The Garden Bloggers were met in front of the garden by Panayoti Kelaidis, Senior Curator and Director of Outreach at the DBG. He welcomed us, gave us a bit of history...
And then took off through the garden, we followed.
Not down that pathway (truth be told I never did make it down that pathway).
No we were on a mission: lunch. We ate in the center of the garden and were then on our own for a hour or so (a painfully short amount of time). I returned the next day, post-Fling, with Andrew. What follows is a mash-up of photos from both visits.
Yucca faxoniana, on the left.
Yucca thompsoniana here, and resting.
The water-smart garden...
Marrubium rotundifolium, this grows in my garden.
Agave is utahensis ssp. kaibabensis
And again, because it's beautiful.
There were a lot of different opuntia in the garden, I didn't catch the name of most of them. (update, this one is Opuntia polyacantha 'Crystal Tide').
Opuntia 'Dark Knight.'
There were several sculptures in the garden. This one I liked, most of them I did not.
And there was water...
And trough gardens...
More from the garden later this week...
