Thanks a lot, Max!

The only problem is that there are many mosquitoes from May to late October. Way too many. This can be a problem when you just want to relax and drink your coffee...

nikos.a , that's a fantastic flower garden. What is the flower in the first and last photo? Looks like a hummingbird

HoosierShaver, that is a Bird of Paradise and gets its name from the bird the plant suggests. It is fairly common here in San Diego.

It's a beautiful garden Nick! Does it take lots of time to maintain it?

Such a spectacular garden should be enjoyed.

Here are some items which might enable you to derive the pleasure you deserve from it.

Thank you very much! It's called Strelitzia reginae, but it's also known as the bird of paradise as Freddy already said. It's probably the most beautiful flower I've ever seen. It loves sun. I have planted a few in a spot with no sunlight and no flowers are blooming.
