It's been slim pickins for whoreticulture visitors since I started me new job.
I worked the sale at the Botanical Garden this morning...last one of the year...so I got to be outside during the daylight for a change. Here are some random pictures. I have guests coming over for drinks and dinner in 15 minutes. No time to tell a story.
Remind me to tell you the story of those stones.
This is what I look like, btw. In the dark with no flash taking my own picture. I must have been drunk. (Psst! I often am!)
Who says we don't have fall color in California?
We offerred these Hedychium for four dollars. They're ten feet tall. White flowers, very fragrant. I work in natives, so I don't know the species name. No one bought any of them until the last five minutes, and then one woman bought all of them. Can you tell they're ten feet tall? I don't know where they were hiding in the nursery; I've never seen them before today.
Some Pacific Coast Iris hybrid. Noone bought this for an hour. An hour! What kind of person walks by this plant...making free plants!...and doesn't buy it? That '8' you see is the price. $8! People! When you see something like that, you buy it! Okay? You buy it. I took this picture before the sale.
I didn't mean to upload this picture, but here it is anyway.
Eriogonum arborescens w/ Epilobium canum. I love it.
Okay, gotta go. Sorry it's been so lame here lately. More later!
Added: a few more pictures.
(whoops... I didn't notice the coupler in there.)
The Gunnera go down for the winter.

I'm off on a roadtrip, between rainstorms.
