Enjoying the Little Things at Alta Loma

Alta Loma’s perennials like the grape vine, guava tree, and passion vines are looking awesome right now. It is the changing of guards right now for most of the annuals. We have lots of new plants in the ground and lots of seeds that just popped above the soil.
