Ode to the Garden at 1443 Josephine Street

It is with much sadness that I leave this small but lovely garden. I have tried to create a garden packed with flowers that delights the passerby as well as my family. The flowers invite butterflies, honeybees and hummingbirds, and these pollinators animate the plants with their activity. I have included a diagram of the plants that I have planted and identified in the garden and also a spreadsheet with the names and their locations. We have also included a diagram of the automatic watering system. The watering system takes care of almost all the watering needs of the garden except in very warm weather, which is rare in Berkeley.
