Thank you, In the Parks and Fishbulb, for the updates that let this Northern Californian get his "fix". I was especially interested by the Town Square flower bed picture in today's update.
I don't remember seeing grass in this bed before. Don't they usually use that other plant -- not sure
what the name of it is, but it's a low, creeping, brighter green stuff (kind of a "baby's tears" look) Anyway, the red celosia is great, but somehow the overall effect of this particular planter leaves me wanting more.
I guess it just doesn't have the same clean, super-fresh look as all the other areas I notice. Maybe it's because the white alyssum is looking a little tired? And there's plain old dirt showing! (usually, any soil inbetween plants is that wonderful rich, just turned, dark-chocolatey color) And couldn't the grass be a little greener? LOL
I hate to be critical, as the landscaping is truly one of my favorite elements of the Park, and the gardeners deserve major kudos.
