... the center for urban horticulture

you are here

every season is a good season to visit the center for urban horticulture, but late summer is particularly lovely. and it's such a hidden gem--it seems that even long-time seattleites don't know that this place exists. what a shame. why aren't you here?

fading black eyed susans

you know the summer is coming to a close when the black-eyed susans are starting to fade.

dahlias

but the dahlias are still lovely, no?

grasses in the wind

and the tall grasses sound nice rustling in the breeze.

black and blue sage

the black and blue sage is also still going strong. this is one of my favorite perennials.

green grass

the grass is still green in the serviceberry grove.

long shadows

and the shadows are long.

red flower

this flower-that-looks-like-a-poppy-but-isn't-a-poppy-at-all catches the sun nicely.

tomatoes

and the sweet vegetable patch set in the middle of a field is churning out some pretty tomatoes. i would say they were tasty if i had sampled one, but that wouldn't be a nice thing to do, would it?

but let's just say hypothetically, it was pretty tasty.
