My third, and final, garden stop on Friday took me to the Woodside Library. The California native garden behind the library is one of my favorite...native gardens. I like to visit when I can.
I found it drenched in sunlight.
So drenched in sun in fact, I could not see what I was taking pictures of in my camera's LCD viewer. All I could do was point the camera, press the button, and hope for the best.
I had forgotten they added three Ceanothus 'Tuxedo' plants the time I was here. They've grown at least 6 feet since then.
The plant was developed for it's black foliage. You can read about it here.
It shimmered copper-bronze in full sun.
I found some respite from the sun under the redwoods at the back of the garden.
I had a little visitor.
