And I am already starting to fantasize about a garden somewhere temperate where everything grows! Everything! And what would look good with the existing plantings, which include fairly massive jade plants and tons of azaleas. It should be interesting, I have epic plant lists and a preemptive shopping trip to both the local Farmer's Market and the Santa Cruz Arboretum on my To-Do list. And the first thing I am going to do is plant tomatoes! In February! I am SO excited.
But seriously. These jade plants are like trees. You never see jade with other plants, you see it indoors, in a pot. Or tiny ones in with a bunch of succulents on top of a table. For "interest". Maybe I need some tropical-looking stuff or something. With the azaleas.Yeah. And I am incredibly sad for all of the cymbidium orchids that used to be there. She couldn't take care of them so she gave them away. So sad.
