Starting with, street-side agaves backed by a gorgeous tree-sized brugmansia.
Such a great assortment! Is that a Araucaria heterophylla at the rear?
I want a beach-ball shaped Agave victoriae-reginae.
And waterfalls of aeonium.
A parting shot of this garden before we move on...
I believe this one was right next door.
Such a colorful stressed and spidery aloe.
This garden was simple but so effective in it's restrained plant palette.
As I was snapping photos here I became aware of a neighbor watching me. Hoping to calm his concern I mentioned I was a plant-lover visiting from Portland, just out to capture photos of as many of the exuberant plant-filled gardens as I could. Turns out he and his wife had recently moved from Portland to La Conchita, lucky man!
Beaucarnea recurvata, something you will not see in a garden in Portland.
I loved this old bus.
Then I saw it's name, perfect.
That must have been some wind, to blow a canoe up into the tree stump! Actually I remember this garden from my first stop in La Conchita way back in 2019, with Gerhard. Good to see it's still fabulous.
I can't imagine how old this guy must be, or how much it must weigh.
Oh my. Getting out of that car must be a treacherous maneuver.
A fabulous vintage mobile home to go with the vintage bus I shared earlier.
Are you getting the idea this place is full of personality?
Finally a freeway-side garden at the end of a street, tended by some gardening resident(s).
Here's a better shot, where you can see the cars zipping by on U.S. Route 101, the ocean lies just beyond.
I'll be back again someday La Conchita!
