I visited late in September. I suspect the tree just behind the fence, center of the photo, was felled by our wicked Labor Day windstorm, the one that started the horrible firestorms. I used Google Maps street-view to discover that it was a large, lovely Albizia julibrissin.Weather Diary, Nov 5: Hi 64, Low 50/ Precip .73"
It's a corner lot, this is the south-side (previously we we were looking at the west-facing front). I really love the way the fence is set back from the sidewalk substantially, allowing for a wide planting area at its base.
And opuntia! There were many spiky opuntia, most of them growing in the hell-strips.
Here's the back view, you can see how the yucca is using the sign-pole for support.
Just a couple more images...
And then I headed back to my car, and spotted this just up the street. Fun! Although the couch needs to go.
