We are finally getting much-needed rain in the San Francisco Bay Area and all I can think of is gardening. I’ve been searching through photos of gardens to find ones that inspire me. Here are some of the photos I’ve found:

Tropical Garden: Island City House, Key West, FL

Roof Top Succulent Garden

English Cottage Garden

Wonderful World of Plants Sunday, Nov 28 2010 

I came across this great local San Francisco nursery, Flora Grubb Gardens: http://floragrubb.com/idx/index.php, 1634 Jerrold Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94124; 415.626.7256. You will find inspiration for your gardening needs and great gift ideas for the plant lovers in your life at Flora Grubb Gardens. I especially like the succulent wreaths and the forest floor ornaments with a Tillandsia plant inside.
