Greetings From the Left Coast

Well, needless to say, a lot has happened since I was last in this space. I was all packed up, got on a plane and flew all the way across the country. My new home is in San Diego. This is a beautiful place, but couldn't be more different from North Carolina if it tried. I haven't sewn anything yet. I was here for almost 2 weeks before I finally saw my stuff and it has been quite busy unpacking and setting things to rights. I hope to be able to start sewing this week. My new space is almost ready and I will take pictures of it soon. For now, let me show you around.

 Welcome to the Garden House. My sister has referred to the house by this name for a very long time.
This is the front of the house. There are many beautiful rose bushes in the front that my sister is so talented in growing.
 There are many other plants and flowers growing all around the house. She truly has a green thumb.
                                              More roses on the patio.

 This one and the one below are bougainvillea that are growing over the back fence. They are all over the place here and right now every one of them is in bloom and make the neighborhood look so pretty.

 The rest of these are pictures I took on a walk around the neighborhood. I don't know what many of them are, but there are so many different plants, flowers and succulents in the yards around here.

          Some yards have no grass and are all plants and river stones.

                This is a type of Jasmine and it smells wonderful.
                  I'm pretty sure these are Ginkgo leaves on this tree.
These are birds of paradise.
And to finish this up for now, a picture of a California sunset from my front porch. Ahhhhhh...
Talk to you soon.
