Stanford Hospital puts a lot of effort into its landscaping. For example, on my first day at work, back in July, I ate lunch outside by the front entrance fountain. Here was my view:
And this was to my left:
Almost like being on vacation at a resort, right?
Ha. That was the last time that I was able to eat lunch outside. Oh well.
There is also a nice roof deck on the new hospital, that, if I had time to take a break, I would enjoy.
They’ve planted it up with pretty mature plants, considering that the new hospital opened just a little over 6 months ago.
The photo below is a close-up of the leaves of my favorite plant in the roof garden (it’s also the dark tree/shrub on the left side of the photo above)
I can’t figure out what it is. Maybe a tri-color beech? I don’t think that’s right, but that’s the closest thing I could come up with. Does anyone know?
