In the front garden is a succulent perennial with flowers just now “blooming” into color. After some lovely rains (and a big hail on Janmashtami), Jyoti Dham garden has 2 white columbines, a golden day lily, 2 orange marigolds, alyssum in purple and white, plus the pink succulent. While taking these photos, a hummingbird was dipping into the flowers in the hanging basket (above), The new little garden below the deck with sage and lavender is also doing well. The peacock and flower garlands are from Janmashtami) Enjoy~
