Paghat’s Garden

April 23rd, 2004 · No Comments

Also via Anita Rowland, I am enjoying a wonderful Northwest garden resource, filled with pages of photos and history describing the plants in the region. For example I had no idea that that pesky Scotch Broom was planted here intentionally

A half-century ago when new highways then freeways were being carved up & down the coast, Scotch Broom was planted all along the roads because the plant was cheap & the extensive root systems kept the clear-cut mud-hills from washing back onto the freeways.

I love the photos and stories…I could spend hours alone looking at all the bulbs (a favorite of mine!)…what a rich resource!
