The gardens and courtyards at the Mission San Diego were absolutely lovely. I love Boston ferns, and have killed more than my share. Just look at this one, outside, in January!
Beautiful colors of pink hanging overhead on the rafters.
I have also done in many jade plants......this one has a trunk the size of my arm and is also outside.
The walls and fences are perfect backgrounds for the shrubs and overhanging plants.
And I love these orange pokers (I don't know what they are really called) against the simple stark white of the mission buildings.
