A long walk, Part IV

Maybe I should title this series something better than "A long walk". "A long walk" does not sound like fun. I want a name that says more about what this series means to me while I'm preparing it. Something that has very much to do with 'San Francisco'.

At the three-way fork in the road, I pick the middle path.

That doesn't mean anything tho'.

Concerned about safety?

Lavatera.

Pelargonium tomentosum, my favorite Pelargonium.

I have to take a leaf with me. The smell is out of sight.

A smell that's out of sight. Ugh!

I like this secret door.

I thought this was a fork in the road, and I picked the upper fork.

But it wasn't a fork in the road, it was the walkway to someone's front door.

The meaningness of the middle fork in the road, coupled with any falsity of the middle fork, also doesn't mean anything.

A native plant, with Port-A-Potties. That also doesn't mean anything.

Is this neighborhood safe?

San Francisco has Crime Maps online. You can go to the SFPD website and click your way through to crime reports for very specific areas in San Francisco. We've done it a few times. Several car break-ins reported where we live over the course of a few months. Only a few assaults, and they were all reported in at 3 a.m. Who's walking around at 3 a.m.? Probably people breaking in to cars.

Should I have better things to think about?

What is the tree with the blue blooms (behind the picket fence)? It is gorgeous!

I believe it's Solanum rantonnettii (formerly Lycianthes rantonnettii), but I'm not 100%.
