Awesome April Bloom Day

Eschscholzia californica ‘Red Chief’

Happy Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day for the very last time from San Francisco. Thanks to everyone who came out for the big sale yesterday! It exceeded all our expectations so much so that we just added Monterey, Morro Bay and Santa Barbara as road trip stop overs on our way back to Wisconsin. We’re excited for one last garden hurrah down the coast before we go and my dream of visiting Lotusland is going to come true! The California native middle section is really rocking it out right now.

Our Erysimum franciscanum var. crassifolium (big yellow San Francisco Wallflower) is still going strong.

Sisyrinchium bellum ‘North Coast’

The blooms on this Sisyrinchium are ginormous!!! They’re even more purple-blue in real life, as this pic is pretty blown out.

Brugmansia sanguinea & the bee

I’ve been thinking about chopping off a chunk of this guy to bring back to Wisconsin. Sounds like  it’s easy to root in water and will do just fine in the summer.  We’ll just have to throw it in the basement every winter for a little nap.

Happy Bloom Day!
