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.
It looks like the Euphorbia and the poppy are one freaky plant in this picture.
It’s a mini park! There was a cute little city sign declaring it so.
Lots of funky stuff going around in these beds.
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.
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.
