Hi Chris,

As always, lovely work. One more beautiful than the last, and so informative. When you were in Sonoma County, did you visit Luther Burbank's home and gardens? He is a native son to Santa Rosa, I believe. He felt that the climate there was the best on the planet, and I think I agree.

Happy warm weather,

Thanks everyone for the comments.
Sara, hi, I didn't get the Burbank garden when I visited Sonoma. We did go to Quarryhill Botanical Gardens which has a collection of Asian plants. It was beautiful and I would recommend it.
