I was already swooning from the sight of the ginormous Brugmansia tree, the big-leaved Gunnera look-alike (with the Arum-like spike in the middle,) and the pink tea-tree cloud, when I saw the Watsonia blossoms at Coit tower - OMG. Now I'm drooling. I used to frolic on the Filbert steps with a high school chum who lived in Cow Hollow. Boy did these shots bring back the carefree memories. I just love this blog. Incredible cityscape overviews, too. The pastel stucco and cathedral spires and the fog, glorious cooling fog!

I love the blog too. It's fun to see what's out for you. Here in the Santa Cruz mountains we seem always to be a month behind. Iris and roses just barely starting, for example. Rabbits are in full force, however, frolicking, so to speak, with all the new tender shoots of things. I've finally grown to accept that one has to accept it all!

I love your tours. I can't wait to see what you have each day(-:
I sure is pretty there(-:
My Watsonia hates me I guess. It never blooms. I wonder why. Maybe I should dig it up and move it somewhere else. I think it may be in to much shade where it is at. That one in the pictures is beautiful!

Wow, it's so green! I really loved SF--it's a big city but it felt very comfortable.

Your city tours almost make one want to live in a big city. Almost.

It always amazes me how green and lush garden wise the city is from your view at streel level compared to the concreteness of the sweeping city views.
