What I had for lunch: carne asada burrito with salsa verde. Thank you La Estrella for having the foresight and wisdom to park a few blocks from my house.
More enchanting blossoms have opened up in the garden. Freesia.
I just heard flowers described as the reproductive organs of plants. Which made me think about plant sex. Pollination porn! It's all happening right here. Right now. In LA. All of our winter rain has kicked everything up a notch.
The birds, bees, moths, and bats must be full of punch drunk love.
Lavender. A flower that keeps her wits about her. Saving all that scent for her leaves instead. I think I would like my entire front yard to be a lavender field. No, I'm serious.
Here lies a splendid aeonium with no fragrance at all. Who doesn't need at least one enormous green rose in their garden? With waxy petaled leaves tinged with pink. Yes please. And thank you.
