On Saturday, we boarded a double decker bus that dropped us off in Leucadia.
Bought a ticket, strapped on a green wristband and headed out with a detailed map.
We walked down Caudor Street and Capri Road and Sunrich Lane.
Houses were marked from A to T.
We viewed all 20, but in our own particular order as I think we started at H.
Meandered into backyards to check out the plants and swimming pools and even a goat. Chatted with some of the homeowners. Took two hundred pictures by the end of the day.
It was all part of the Encinitas Garden Festival and Tour.
Having attended a few other home and/or garden tours in San Diego over the years, I can tell you that there is a drastic increase in popularity for chickens, vegetable gardens, drought-tolerant plants and detached workshops, at least in Leucadia.
Have you ever wanted to peek over a fence?
Open a side gate?
See how others landscape their backyard?
