These are a few of my growing things, some of them came from seeds, and some have struggled, but recently come alive in leaps and bounds. The Japanese Maple is from two lovely women who are moving from Mt. Tam to Florida, Ms. Phyllis and Ms. Andrea. They lovingly gave me this tree, which I promtly killed... or so i thought. You see, maple trees are deciduous - a fact ridiculously forgotten by me, after being away from the changing of seasons now for six years - so they shed their leaves this winter and regrew to this very full bloom come April. I gather that with all the rain they have had much reason to rejoice as these leaves grew from bud in just a short month! I love this tree! I now have 25 plants and three cactii, having started with only three plants in a TINY studio. This has been one of my greatest accomplishments in San Francisco. God bless the plants.
DE YOUNG the art & craft led day of refinement brass miniatures set to fire ease over to copper twisted twigs in the equestrian way blue pools livid like the see ancient masks staring forebodingly down at me in observation about the trees a falcon flown to perch run off by a black night protector of home and hearth absorbing the abundance of woven feathers & linen wooden rockers & leather glass blown and cut hung like raindrops from the emptiness which fills in the ceiling human skulls linger in my soup and my camera refuses to capture any part of me, so be it i am of it i am in it don't you see my reflection in this glass case? that window fernway? de young like the lover of all the natural things shaped by man it's the continuos path to enlightenment or destruction who can tell? walk along.
