A long walk, Part V

I still don't have a better name.

But here's the red-flowering Eucalyptus ficifolia I told you about at the beginning.

A woman crossing the street. I rarely include pictures of people in the blog, but I like to.

Another E. ficifolia, behind Maytenus boaria. A tree that brings a lot of visitors to this blog.

From a block away, I mistook this Tibouchina for a Bougainvilla (sp?).

But I did not mistake thsi Bougainvilla for a Tibouchina.

Planted by an owner (or, more likely, a previous owner), and professionally pruned by a maintenance gardener, clearly. You can see this was done by someone who's pruned many bougainvilla in San Francisco, and knows what he or she has to do.

Another Maytenus boaria.

And in the middle of it all, there's one of these.

I really dig that bed in front of the slate-blue house with the blue trim... the one with what appears to be stipa/nasella tenuissima in it. You must like it, too, because I think you've posted a couple of pictures of it now.
