Gardens in the Hood

 

Aloe and Bougainvillea

Aloe and Bougainvillea

 

We were wondering around our Outer Sunset neighborhood earlier this week down some blocks we really don’t travel down.  It’s always fun to come across some front gardens we haven’t seen before like this huge Aloe arborescens with the Bougainvillea as a back drop. The Aloe is huge..I would estimate about 8 feet tall and 12 feet wide.  Man…how long has this guy been growing?  Cactus Blog has one showing the flower spikes.

Cool little eclectic garden complete with Jade Plant and a repurposed birdcage.

Pretty sure these are Aloe nobilis, aka Gold Tooth Aloe.  Can anybody confirm?

This one looks like it has all the work horse we come to love in our hood.

This Norfolk Island Pine (Araucaria heterophylla) is one of my top fave 5 trees.  This guy isn’t as big as my favorite one in Golden Gate Park…but just as cool.

We are back to Treasure Island for day two of the music festival.  We will be at Workshop again helping with DIY Terrariums.  We saw our blogger friend, Jennifer, yesterday…great to see you.  Hey, swing by if you are around.
