Subtitle: Bad Pictures of Good Things
OK, I've been trying to get photos of these bizarre Groucho Marx heads for you guys for weeks now. But we're always going too fast over the West Seattle Bridge. Today I noticed that most of them are gone, and there's only one left, so I'll just show you what I've got so far.
Pictures from 4/17:
Picture from today:
Now back to the plants. Here are my beloved smoke trees back on 4/17. The blue oat grass has exploded since then.
Here's my Ceanothus on 4/17:
And the rest of the photos are from this evening.
Some books say you can cut the seedheads from your Helictotrichon sempervirens, but I would never do that.
My husband sometimes complains that it looks weedy, but I love this big fluffy fennel.
This Japanese maple was a birthday present from my stepmother-in-law. The Japanese maple is like the patron plant of Mid Beacon Hill. Virtually everyone has one. They're nice. I need to try to find a protected place for this guy. It may be a planter plant, to tell you the truth.
Another gift. Euphorbia. I like them. 2,160 species can't be wrong, right?
More gifts. Raspberries!
Some of the leaves aren't looking so hot, but the alliums themselves seem to be fine so far.
I've been really busy with all that birthday stuff, so I still haven't had a chance to plant this beautiful little Hebe yet. I know I am going to love it.
Ginkgo leaves. So sweet.
