This is a bouquet that keeps on giving. This pretty little red plant is growing from a bouquet my love gave me. When I have cut flowers, I let them linger on past what some would call pretty and hope for seeds or sprouts. I change the water just as if they looked alive (because they are). I got really lucky with this species that I haven’t been able to identify. Hopefully I’ll get more from the bouquet in the background too.
Can anyone tell me what kind of plant this is?
Our hike this morning took us through the Presidio and down to Baker beach. I snapped a few pictures as we made our way down the trail to the beach at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge. Here’s how long it took for the fog to roll in.
Looks to be a bright sunny day, right?
10:10 am – There she is! We had to get pretty close to see it.
It took 18 minutes for Karl the Fog to swallow the bridge. Well, there it is. Now we see how 20 minutes can change your whole day in San Francisco. What? That’s not fog? Happy 4.20 =)
Come join us for our walk! I didn’t have my Nikon, but I did my best with my iPhone6Plus to get some pretty views to share. Here they are:
We took our walk down 1,000 Steps, including The Sand Ladder, to Baker Beach after the rain.
We ran into so many interesting characters along the way. But we didn’t visit this lizard too long as he still seems peeved about that whole tail thing.
There were flowers blooming EVERYWHERE!
So many colors
Bright and cheerful
Make sure you fall in love with someone who doodles your initials.
Sand art inspired by the view
It was low tides and we got to see so many little squirts
Close up of close together
They gathered in the cracks
Some where big
Some where bigger
Interesting angles exposed by low tide
And on the way back, more amazing flowers
Dramatic in shapes
Dramatic in colors
If you love flowers and views this walk might be for you
Unless you aren’t a fan of stairs. That’s why we took pictures for you!
So many beautiful things to look at
Tiny dew drops sticking to flowers
More water drops caught in a web
Drop on by 1,000 Steps
And say ‘hi’ to one of the bigger friends on the path.
Just be careful not to step on this little buddy
Is this my good side?
Or this side? Thanks for joining us on our walk. See you next time!
I moved a few little seedlings and clippings into their new neighborhoods today. These little babies are tiny; they’re currently living in sauce cups. But they will grow and I will help them move on then too. They are rather like hermit crabs moving from home to home. Meanwhile, they’ll decorate this antique dresser quite nicely.
The plants are: Kalanchoe, Echeveria, Dietes grandiflora (fairy iris), and Asplenium bulbiferum (mother fern)
I was lucky enough to receive an antique side table. This beautiful little table came to my workshop in pieces.
The price tag was still on it. It was $0.89 new!
Just a little glue,
olive oil, vinegar, and love
brought her back to life.
Yesterday Morning Looked Like This
Now It Looks Like This
There you have it. See what you’re missing Arizona? 😉
I made it down to the Women’s March in San Francisco just in time to take a few pictures with my iPhone6Plus. The energy was positive and the rain only made it more beautiful!
We ran into some very curious coyotes in the Marin Headlands today. What a beautiful holiday gift from Mother Earth.
