If you've enjoyed my posts about the McMenamins gardens, especially Kennedy School, you might want to check out their new Gardener's Blog (click on the link). Written by Erich Petschke (the fellow who has answered my many plant i.d. inquiries), the inaugural post is about the making of the "new" Xeric bed, the one with the agaves and great spiky plants.These are pictures of the Xeric garden from a walk last Friday. It's looking especially fabulous right now! I can't wait to see the Echium boissieri bloom!
