This “Secret Courtyard Garden” has evolved over a long period of time and is ever changing. Hidden from street view, and tucked in between two 1920’s Spanish style rentals is my version of what-can-be-done with a smaller, yet quite large for “vintage apt. bldg.” garden space in an old Long Beach neighborhood.
The garden has numerous arbors covered in climbing roses, clematis and jasmine. Many hydrangeas, daylilies, lots of old-fashioned cottage garden flowers, Louisiana Iris, more roses, and many other annuals and perennials supply lots of BOLD color. Follow the connected pathways and discover several places to sit and view the garden each offering a different vantage point.
Lots of garden art and “surprises” pop up where you least expect them.
n Not to be missed!!! Mike’s place is a long-time returning favorite!!!
