It's been awhile, time to get back out on the sidewalk and see what my neighbors in NE Portland are up to! Love this combination...
I had a contoneaster like this in my garden in Spokane. It was inherited, I never knew exactly which one it was, in fact for the longest time I called it the fish-bone plant, until I finally learned it had a name.
Oh! This looks promising.
I love the tawny hakonechloa in place, I bet it looks pretty fabulous when it's green as well.
There's got to be something interesting behind that gate, I'm sure of it. I think I'll be stalking this one.
Any gardener who plants things that close together, they're a plant nut.
A different house, a very cool gate/door.
Rhododendron sinogrande flanking the front steps, fun!
Now I'm walking down an alley. There are still quite a few of these in NE Portland. Some overgrown weed patches, some a muddy mess just calling for a Land Cruiser owner to try and get stuck in (yes, I speak from experience) and some like this, paved and tidy. It's that lookout/fort that's caught my attention.
I want one.
Nice fence, I wonder if they like the laurel growing through?
Painting project! Which color would you choose?
This reminds me of the old fence we replaced behind the shade pavilion. I loved that green growth on the weathered brown, and miss it!
Manzanita and yucca, caught in a hug.
Every bloom on this euphorbia is deformed like this, to some degree. I need to come back a few weeks from now and see what they look like further developed.
This is the official gathering place for gulls in the neighborhood.
Being on top of the tallest house for blocks around I bet they've got a pretty great view.
You can dress it up and make it fancy but at the end of the day, it's still a tire.
I've shared these before. I like to go by every now and then to make sure they're still there, and doing okay.
Ready for mardi-gras!
There's some funny business going on here.
Do ya think?
And here we end. This assortment made me smile...
