Coast Trip # 2: Mendocino Botanical Gardens

Another over-the-top great garden visit on my recent trip with friend Wendy was to the Mendocino Botanical Gardens in Fort Bragg. Tony and I were there once five years ago or so; and I believe there's a new gardener weaving his magic there. Go, if you possibly can.

Up the Coast I: Digging Dog Nursery

Photos cannot possibly do justice to the experience of visiting this fabulous nursery (display gardens, really) on the coast above Albion. Only open by appointment, except for a couple Open Weekend events a year. Really lovely.

And featuring lots of varieties of Kniphofia, (or Red Hot Pokers, or torch lilies), which I've recently taken an interest in...
