A spirited argument with myself was won by the Garden Visitor , lost by the Garden Worker. But it's ok, the Garden Visitor was home by noon , and the Garden Worker had the opportunity to prune more roses, cut back lavenders and grasses , and watch the bees on the Rosemary.
The destination was UC Berkley Botanical Garden , an easy commute at 8am on a Sunday . Distracted..snapping photos, looking at the tags, "I'll remember that name"..right? Wrong.
So.. Hedgehog Agave ?
Agave vilmoriniana -' Octopus Agave'..took a photo of the label.
Aloes in bloom. The camera was smokin...
I love the Restios, and have been plotting away to introduce them into my small garden.
