Marnie, your garden looks beautiful! I wish I could see more! The crotons look so healthy and vigorous. The Zanzibar and Dolores together are gorgeous. I also enjoyed seeing your mulch. What type mulch do you use on your driveway, or in the area by the rocks. It is so natural looking and even. I love it.
Thanks for the nice comments Anna. Sorry the pix are so small, I'm working on that. Love that you "Gardening freaks" enjoyed the mulch. You would really love that we mulched the entire front yard. We have such a nice canopy and simply couldn't grow grass there so decided to mulch it a few years ago and have been very happy with it. We started with Home Depot mulch which has been mixed with our falling leaves (Shady-lady black olive trees) over the year. It's really great...........don't have to rake leaves which leaves more time for croton air-layers, etc.

Anna, I was being lazy and using my phone. Guess I'll take a few with the camera when it clears. Really raining right now..........plants are smiling!
Looking back saw this and thought it needed a revisit!
