At least these plants will be okay in the California drought 0f 2014. We just finished the driest year on record, and there’s no rain in sight.  Look at these satellite photos to see how bad it is.

Ruth Bancroft Garden

For my birthday yesterday I went to the Ruth Bancroft Garden in Walnut Creek, CA. It was one of those gorgeous 70 degree January days that causes so many people to visit California and never leave. I like taking photos of plants so I can remember what they look like, and bring a little bit of that beauty home with me.
