Blogging for Natives

For a while, my friend and I have laboured in our California native gardens. I'm town mouse, living in suburbia and trying to put together a front and back yard that's sustainable, attracts critters, and does not annoy the neighbors. She's country mouse, working on a restoration garden in the mountains.

With the elections over and the first rains giving us all a boost, it's time to get started. My hope is that we can collect some useful information, share successes and warn about failures, post photos, and create community. If nothing else, we can chronicle the joys and surprises a native plant garden can bring.
