Winter Plants, Today when I hung the Christmas lights, I thought this is what Christmas must be like in San Diego. The temperature was in the 60’s. I took a walk through the yard while I was outside and saw there are still some beautiful sights in the garden at this time of year.
At this time of year, the nice thing about there not being leaves on the plants and trees is Mother Nature shows off not only the bark and berries, but the structure and colors of her beauties.
