Close Enough

The longer I live in town, the more I appreciate native plants. The Great Big Hiking Co-op's urban forest is an island of tranquility in the middle of the South Lake Union boomtown. The Burke Museum on the UW campus has a teaching garden of native varieties.

A few imported plants resemble natives closely enough to suit my purposes on this small lot. Rhubarb, the species Japanese anemone, Shasta daisy "Alaska", carrots gone to seed, leggy boxwood in deep shade all suggest local woods without requiring feats of acquisition -30-
