Urban Garden

Urban gardens are more popular than ever, and our little patch of San Francisco exemplifies the trend. In the back yard, this great Masdevallia species has been blooming for 6 weeks. This flower has faded from its most brilliant, but it’s still a vivid pink. The next photos show a white calla lily and a mass of orange lilies, all enjoying our mild Mediterranean climate.

Fuchsias are a San Francisco standard, and these flowers buds are just peeking open. In the middle photo, delicate flowers interrupt the geometry in a pot of succulents. Bright yellow pollen in the center lights up the paper-thin petals. They’re all part of the action in our urban garden.
