Far Out Flora

Creatures of the Day


Here’s a funky little garden off Lincoln and FUNston.  The babbling brook grabbed my attention first, but the garden art is what sold me.

Art in the Garden

Hum, I would entitle this one, "Oil you up my lady?"

The house faces north on a busy street, complete with white picket fence.  The one thing that keeps bothering me, “With all that mulch, couldn’t they hide the fountain’s black power cord a little better?”Art in the Garden

After spending time enjoying the curiousities, I feel the need to find some more odd objects for our garden.

Time to send in the clowns.

Hum…I’m not sure what’s funnier…the Outsider Art approach to garden design…or the next door neighbor’s garden.

Asparagus Fern - Asparagus densiflorus

…because they planted 12 Asparagus Ferns (Asparagus densiflorus) on a grid.  I know these guys aren’t cheap…so there must be a story behind this one too.

  1. OMG!!!!!! They are both total WWTT gardens. Nice find!

  2. Ohhh weeee! Nasty-ness in the garden! Love it!

  3. When I run across gardens like this one, I’m really tempted to leave another small piece of “art” and see if it gets noticed by the owners.

  4. Trying to envision the asparagus peeps vision.. Maybe they need about 20 more, no weeds and a really cool, dense contrasting groundcover-Ajuaga ‘chocolate chip’ ? I can see it !

  5. Love the funky little garden. Also makes me want to get some little garden art.

  6. Great find. Funny! Actually turns me off garden art… I’ll stick to boring terracotta pots.

  7. I love little gems like this. I’m feeling amiss that I never came across this ones in my on-foot wanderings (after all, that’s not to far from the SF Botanical Gardens). Have you seen the adjacent crazy hodge-podge gardens in the same spirit over by Trader Joes on Masonic?
