Here's some more Acacia baileyana, as I promised. My camera did not capture even half the visual splendor of this tree when I walked by it today. It was mesmerizing.
I like strawberry pots, especially ones with lots of little planting spots.
Some white-flowering variety of Ribes sanguineum poking out from under some ivy.
This is a late-winter flowering western native currant. If you like having witch hazel in your east coast garden, you might like to have this in your west coast garden. Usually, the flowers are pink. I have a few in my garden, and none of them have flowers yet. Sigh.
More Acanthus mollis. This plant thrives everywhere in the City on winter rains alone.
This house looks like it could be a variation on my house. I haven't noticed a lot of them on the north side of Bernal Hill (I live on the south side).
And this house's garden has some of the same succulents I have in my house's garden. Heh.
The hill that blocks view, as the sign in the Agave warns.
I would call this an unusual variegation pattern for Agave americana. Yes? No? Usually it's more clearly banded.
When I was a kid, I really liked this style! The City recent passed a law requiring everyone to hide their garbage cans from the street view. It'll be awhile before it gets across.
The grocery store often has art from the neighborhood elementary school in the windows.
I tried to superimpose my reflected face in this one.
