Did you find yourself squinting, trying to get the image in focus? Unfortunately these photos were taken with the not so great Cannon camera that I was using last fall and winter... so blurry it is. I've since went back to Sony for quick landscape shots and casual garden visits and couldn't be happier.
It was January 9th when I visited. Pretty amazing that a garden was looking this fabulous in early January.
You may have wondered what the large orange trunk in the above shot was attached to, for once I looked up.
And then my focus drifted to these beauties.
And of course an agave will always draw my attention.
There were a few.
Along with happily fruiting opuntia and a nice Nolina 'La Siberica'.
Such great color, especially in a winter garden.
Standing back for another overall shot...
And then walking up the sidewalk on the side of the property.
Nice mahonia, I think M. gracilipes.
Daphne, oh so fragrant.
Definitely Mahonia gracilipes.
And finally, cyclamen...
And a lot of hellebore (I think?) foliage. No doubt the flowers were equally impressive.
