Exquisite isn't it?
I have pretty eclectic taste in plants and I often tend to steer toward the muted and understated. I think because you have to look a little closer to see the beauty.
The pitchers are coming on strong with the heat.
Darlingtonia californica, forever and always my favorite native plant.
I have missed a few golden opportunities in my life. I often get told as a result that something better is coming along. So I guess it kind of harkens back on the title of this post. I feel like I might have missed a golden one this past week. I guess I should have been more positive, but then again you can put lipstick on a pig right and it doesn't become Audrey Hepburn. No, you gotta call it what it is and you trust people to see potential. I guess it's lack of vision that has always bothered me the most. I'm a dreamer and a schemer and I get shit done. When I bought the run down old farmhouse and decrepit Cherry orchard that was turned into Illahe Nursery and Gardens I got nothing but negative energy from the people with no vision. Ten years gone and people stop along the side of the road to stare.......you gotta have vision to see that the negatives can become positive.
75 and sunny a light breeze....doesn't get much better than this.
