Point Loma Garden Walk held last week

Here are a few photos from the Point Loma Garden Walk held last weekend. The 8th Annual, it's always a huge success due to very giving & fun women that make up the Dana Unit of Rady Children's Hospital Auxiliary. I love being a part of it. The weather was more than perfect and everyone got to experience a little of what Sunset Cliffs has to offer.

This planted container won my heart. Positioned so simply on a window sill of one of the earliest homes in the Sunset Cliffs area. It says it all, doesn't it?

My friends, Cindy and Amanda (mother & daughter team) with their uniquely planted iron pieces. Most of their plants are heirloom. I know the maidenhair fern is fourth generation from Cindy's grandmother. So beautiful and hearty, our garden attendees love it!
One of the best cottage gardens in all of Point Loma - the Briers' home. They're the greatest family and Calvin, who is a landscape & waterscape architect by trade, did his home justice. It's welcoming.
This is their backyard.

In this beautiful garden, the homeowner prepared fresh berries on a whimsical, garden table setting. We wanted to sit down and spend the afternoon there.
Another great house who's owner is a Master Gardener. She has two compost bins, very large ones, and has never bought soil for her gardens in over four years. I was amazed by her - I need to take one of her classes she offers.
Roses with a view of the ocean. Life is good.

Thank you! It WAS a great day and so many, many nice people. Garden walks and home tours are such a positive experience and usually are for a good cause as ours was. So next year you'll ahve to try and go. Make a weekend of it in San Diego!
Thank you for visiting my blog! I'm very flattered,
