Summer here in San Diego has been lovely. We've had some pretty hot days, but the heat doesn't bother me at all. I love the way the heat weighs and slows everyone down. That's what summer's all about if you ask me. I've been enjoying my time off, lazily listening to music, reading, taking the dogs on evening walks and musing in my own thoughts.
If you didn't already know, I work at a plant nursery. One of the best things about working at a nursery is getting first dibs on some of the most stunning plants as they arrive. Since I started working at the nursery, I've been yearning for a house with a yard desperately. We just signed another years lease at our current place so a house isn't in our future just yet. In the meantime, I've been keeping up nicely with my little patio garden. Here's some pictures I took this morning of summer's flora at casa de Toni. Botanical names listed below each plant. Enjoy!
Dahlia 'Mystic Dreamer'
Pelargonium 'George Marston'
Sedum dasyphullum 'Major'
Tradescantia spathacea 'Tricolor'
Aeonium 'Irish Bouquet'
