There's a garden nearby that I visited several years ago and think of ever so often. I remembered it's general location, but couldn't manage to find it—that is until a few weeks ago when I was out anger walking. Surely you know anger walking? It's when you're REALLY upset about something and need to get out and walk it off. Anyway, turns out I'd walked right by this place a few times, except I was on the other side of the street and the plants in the hellstrip have grown so much there's no way I would have recognized the garden, if not for the Erica arborea...Not that I knew that's what it was when I first saw it, nope, ID came from those more knowledgeable than I who commented on the original post, where these photos (that one above and the two below) came from.
It's kinda crazy cool isn't it?
