“That's the whole point of good propaganda. You want to create a slogan that nobody's going to be against, and everybody's going to be for. Nobody knows what it means, because it doesn't mean anything.”
― Noam Chomsky

Like the colors and the simplicity. Not quite Japanese but some elements there.

forage

directly from the vine, i gently place the best ones--the soft ones, the ones that yield to the lightest touch--upon your tongue.




[rubus ursinus from the sidewalk cafe. good thing i took a photo, as all other evidence is already long gone.]

I wish! We do have a farmer's market that we visit each Saturday, and right now they have these lovelies so we get 'em there, though. :-)

+Dawn Diamantopoulos, as i have the utmost respect for your abstract outdoorsness, i truly appreciate your comment on mine.

+shankti oviedo, my brother, you always know what i'm talking about. it was a mystical day and moment by the creek by the lake. this is exactly what everything around me looked like. there was the scent of honeysuckle, and three baby swallows at the edge of their nest, mouths wide. a sign that said rough trail. a girl hesitating, then leaping from a rock--splash.

heady

i'm starting to compile my list of california native plants that would work as a scent garden. i travel by my nose.

so far ...
chamaebatia australis
ceanothus velutinus
satureja douglasii
artemisia tridentata
salvia clevelandii
artemisia douglasiana
calycanthus occidentalis
trichostema lanatum
philadelphus lewisii
salvia spathacea
umbellularia californica

the resin on the ceanothus velutinus leaves is unlike anything you've ever smelled.
