I've had the pleasure of visiting Darcy Daniels' garden a few times, still I didn't want to pass up the chance to see it all fluffed and primped for the HPSO Study Weekend...
The sign above is in Darcy's hellstrip, as are the plants below. The lady in the purplish shirt (above) is standing on the public sidewalk.
Darcy's driveway, which is not used, obviously.
A wider view...
From the Study Weekend brochure: "Darcy has been gardening since 1998 when she and her husband moved to their little plot in NE Portland. At the time she was new to gardening but dove right in with a passion...Since then the garden has been in a constant state of development—evolving and changing as gardens and gardeners do. The latest incarnation has been focused on making edits to her maturing landscape. For example, she's in the process of making adjustments to her back yard after removing two large trees."

I love this shot!
I know these next three photos are still in the front garden but I'm not sure what's hellstrip and what's her actual lot.
Here we've stepped up into the front garden.
Tempting to sit for a bit, except for the fact I've still got other gardens to see!
The pathway that heads around to the back garden.
One of the very best side yards in all of Portland...
Mangave, maybe 'Bad Hair Day' and my shadow hand...
I love this wall planter!
Darcy's office is in their converted garage. Pretty sweet...
Another tempting sit spot.
Staniding here I could tell there were trees missing but I thought they were gone from a neighbor's yard, not Darcy's.
Love the combination of chartreuse and black. I need to ask Darcy what the chartreuse is.
Even the skinny side yard is fabulous...
Thanks Darcy for opening your garden, again!
