Slowly wander down the palm lined path taking in the jewels of the understory plantings. Ruby red aeoniums sparkle next to sapphire blue senecio. Stalks of amber colored grasses beckon you to explore further down the path.

Hey, I haven't seen a agrden I like this much since you posted the Pina Colada Garden. Beautiful! I am pleased to see another gatdener thatleaves his trowel in one of the pots for easy access (I do that). The raised water feature with the BUdda is faboo, especially all the forest of red Aeoniums around it. Great assortment of plants in pots, lovely pond, nice pool setting, wow, what a yard. Thanks for show casing this...

Very nice tranquil garden. Love the lotus plants floating on water at front of Buddha so peaceful.

Spectacular in every way. I would love to see a punch of purple added to the pool vignette with the turquoise and lime.

As always Michelle, thank you for sharing your beautiful photos of yet another stunning garden. :)

I'm so happy that you all had a chance to see this garden , even if it was just in photographic form.
It is the most inspirational garden that I have experienced.
I visited this garden again last weekend and have some new photos to share.
There are so many wonderful little vignettes tucked away here and there , it is hard to find them all in just one or two visits.

Thanks again for sharing this garden with me. Michelle
