my laissez-faire attitude toward plants -- both indoor & out -- means that what survives wants to.
but I still have greenness surrounding me which began elsewhere. & looking at such stems & branches brings back vivid memories.
as I type I can see a succulent from the Bodega Bay area where I went in 1994 to see where "The Birds" was shot. in my bedroom there's a plant which Billy cultivatd in Culver City from a starter he brought back from our trip to Catalina. also little plants I snippd from their parents at the Coral Sands in Hollywood & Beach Place in Ocean Beach. & on the sill of my kitchen window cactus from Aunt Mary's yard in Sun City.
when I left Kent I gave my huge nite-blooming cereus to Maggie Anderson but I did bring a piece crosscountry with me & it's in my bathroom (altho looking rather sickly at the moment).
& outside I try to hold onto several plantings from Winckles St. 3 rose of sharons which stay alive but never get as big as Dad's. & trumpet vine which my parents grew from a starter Aunt Sophie brought from Caledonia.
these living quotations from family & friends & travels bring me constant joy & comfort.
