Woo hoo! It's been a really long week )ahem...cough!( but it's finally Friday. I'm gonna to walk up to the pea patch to fertilize the tomatoes and plant out this annual Lupinus densiflorus. Come with me!
My neighbor's sycamore has all leafed out. I like it next to the purple Prunus cerasifera.
This is the hottie fireman neighbor's car.
Looks like someone's going to plant some Ficus pumila.
These pots would get so much more love and respect chez moi.
This is the ratty flower patch next to the neighborhood library. I should ask them to let me take this over.
This is the new Peruvian restaurant that just opened.
It used to be a sushi place, but the sushi place moved here...
which used to be a vegetarian restaurant, that was previously a butcher shop.
This is the new wine bar I haven't been to yet. We're going tomorrow night.
This is the Mexican place we eat at all the time. The woman who owns it is really on top of things; when she takes the night off, the place falls apart.
But the food is always good, and they often serve hand-made tortillas. You can never enjoy a factory tortilla after going hand-made.
Arbutus unedo...among the most beautiful of trees.
What a miserable looking Callistemon citrinus.
The obligatory hippie (mini-)van.
I would like to have some stained glass. Like a branch of a lemon tree with a little bird on it or something would be nice, I think.
Is it bad feng shui to have your front door below grade?
Magnificent Eriobotrya...thinned out in the crown, like it should be!
I can never not take a picture of this Fremontodendron.
I love it.
Lots of roadwork going on...to what end, I don't know. This machine looks like a big toy.
We finally made it.
I need to get cages for these tomatoes. The ones in my backyard are three times as big as these.
We got a spiffy new shed...
And a fabulous new planting box.
Okay, we're done here.
The walk home...
...is all downhill.
Some blue steps.
I'm loving pink geranium these days.
(So hell froze over.)
