"To see a World in a Grain of Sand and beauty in a Wild Flower, is to hold Infinity in the palm of your hand and Eternity in an hour." - William Blake, Auguries of Innocence
A mature shade tree, a magnolia and a fence line graced with rosemary bushes greet you as you approach the super long driveway up to the front door. The southwest area of the rear yard has a pepper tree, under which are narcissus bulbs, and an olive bush. Orange/yellow lantanas are interspersed among the hedges of Indian Hawthorne. Iceberg roses flourish on one side of the home, and there are a smattering of day lilies, a bird of paradise, penstemons, and a salvia which is a favorite of hummingbirds.
The potted flowers at the patio cover which are irrigated by a drip system include two hanging fuchsias, a fragrant Madagascar jasmine vine, and two intertwined honeysuckle vines. A jade plant resides in a freestanding pot in the midst of it all.
The center bed of the rear yard has a large Chinese elm and two smaller offspring. Under it are birds of paradise, English and Spanish lavenders and aloes. Planted along the iron fence are a hibiscus and a butterfly bush. Blue and white lantanas form the rest of the ground cover.
On one side of the pond in which Goldie, the koi fish resides, there is a giant bird of paradise and horsetails, while on the other side are bougainvilleas. In the middle of the pond there is a sago palm in one bed and a succulent in the other.
The potted plants on the patio include Maui Gold pineapples along with a succulent. Shading the patio table are two different species of willow trees. Two kinds of vines cover the entire wall: one is a star jasmine and the other a red/yellow flowering trumpet vine. Surrounding the seating area are aloes, blue Nile lilies, lantanas, birds of paradise and bougainvilleas. Star jasmines form the cover at the base of the weeping willow tree.
In the southeast area of the rear yard, in the raised planter, are lantanas (bush and ground cover), lavenders, geraniums, and daylilies. Next to the willow, there are irises and Indian Hawthornes. There is a wonderful grassy area off to one side for, perhaps, putting green enthusiasts.

"The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity...and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself." - William Blake
