Here are a few photos from my Flickr photo set entitled
“Filbert Steps, San Francisco (May 2006)“.
(This one if for patchoullijulie)
This morning, my coworker Ed invited me to go with him up the Filbert Steps on Telegraph Hill (San Francisco), which is just 2 blocks away from my work. So at lunchtime, we started our trek, well equiped with our cameras.
I was amazed at the beauty of the gardens along the steps. (Am I sounding gay here?)The homeowners there must have buku bucks, because those propeties have such a lovely view.
We eventually ended up at the Coit Tower atop Telegraph Hill. I didn’t realize how close Coit Tower is to my work.

Hi Gardening Friends :) I have so much to post, but I’m so sleepy so I’m just going to share two photos of some Japanese Anemone seeds I found. Don’t they look like white strawberries?
These were found next to the KGO-TV building in San Francisco and were ready to be blown away. I’m planning to see if they will grow in the spring.
I’ll write more from work tomorrow.
For Christmas, one of my best friends, Michael, gave me Tulips in this cool little pot. The Tulips are emerging and now about 1 inch tall.
I found this near the area where I found the seedling from a few day ago. I think they are Pine Nuts. Can anyone confirm? I planted them and we’ll see if they grow.
My co-worker’s Zygocactus is dropping its leaves. She was going to throw the broken pieces away, so I yelled “NO!!!”… and she gave it to me. Yet another propagation project.
After work, I passed by Target and saw these Terra Cotta Pots that I thought were cool. They are different than your standard Terra Cotta Pot. They measure 4 inch wide by 3.5 inch tall and cost 79 cents each. (3 cents more than all 600 bulbs my brother got yesterday)
As I was taking a break from work, I went to check if Mr. Dandelion was still under the tree on the sidewalk on The Embarcadero (San Francisco). I was surprised to see the seedling below. I’m not sure what it is, but it looks like a pine tree seedling.
Mr. Dandelion was gone, by the way.
I then thought, if the landscaper were to see it, they would just pull it out like a weed… so I pulled it up as carefully as I could, to plant in a pot. I kinda snapped the root, so I’m not sure if it’ll make it, but I guess we’ll see…
As I was taking a break at work. I noticed this this spent Dandelion flower under a tree on the sidewalk (The Embarcadero/Levi’s Plaza Park, San Francisco). Luckily, I was carrying my camera and I snapped up this photo:
I then noticed more weeds.
Anyone know what these two weeds are?
Right before writing this entry, I responded to
While I was on break, I noticed 3 earthworms stuck in a puddle of water on the street. Lifting them with a pine needle, I safely returned them to the grass where they should be… There’s my good deed for the day… now back to being mean and nasty!
As I was walking with some co-workers to Taco Bell for lunch, I saw an Ornamental Grass on the corner of Drumm and Washington in San Francisco with seeds ready to pop out. They were calling out, “Joey, take me… take me home!!!”… so I did. I’m not sure what variety it is, but I took a photo of the plant if anyone can figure out what it is. I’ll try to plant these in the spring and see what come out.
When I got home, I remembered other seeds I collected in the summer.
