But it was a wonderful day. 3 friends, one big-ass SUV . Two nurseries later, everyone except the driver has a flat of plants in her lap, and the car looks like a moving jungle. I even think I may have gotten a little bit of a tan! Woo hoo!

just when you thought it was safe....

.....i stopped at Ravenna Gardens on the way home from dinner with gymgeek and axl and found a wicked cool plant that I just had to have, because I'd never seen it before. It's a Aeonium "Black Rose" and looks kind of like this.

I think I'm going to let it be inside for a while, on the piano (where it gets full sun) until it gets a little warmer outside...
