After a decent rainy season, our Spring has been delightful. Somewhat regularly spaced winter storms gave us a small but decent amount of water. I'm not so sure about the snow pack. It's been a couple of years since our last garden tour in San Francisco. There's new things to see but more important it's a forum for ideas. These are professionally maintained gardens by us. We're the gardeners. It our tour.
Up first in Pacific Heights is Frank Eddy's garden. This is the 2nd season for the garden under his care and guidance. Blooming among the roses are linaria, pansies & digitalis, Lychnis coronaria and Aquilegia vulgaris hybrid.
The front entry garden is mostly white. With Iceburg roses stealing the show. Wow! In abundance. Underneath you'll see the poplar Omphalodes linifolia 'Venus's Navelwort' lighting up the base of the roses. It has such a delicate glauca rosette of leaves. And is reseeds nicely.
