Nice Sequim xeriscape garden

First of all Fronderosa was a hit.  We did really well, and it was a lot of fun, so thank you!

Secondly of all, if you bought an Osteospermum baberiae from me at Fronderosa and it died, let me know.

I’ve got an increasing number of pictures of gardens and plants I like in the Sequim and Port Angeles area.  (I need to get over to Port Townsend more and check out the gardens over there.)  Here’s a Sequim garden that is particularly appealing.  These plant combinations look superb, and this garden must use very little water.  Perhaps I’ll have the privilege of meeting the owners sometime.

Gigantic Seattle manzanitas

Ron Brightman showed me this huge specimen of Arctostaphylos manzanita in a Seattle garden years ago.  Now it is even bigger.  It must be 18 feet tall and 30 feet wide!

I also found this rather large plant (perhaps 11′ tall) that appears to be A. columbiana in North Seattle.  One wonders if it is a preserved native plant, or was planted.

While we’re at it here’s an impressive interior live oak (Quercus wislizenii) in north Seattle.  It’s not common, but it obviously does great here.
