Do you know the different Clematises? What's this one?

I like how fuchsias arch and trail without getting too rampant-looking.

This one's a little rampant-looking in this size of bed.

The Acanthus mollis (middle) has leafed out everywhere. The yellow-flowering tree on the left is Acacia baileyana and there's a lot more of that coming too.

Too bad about the graffiti.

This community garden would be a better place to garden than the the community garden plot I currently have...

This little herb bed got off to a nice start, but the Oxalis pes-carpae has arrived.

Chuck, might that Clematis be armandii? That is what it looks like to me. If it has a very sweet aroma, that would be a good indication.

Yes, it was fragrant--I think armandii sounds right. Thanks! The C. rubens montana is pinkish, right? And deciduous? I guess I could look this up in Sunset easily enough.

I was going to guess armandii, too. Yes, the c. rubens montana is pinkish--and I believe that the flowers and leaves are smaller, too.

I LOVE the bright colors on that first house in your post, by the way. And man, do I want an agave in the worst way now. I need to stay away from High Country Gardens' website for a while, I think, or I'll have multiples.

By the way, what's going on at the top of that trellis, where the collection of nursery pots is?

People do that all the time. Is it just a way of storing the 1-g pots? People sometimes use them to plant things when there are gophers present.

Yep. C. armandii. It's lovely. I've seen it completely devour a backyard fence with its profuse white flowers and attractive (I think) leathery leaves.
