This fabulous combination of colors and textures was a happy discovery after parking to walk back and take another picture. Look at the agave nestled in there like a crown.
This scene was what I originally parked to photograph; the black chain link fence with black wooden slats makes a great backdrop for the tropical border.
And of course the chunky plaster columns do a great job of visually anchoring the whole scene.
Another happy discovery walking back to my car. These trees were absolutely glowing!
Being tree-ignorant I have no idea what they are. I’m sure someone can educate me, please?
Another garden…look at that bamboo!
And the parking strip grasses are lovely.
So many fabulous textures in this next garden.
A bit further down the street I found palms, a monkey puzzle tree and yuccas…a parking strip after my own heart.
The simple front garden of the same house (note the monkey puzzle tree reflected in the window).
Just down the street…wow…look at these opuntia! I’m jealous.
In the same garden…an entire front lawn that isn’t lawn, pretty cool don’t you think?
Moving on…what initially caught my eye in this garden is a monster tetrapanax.
