This makes me so happy! This was Laguna Nursery in California. I told Mr. Pearl that I am going to landscape our yard with giant, metal flowers and pool noodles. They are so FUN! Mr. P didn't think they would be received as warmly by our neighborhood association and conservative neighbors, but I'm still thinking about it.
Our trip to Southern California was so beautiful. The near perfect temperatures and rainfall make for the most lush and colorful landscape of anywhere I have seen. San Juan Capistrano's gardens were breathtaking. The roses were huge and their smell perfumed the air. I hated to leave!
Looking at these pictures, I am inspired! I think I'll go and plant some noodles.
