Here we are, back on the streets in the Bay Area...
There were many amazing plants competing for the title of the "it" plant of this vacation, but I think the winner was the loquat, Eriobotrya japonica. While I saw a few Eriobotrya deflexa, the bronze loquat, most were the plain old, plain old, which to me is neither plain or old. Of course when they're growing behind a gorgeous agave it helps.
You should know by now I love a good poodle/cake/cloud prune. Of course the odd conical shape in the sidewalk (emerging from a red brick scalloped edged circle, no less) throws me a bit.
Still those are sweet.
I wanted to follow that pathway around back to see what there was to see...
I want to live in this neighborhood, love the houses.
Oh yes I do...and the gardens too...
One of just a few Agave bovicornuta I've planted seen in the ground. It's a beauty.
Palms, yucca, grevillea, leucadendron...(oh my!)
What's not to love?
This photo almost became a post all on it's own. How amazing is this combination? So perfect.
Clearly they're happy together.
That's a lot of pups!
When I snapped this photo of the Grevillea 'Moonlight' (?) I didn't even see the hummingbird.
An unintentional capture that turned out pretty terrific!
I really am a Californian gardener at heart. I mean just look at those phormium!
And that. All that...
