Some More Sunnyside Stuff

Suculents in Sunnyside

After our visit to Sunnyside Conservatory last week, we kept walking up the back stairway through more gardens and around the neighborhood. Hurray for lots of succulents! It’s hard not to run in to succulents in SF.

Euphorbia and friends

It looks like the Euphorbia and the poppy are one freaky plant in this picture.

More Euphorbias and friends

It’s a mini park! There was a cute little city sign declaring it so.

A little bit of everything

Lots of funky stuff going around in these beds.

Mega Jade

Jade Plant (Crassula ovata) growing big. I like it when it’s taller than me. We have a couple big pots of it out back that I like to “bonsai” (hack at). Crassula gollum is cooler, but tends doesn’t seem to grow as fast.

Purple hopseed seed pods

The purple hopseed bush (Dodonaea viscosa ‘Purpurea’) is looking hoppy. I never noticed these funky seed pods last summer, but I didn’t know what a purple hopseed bush was either.
