After visiting Emma's garden, and the Eleanor Community Garden, we went to the Gamble Garden.
Big spring plant sales coming up soon, everywhere.
(Light brown apple moth quarantine--lots of drama going on.)
They have Echium wildpretii for sale.
And lots of own-root roses.
These irises naturalize readily (too readily?) in California gardens.
Flat after flat of interesting succulents.
Echium wildpretii in the...orchard. Well, why not. Gamble has an extensive collection of espaliered apple and pear trees.
And a large cutting garden.
And big vegetable beds.
Wildflowers are blooming in the native garden outside the garden gate. This is Phacelia tanacetifolia.
I've been here once before. It was winter then and I had a hard time relating. I'm still having a hard time relating to the garden's particular logic, but there's a lot more to see and in spring than winter.
