Tumblr Tuesday (Impatience Style)
Not even close. It’s a Saturday, for Pete’s sake. I just haven’t done a Tumblr Tuesday post since November, and thought it time to put one together! Impatient me just can’t wait (and forget to post it yet again this coming Tuesday), plus I’ve been getting distracted with other writing I’ve been working on for Pacific Horticulture and for my own new blog of autobiographical tales.
I’ve got a slew of pix to share from the boZannical Tumblr. So nyah. Here they are, Tuesday or not. Click any pic to open a carousel-style gallery, where you can navigate through the herd with clicks or keyboard arrows…
Aloe plicatilis in bloom on the steps of 20th St, at Sanchez.
Slanting Moribana Variation #5 for my Ikebana class. Leucadendron ‘Safari Goldstrike’ and Acacia covenyi.
Upright Moribana Variation #5, with two Leucadendrons: ‘Safari Goldstrike’ and ‘Jester’.
Ginkgo leaves fallen in a Bulbine caulescens.
Fun little hanging terrarium arrangement I planted up at Flora Grubb Gardens.
Stricken by the beauty of wet fallen leaves.
A tiny Abutilon flower hanging over a fence at Sutro Forest.
My Basic Slanting Moribana arrangement for finals in Ikebana.
Leucadendron blooming on Belgrave.
More Belgrave blooming.
Garrya elliptica, a California native, in bloom on Belgrave.
Whoa! That’s a lotta yucca!
Pretty little front entrance vignette on either Pond or Prosper St in the Castro.
This is the only variety of broom that is non-invasive in California. 🙂
Big pink balls swinging in the breeze. The flowers of Dombeya wallichii.
Cute little sculpture in a driveway garden on 22nd St.
Nice ode to fire engine red in front of a former firehouse-turned-house on 22nd St.
Abutilon at the Sutro Forest garden I tend.
Forget-Me-Nots at my Sutro Forest client.
Sure signs of a Schinus molle (pink peppercorn tree) about to fail on Castro.
I like the sculpture, but it looks really funny in this planter box in Cole Valley.
Spotted this little Christmas number just off the beach in Stinson Beach. Love it!
Newhall St in the Bayview. Vine trying to get through.
Another bit of Christmas amusement, on 19th St near the Sanchez Steps.
I was trying to figure out what this cool blue grass was, so I had to take a closer look and feel it. It’s Festuca aquaria glauca (my botanical name for blue plastic aquarium grass). 🙂
“Urbanite” is what they call it when you make building blocks from broken-up concrete. Nicely done wall of it on 20th St.
Macro of cork oak bark on 20th St.
Another shot of the cork oak on 20th.
Tripping me out! This is a mushroom growing in the garden of my client by Sutro Forest. I thought is was a melted plastic trick-or-treat jack-o-lantern until I tried to pick it up.
Full shot of that fungus.
Aloes on Cumberland St.
More Cumberland aloes.
Beautiful! Love the color of the blooms on this aloe.
Tea tree blooms on Sanchez, between Cumberland and 20th.
Spotted this cool feature. The header across the top of the gate is actually a birdhouse. Holes at both ends. Just off the 20th St steps at Sanchez.
