Planted in July of 2009, this entry garden on Vicksburg Street in Noe Valley is starting its second season. I enjoy the cool richness of the Royal Purple smoke bush along with the lavender flowering Thyme.
One of my favorite street planting along 16th Street east of Market Street. I pass by here weekly on my way to the farmer's market, bank, coffee shop, bar,... It's so simple and the colors work so well.
Not far from the Women's Building on 18th Street in the Mission, here's a cute entry garden. The purple is intense and I'm sure it got one of their neighbor's panties in a tight wad. But it contrast the terra cotta pots and the green of the plants perfectly. I love the hanging watering can and the water stains on the side walk. Great eye for detail.
Am I tripping or does this look out of place in the middle of San Francisco? So tranquil and fairy tale like. The gates were ajar when we arrived, no joke. With Sutro Towers in the back ground you must know it's in the city. It's on top of a hill I don't know the name. It divides Eureka Valley from Noe Valley along 21st Street and Collingwood. Anyone know the name of this hill?
