Fall in the garden of my guru

Emma's been wondering where the pictures I took in her garden are! I took these before we went to Yerba Buena.

Eriogonum arborescens is one of my favorite, favorite plants.

Terrific, xeric garden your friend has! No wonder she's your guru!

Ooooh... lovely. She has a real way with those grasses, and planting under trees in general!

Is that red/orange flowering plant in the middle of the last picture the "etteri" form of zauschneria? I hope you say yes, because I really want mine to look like that next year. :)

It looks great, whether I can recognize the plants or not. We have some kind of Baccharus in Central Texas and also grow Salvia leucantha, but is that a citrus tree in photo three? The seed heads look dramatic in photo 9, and the grass gate is wonderful.

Hope you're okay, Chuck.

Kangaroo paw? I have only seen that at the florist! A bit of kangaroo envy here! Great shots of all plants I admire but cannot grow! Thanks for sharing them.

I'm with Annie, Chuck...I hope all is well with you, xoxo~hug~! I'm concerned about the fires burning out there...not that close to you (I hope, I think), but I hope your family is not affected.
