After a long unplanned blogging hiatus, it seems appropriate that I return with tales of where I’ve been. Mostly that would be in my desk chair – as my own boss, turns out I’m a slave driver. But that’s no fun. So let’s talk travel.
I took a real-deal two week long vacation for the first time in, good lord, 9 years. Southern California – I tell you. All the plants we empty our wallets for here in Portland, all the care we take shuttling plants in and out of the house during our extended wet winters? This killed me: in Southern California those plants are just everywhere, no biggie. In the good way, sure. But also in the liquor store parking lot way. Just wherever.
But you guys understand. So I will show you the lonely roadside plants that deserved a little appreciation. Sadly, roadside plants are rarely accompanied by labels, so most are a mystery to me.
And, may I remind you, this was just the stuff on the roadside, not to mention all the amazing real gardens. But this is what you get when you live somewhere you can find monsters like this at the nursery for $50.
