If you haven’t noticed by now, being outside is a must for us during the summer. I know we’ve said it before, but we seriously look for any excuse to get outside and enjoy our beautiful, Southern California weather. But what else can we do while we’re outside besides go to the beach? We can enjoy the garden! We love stepping out to the backyard to see all the beautiful flowers and plants. It’s nice to slow down, unplug from the modern world and get lost in nature. It takes a little work and effort, but it’s so rewarding when the flowers bloom and the garden grows. Plus you get the added bonus of the lovely natural scents when you’re out in the backyard. Check out some of these wonderful garden examples we found and helped us forget we aren’t out there enjoying them.
