However imperfect, this dogwood flower is inherently beautiful. It's a reminder for me to look for the beauty in each person I meet.

My rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) has made it through another winter and our year-round resident Anna's hummingbird has been a daily visitor.

I'm not sure we've broken 65°F since last October and the ground is sopping wet, but spring soldiers on despite a slow start.

“Let me keep my distance, always, from those 
who think they have the answers.

Let me keep company always with those who say "Look!" and laugh in astonishment, 
and bow their heads.” ― Mary Oliver, Evidence: Poems

“If we want to use forests as a weapon in the fight against climate change, then we must allow them to grow old, which is exactly what large conservation groups are asking us to do.”

Our native red-flowering currant, Ribes sanguineum, is a real beauty and beloved by hummingbirds and flutterbys for early spring nectar, and numerous other creatures for its berries. And it's drought tolerant and disease/pest resistant. Who wouldn't want this lovely in their landscape?

“You have to go to the places that scare you so that you can see: What do you really believe? Who are you really? Are you prepared to take this all the way to wherever the truth leads you and accept that you have to figure out different ways of confronting reality?”
