This one feels like summer, like it’s hot. Actually it’s spring here, which includes all the wind we get this time of year. Going to the East Bay today, to Berkeley Horticultural Nursery, and to visit some friends. Hoping to come home with a few perennials to tuck in here and there. The ornamental part of our garden isn’t very well planned. This shows up most in the winter with large patches of bare dirt, in part because I plant so many annuals. The fruit and veggie department is my husband’s. He’s got espaliered fruit trees, raspberries, blueberries and strawberries well placed. His eggplant, tomatoes and peppers benefit from having a Cedar tree removed a few years ago. It’s much more cohesive than my flowers, but it’s fun to mess around and try new things.

Just for the fun of it, here’s a couple of photos from yesterday. I wanted to photograph the bouquet, with the craspedia globosa. The painting is Max Lesser’s. He’s a very accomplished artist, and you can see his work for another week at Toby’s Gallery in Pt. Reyes Station. The scale of the bouquet was overwhelmed by the painting, but it’s such a fine painting that I made two separate photos.
