Besotted by the Bancroft

I don't seem to tire of endlessly reviewing photos from the last visit to this garden, and plotting the next. What a gem, how lucky to have it so close.

  1. Who could grow tired of such photos? And you captured the dyckias in bloom! I think you really need to pop over again to RB for the July 16 speaker event, including your Deborah from Digging Dog. There's a young designer speaking too that Mitch has done some work with. If only it were a couple hours closer!

  2. What a wonderful place! Your photographs, in this post and others, are great! Inspiring. Thank you for the comment on my blog. L&L sold their old place and moved to the house next door. Someone got so lucky to get their place, garden and the pieces of their garden art which were the part of the deal. Happy gardening and happy blogging to you!

  5. Inspiring photos, especially to those of us who are zonally challenged by such lush xeriscaping. Is that Agave parryii (var. truncata?) in the fourth image down. Fabulous!

  6. Indeed yes MulchMaid, Agave Parryii, but unsure as to the var.The garden is tagged , but typically they use those little aluminum hangy-things that you etch , and some ground-crawling is often necessary to read them.

  7. That looks to be one beautiful place I need to visit. I've never been. And you show me what I'm missing!
