An Artist’s Retreat–Small yard, lots happening! Welcome to a yard filled with butterflies, birds, lizards and art. The front yard is a WWF Monarch Way Station and bird habitat, planted with low-water usage plants and California natives. The cool, quiet kitchen patio is filled with houseplants that preferred being outdoors, a succulent nursery and nesting humming birds. In the backyard, you’ll find a Koi pond where numerous species of birds drink and bathe daily with the occasional wild duck. There are trees for nesting and a variety of seed and nectar feeders. In the small, sunny side yard is a veggie garden and nesting places for pollinating bumble bees. Mixed in with the plants are paintings, sculptures and an assortment of art objects left behind by my high school students. New to the garden this year are more native plants, succulents and a healing herb garden. We are also experimenting with a living wall.
