Photography Monday: South Pasadena Garden Tour 2014 Part II

The 2014 South Pasadena Garden Tour had seven sustainable gardens for viewing and at least 400 people took advantage of the free tour.  Each unique garden showed off principles of sustainability from the use of drought tolerant California native and Mediterranean landscaping, planting for wildlife including ponds and bird habitat to permeable paving options and recycling organic waste.

Nice, cool respite from the dry, summer heat.

This garden was by far our favorite because it had a variety of plants in lots of colors and textures.  There was a nice mix of drought tolerant plants with roses, succulents and mature trees.  It had a painterly feel with a strong organic composition.

Come back next week for another installment of this wonderful garden tour.
