Last weekend we hit up the SF Bromeliad Society’s super rad garden tour AND busted out the good old DSLR for the first time in almost a year. All the tour gardens were AMAZING!

The second garden we visited was by Armin Lindegger and Patrick Aaron. Love this vertical combo with the stags.
Zoe was a good little trooper as we (mostly Matti) carried her all over the upper Market Street neighborhood. Check out those beautiful tree ferns in the background!
The last garden we visited was Richard Wigen’s. I wish I had a hot tub across from a big pile of awesome potted plants. Check out the trunk on that Aloe plicatilis!
Can anyone confirm the ID on this guy about to burst with blooms? Looks like Muschia wollastonii to me.
Kniphofia, Verbena bonariensis, a ginormo Aloe plicatilis plus a bunch of other good stuff makes a gorgeous path. Zoe turned in to a pumpkin by the time the potluck started, so we missed out on the very last garden. It’s great to be back in California, surrounded by crazy awesome gardens filled with plants that most of the country can only grow as annuals or houseplants. Check out this link for all the sweet pics we took during the trip.
