In case you are just joining us, I am doing another stairway walk. We visited the Tiled Steps during in Part I. This would be Part II, The Neighborhood.
This appears to be some kind of eucalypt that's been topped and trained as a hedge. I'm looking for a botanical name. The colors are lovely.
Farther along, two ubiquitous plants frequently seen together in San Francisco: Lavatera assurgentiflora and Prunus cerasifera 'Atropurpurea'.
This is Golden Gate Heights Park, and I have no idea why it's called that.
The hilltop is sandy!
And quite engulfed by fog.
