Nice winding nature place to walk. Lots of people there to enjoy it.
Met Maya and her mother and David gardener ( photographer).
It was a nice day.
The garden needs an architect, Japanese masterful gardener, maybe a dozen of them.
It really needs a lot of work.
The ponds are very stagnant.
The growth is gone wild and there's too much.
I don't know how they'll manage to
Get it looking cultivated.
But I hope they do.
I think Kiku would make a very nice contribution.
Maybe some philanthropist will do any funds to get this garden looking like a real Japanese garden.
What a treasure that would be.
A Kiku greenhouse maybe?
I'd work there.
This year coming up we'll
Have Kiku once again.
Kings mums sold their business in Oregon to Brian in Tulsa. So next year I can order Kiku starts again.
Still no greenhouse here to grow them in. They're delicate. I manage even though it's cool here for them to grow outdoors. But if I could do some work in a greenhouse I think I'd get an interesting result. The advantage here is blooms last much longer. The problem is getting enough nutrition in them and water for them to grow large and fast.
I love to find them pushing out of the ground, all dirty, and shrugging off their earthiness..such power and determination..
Below is the Chicken of the Woods, found at Rialto Beach one year. It had to be more than 50 lbs of mushroom, in perfect fresh condition. I didn't know then that it was edible. I may go looking for it again.
