The same neighbor has a huge old clump of Kniphofia in her parking strip, it had become a little ragged and a few weeks back she chopped it off about 8” above the ground. Doing so revealed the circle that the plants had formed; the original plant must have occupied the center? I want an established old clump of Kniphofia just like this!
Different neighbor, pruned shrubs. I remember walking past her house late last summer? right after the hack job had been done. She was distressed and I tried to assure her that they would grow back. Sort of.
This neighbor has me infected with a serious case of Manzanita envy. As a result I am on the Manzanita “call when in” list at Garden Fever. Evergreen, manageable size, amazing bark…what’s not to love?
The same neighbor also has a Ceanothus. I’ve been watching it through the seasons making sure I like it before I commit. I was staring at it for a good 3 minutes before I actually saw this nest.
This is my Flower Power neighbor. She’s always changing things up and always has hundreds of flowers in her garden. Do you suppose she intentionally chose Husky (Univ of Washington) colors? I’ll have to ask. And was the one red Anemone on purpose or a happy accident?
Another Magnolia. I wanted to share with you the view I normally have of this tree, but that would’ve required my standing in the middle of a busy street to take the picture. Not going to happen.
I love this fabulous moss garden on top of an old fence.
Back home I am thrilled with the first blooms on our Clematis armandii, since it failed to bloom last year…
As well as this surprise white Crocus. I didn’t plant this, at least not on purpose. I think it hitched a ride on the Sedum I traded for last year (Concordia Neighborhood plant exchange).
