So Long San Francisco

We left town last Sunday and have been on a whirlwind road trip to Big Sur, the Central Coast, Santa Barbara, Yosemite and now South Lake Tahoe. In a couple hours we’ll be leaving the beautiful state of California for a day long drive through Nevada, on to Moab, UT and then Summit County & Denver Colorado, before making it back to Wisconsin. Here are a few pics of the remaining plants of our old garden right before we left  just for the heck of it (I’m being a bit of a roadtrip photo uploading/labeling slacker right now).

Papaver commutatum 'Ladybird'

All the broken surfboards are on their way to Wisconsin :) We’re thinking of going with a beach theme for the new nursery.

Pipevine Swallowtail caterpillars

So my caterpillar babies didn’t make it to this size, but wonderful Tim brought over a bunch we released on our vine about a week before we left. I must have spent hours watching them eat away on the pipevine.

Calceolaria integrifolia 'Kentish Hero'

Papaver hybridum 'Black Swan'

Eccremocarpus scaber 'Tresco Gold'

Cerinthe major purpurascens
