As the sun casts its evening light, an ancient flagstone path beckons visitors to take a stroll through this fragrant garden in Claremont, California. Prolific California poppies congregate in quaint clusters. Nestled against handsome boulders, occasionally spilling onto garden paths, they open and close with the rising and setting sun. Salvia chamaedryoides breathe soft hues of blue complementing earthen grays of local river cobble. Santa Barbara Mexican sage ignite as a backdrop with flaming purple inflorescence. A simple umbrella and dining table offer visitors a place to relax and enjoy the company of butterflies, birds, and an occasional lizard basking on a warm boulder. This is a garden to enjoy.
