  Located on the Peninsula of San Francisco Bay between the Cites of San Francisco and San Jose
  the Los Altos area has a Mediterrean type climate with wet winters and dry summers.
  The weather is modified by the Pacific Ocean on the west and the Bay on the east.
  The soil varies from porous sandy greenstone to the rich but difficult adobe clay.
  A wide range of plants grow here from Redwoods to California Live Oak trees 
     
    The seasons provide year round gardening interest
         
Spring A riot of blossom from flowering trees, bulbs and roses
Summer Oleanders, geraniums, lavenders and other heat loving perennials keep the color going
Autumn Fall color from the Chinese Pistachios and Liquid Amber Trees and the bright berries of shrubs
Winter Camellias, azaleas, correas, acacias and early bulbs enjoy this cooler weather
