The next beauty up needs no introduction.

I have some pinks, reds, purples and whites but hands down my absolute favorite of its kind in the garden is the yellows.

I think you know which zodiac she is .. . luscious, audacious and goddamn irresistible.

It can only be the one and only Leo ☀️

The scent literally makes me stop and smell the roses

The petals of this one compared to the other colors seem thicker They are velvety and have a honey and anise fragrance that’s both sweet and rich.

Speaking of rich...

The next flower is not only rich but it’s also raw, soothing and sexy as hell

I’d venture to say she’s a Taurus

The next one in line is a Cancer plant.

As the ultimate nurturer of the zodiac Cancers come in peace. Their mood swings might drive you a little mad but it is worth it.

They will love you, take care of you and remember all your favorite foods.

Behave accordingly.

If you ruthlessly take advantage or wrong them, they probably won’t waste energy clawing you in the face like a Leo, or run you to the ground like an Aries ... but they build such solid, fulfilling and lasting relationships they probably have protective friends who will.

Do not mess with a Cancer.
I repeat do NOT mess with a Cancer.

Their dark and passive aggressive humor will send you back to your own shell crying for mama.

I have four pots of these in my yard and I’ll probably get more.

I’m on fire with these plant and zodiac pairings, aren’t I?

Moving on to Aries!

At their best Aries is dynamic and pioneering.

They’ve got things to do and goals to achieve.

Please try to understand this.

In their core they’re really not trying to upset you or rub you the wrong way. They’re just doing what’s in their heart.

And if possible try to be supportive of their dreams and passions because it really does mean a lot to them.

However, if you’re the type who still doesn’t get it, or worse... you go out of your way to derail them... then oh lordy you will most likely get hurt.

Oh no the last pic came out blurry. I just cropped it instead of properly zooming in and taking another pic. Not a good move.

Nice thing about this “report” is I can just go outside and re do the shot.
Hopefully these are clearer.

The next plants remind me of my childhood in the Philippines. They were everywhere!

Vibrant and vivacious, these bougainvilleas play in the sun!

They're malleable and resilient to the gusty winds coming through the Santa Monica Mountains.

Sometimes they topple on the ground but they're never damaged, branches fully intact. Always blooming, over delivering.

If I had to save only one bougainvillea she would be it.

One more with some mountain backdrop ...
