more about our garden
Jill planted over 50 heirloom roses and a variety of herbaceous borders around the 50 x 70 ft lawn. We brought in specimen trees and grew others from cuttings and seeds. We built outdoor sitting areas, romantic corners and colonnades which we stuccoed in what became our trademark Cielo Golden Yellow.
The Rancho del Cielo gardens are a work in progress, as are all gardens. And like all gardens, ours is a place we return to again and again, to weed and rake and water and feed. Or just to sit in the shade of the colonnade and watch the hummingbirds and smell the roses.
