The vintage stock tank catches my eye every time I pass by...
This time however it was the fence that jumped out at me, after all I’ve been on a bit of a fence finding mission.
I like it!
And the vintage stock tanks.
These trachycarpus are so lush.
There are 3 of them planted in a row and somehow they’ve kept their lower leaves, usually with a trunk that size the lower leaves would have yellowed and been removed by now.
Not my style, but it always makes me smile.
Another fence (and a much greyer day)…
This one has me scratching my head. What’s with the tilted wire cut-outs?
I don’t get it! Why the tilt?
Here’s a follow up on a post from last December.
The fifteen agaves and an opuntia are all looking pretty sad.
I had to counter that with a happy agave, in my next-door neighbor’s garden.
I drive by this palm all the time and I’ve never seen any winter protection around it. Yet it always looks good.
I’m sure you palm fans can tell me what it is and if it should look this good after snow, ice and temperatures in the low teens.
Yikes! This is not good. It was much more dramatic in person; the tree in the front actually goes out of frame to rest on the top of the neighbor’s house.
Windy nights keep me awake picturing scenes just like this involving the two towering Dour Fir trees looming over our house.
