More photos














Here are some pics I took this morning of the plants Mark from Oakland donated. They got nicely rained on. You can see the little rock garden of succulents that Matt put together, below. You cannot see all the daffodil bulbs I planted, but take it from me... they're there. I put long trenches of them parallel to the dietes (top row), in front of the geraniums and alongside the Agapanthus. I also put some individually around the base of the Princess Plant (Tibouchina)

I had a wacky idea to plant the bulbs in a giant smiley face shape, or spelling out something (something short...) but in the end sense prevailed and I went with drifts.










I'm a bit bummed that they will come up in multicolored drifts, and not groups of one color, but that's what happens when you buy bulk bulbs on the cheap! It'll be "a look" eh? And maybe if I am feeling extremely energetic in Spring I will take note of what colors came up where, and rearrange them. Or maybe by then the challenges of public gardening will have beaten me down and I won't care anymore - as long as they are alive!

  1. Hey guys,
    Great job on the garden. Having planted the "starter tree" (with the purple flowers) I am so happy to see all your great work. I promise to help in future. I am particularly interested in making the space dog-friendly and also the dog walkers garden-friendly. Would like to explore composting the dog waste; just having a hard time figuring out how to get it from point A to point B, if you get my drift.

    Jim

  2. Hah - yes! Well I think the solution is the bag post, and sign. I'm going to try and make that happen this weekend!

    Your tree is looking good - there are roots growing under there!
