New Neighbors at Last

More On Gail’s Serenity Garden


Hillside Beauty

You do get what you pray for. Sometimes it takes a little longer than other times.

Our neighbor with the weeds and rundown yard has moved out and a wonderful couple has moved in.

Changes are already in evidence. The weeds that were two feet above the top of our fence are now gone. Yeah! The trees in their back yard have been pruned and trimmed back and one was taken out. Our new neighbors came over yesterday to have us signoff on the colors they’ve chosen to paint their home. (We have Home Owner’s Association which wasn’t much help with the previous owner.) They have a Rhodesian Ridgeback dog upset by the move, but they have taken steps to calm her and “All is Quiet on the Western Front.”  I looked it up on the internet and this dog comes from Africa and was used to hunt lions.  Very interesting don’t you think so?

Meanwhile Gail’s Serenity Garden is getting quite a bit of rain which is a blessing for our garden and this whole area. A special blessing is that this is the fire season in Southern California and we have rain at the perfect time.

The hillside is filling in and My Garden Angel brought in more nice rocks and placed them on the hillside. She also moved one of the purple Pride of Madera from down below at the base of the hillside up toward the top of the hill a perfect place for it. It should do well with this wonderful rain.

The branch from a neighbor’s Twisty Willow Tree has rooted and is very happy in a beautiful cobalt blue pot and loves the rain.

I miss my Garden Angel as she is busy helping other people with their gardens. But she will come back when I need her. That’s what Angels do.
