My Backyard Spring Garden

Oh, this is the reason I enjoy gardening so much! IMG_1526This section of my backyard consists primarily of roses, but also features alstromeria (Peruvian lily), lantana, and French lavender. A bit of maintenance and patience pays off during these days!

CONSUMER ALERT UPDATE: There have been reports that alstromeria or Peruvian lily plant is poisonous if it is ingested. Please take care with this plant.

Additionally, lantana is highly poisonous if it is ingested. I’ve gotten a rash after pruning it.

More information on toxic plants can be found here:
