I just could not stay at work today. So I left at two.
Here we are in the community garden on the other side of my neighborhood.
Well, technically I guess that means we're in a different neighborhood. It's still called Bernal Heights, but this is in the northeast side. Northeast Bernal Heights. We might as well be in a different neighborhood.
Bernal has four community gardens that I can think of, but only two are picture-worthy. And, frankly, while this one is more established and more people garden here, mine is better. (It just is.)
Getting on with things, we have another Echium. This is Echium piniana. You see lots of Echium on this blog because there is lots of Echium in San Francisco.
(Who are they trying to convince?)
Always a popular sign in San Francisco:
This community garden has much better stairs than mine! Not fair. Someone here must have better connections in City Hall.
It's the time of year for calla and euphorbia.
This garden demonstrates just how much you can grow in part-shade. Most of this garden is quite shady.
Funny, my tulips haven't even begun, but these are very nearly over.
I love legume flowers.
The garden story of 2007, bees!
A bee movie.
Okay, I'm bored. Let's see the neighborhood.
This one looks like metal.
Lots of public stairs over here.
They knock down a lot of old houses on this side of the hill and put up these.
What do you think about that?
I think this is beautiful:
Acanthus and fennel.
It not San Francisco without a hippy van.
I snapped this picture when I was driving by. Narrow house!
But I wanted to end with another echium.
You rarely see it pruned up like this.
