thats a bold and beautiful planter! I am so jealous as we are expecting 18 inches of snow tomorrow here.

I think you are convincing me I need to move, as if I didn't already know that.

Is that campanula?

Thanks Kim for the better link to the photo, still haven't been able to figure out how to do that! No Campanula in that photo, the low grower in the foreground is Lobularia maritima, or Sweet Alysum, the pastel color cultivar.

Are you up in the Berkeley hills? I used to live near the campus and go walking up in those hills...near the "steps" and the rose garden. Lovely!

The photo of this garden is located in the Thousand Oaks north Berkeley neighborhood, near the boundary with Kensington, so not really anywhere near the Berkeley campus. Also, it isn't my garden, I could never afford to live in this neighborhood, I'm down in the flats...

Here's a link to more photos of this same garden, warning, there are lots of photos... I am hopeful that the real estate market will improve locally, and I'll have more opportunities to do complex gardens with lots of structure and plantings in the future. These days, it is mostly just smaller planting jobs rather than complete garden makeovers, as this garden was...

What a great thing to see on a very over cast, rainy stormy day. Though it is finally warm.
