    I have a "regular" okie and one from selfed seeds with location data. That one is SUPER colorful, really coppery. It's just starting to come out of its funk it had all year.

    And now for something a little different!

    I spent the weekend in San Francisco with hubby at thee California Grand Lodge Communication and Installation. Basically, it's the governing body of the California Free and Accepted Masons getting together to vote on things, and install the 2013 officers. It's interesting. I spent a LOT of time sketching and exploring yesterday, and the ladies all got together and saw "Beach Blanket Babylon". It's hilarious! I also managed to do a smidgen of shopping Saturday, and since the event was over after noon, Dory and I did more shopping today. I had just a little too much fun. I got a bunch of designer yarn, a knit/crochet/whatever tote, a nice, comfy crocheted afghan, a couple knitting patterns, and a pinwheel as tall as I am. I'm a sucker for these pinwheels.

    After the yarn shop visit, Dory and I were near Chinatown, where a festival was going on, full swing. We explored and shopped, and had lunch. Roast duck, yummy! Since the garage was at the top of Nob Hill, and we were near the bottom, we forked out the $6 each (yuck!) and took a cable car to the top. Those little rail cars are such a hoot to ride. I will be honest, the money goes into upkeep of the little cars, and is really, really worth it. We ought to go back and visit the museum and turnaround.

    The next time we go, we're leaving the car at home, and will just take the train. About an hour and a half, two hours will get us to the City, and then the yarn shop is not far from there. We can also go and play along the Embarcadero, which is impossible when saddled with a vehicle. Parking is miserable!

    Have a mess of random pictures:








    The yarn shop:



    Ever patient Dory, basking and dozing in the sun:




    More randomness. City Hall, a couple cable cars, a Chinese dragon and a couple lion heads, the festival, a raven saying "Hi!", a giant vertical mosaic inside the Masonic hall, plus more.




































    Whew!

    The new kitten is getting bigger, and more active. Here she is "checking" the servo wires to one of my RC gliders.




    Chow time for the Ts. One came out and hung around a while, parading her catch.










    Update pictures on some TLC lowlanders sent to me a while ago. Everyone is doing great. Top to bottom: N. albomarginata purple (black?), N. viking and N. sp. trang, N. bicalcarata.








    N. viking x truncata. This thing is going to be a monster.




    Finally a Sarracenia clump that I can be super proud of.




    Hurricane Creek white looking good:








    N. miranda showing off.






    Psychopsis mendenhall with two open flowers on one stalk. Uncommon.






    Orchids!






    A big S. psittacina giant:






    Last but not least, S. leucophylla x minor. It will color up really dark in a few weeks. I'm thinking of naming this one "Birthday Surprise", because it sure was one!

    That doesn't look like Hurricane Creek White, just anthocyanin free. HCW is a var. alba.

    I didn't know you had Ts!!! What kind is that?
