Garden memories with Marcia Lou Barnard Mings

February 8, 1928 - July 29, 2014

A visit to Sherman Library and Gardens in Corona del Mar in southern California where one of Marcia's nephews was married many years ago.

Then it was on to one of her favorite garden centers, Rogers Gardens.

And another day brought a visit to Descanso Gardens. Coast live oaks (Quercus agrifolia), some centuries old, are the remainder of a forest that once blanketed the region. The Coast Live Oak is known as a “keystone species,” supporting the existence of hundreds of other species, including mammals, birds, insects, fungi, plants, and even reptiles and amphibians. The Tongva people who made this region their home relied on acorns as an important food source.
