After all of the emotional upset surrounding the destruction of the Arcadia Woodland – and I just read in an email that kids at a school near the former woodland were extremely upset because they could hear the noise of the huge trucks breaking down and pulling out the trees – it is good to get back into my own backyard. More to come on protecting what’s left in southern California and what we can learn from this horrible experience.
Anyway, tomorrow is Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day but I probably won’t have time to post on Saturday because I will be teaching a class at Theodore Payne Foundation. The class is called Keeping ’em goin’ – how to care for your newly planted natives, and as always the powerpoint will be posted with a plant list next week.
Back to the garden. It feels like spring. The sun is shining, it is warm and things are really starting to pop. The manzanitas are in bloom, the toyons are still full of berries, and I harvested a tree full of Meyer’s lemons.
