Originally, I meant to place all the posts that have to do with nature in the city on a separate page, but since this seems to be all I want to write about on this blog, it felt redundant. So, I made a cool image matrix instead. Some, but not all, images have pop-up captions.

My favorite image of the many I’ve taken of my front garden courtyard, the only as seen in my son’s eye. He also wears glasses.
Texas Sage exploded overnight. A gorgeous plant that usually is mal-pruned, so no one gets to see its blooms.

The grape vine as a clean plate.
The Tranquility Tree I’ve pruned to cascade over the courtyard entry went nuts with its tiny yellow flowers this season. Best blooms to date.

“Why are there trees I never walk under But large and melodious thoughts descend upon me?” Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
And, yes, I can hear the theme song to Love Story playing faintly in my head right now.

pink crisp apple seedlings by my cluttered kitchen window sill
orange tree in the back with resident wildlife

The blooms up close.
