Montecito Landscape

I recently spent an morning visiting the San Ysidro Ranch, a drop dead gorgeous hotel in Montecito, a small enclave about 80 miles north of LA. The hotel, which is nestled at the base of the Santa Barbara mountains is set amidst breathtaking gardens – vegetable beds, lily ponds, lavender, hydrangeas, olives trees, fig trees and more. I headed back to LA overflowing with inspiration and a drive to get to work in the garden and make things gorgeous for fall!
