Serialplantfetisist's Garden

I got to enjoy a lovely afternoon in my Flickr friend's, Serialplantfetishist (aka Mark Delphine's) garden in Berkeley the other day. Check out more shots of his garden and cute doggies here.

He is unbelievably lucky to have a triple lot to plant and he's got many garden rooms filled with wonderful specimen plants.

And his wife, Lia Cook, weaves the most amazing portrait tapestries. Check out her website here. So beautiful, I'd love to own one someday.

It was a lovely afternoon wandering around the garden and catching up with other plant geek friends!

  2. That is the best way to spend an afternoon. Mark has a wonderful garden that really takes advantage of everything the Bay Area can grow.

  3. Gorgeous garden - nice to see lots of plants that grow well in our similar climate here in Melbourne, Australia.
