A mixture of native and drought-tolerant plants thrive in the garden, which is now a certified Backyard Wildlife Habitat. Sycamore and elderberry trees create shade, and white sage covers the hillside. When it rains, a creek meanders down the slope. Red trumpet flowers tempt hummingbirds and butterflies. Guavas, lemons, and mandarin oranges beg to be picked.
