Things I want to do this year

I don’t do resolutions but I decided to make a list of things I want to do this year.

Finish the three books I have started and illustrate them.

Go to the Huntington Library & Gardens at least once this year

Go to Descanso Gardens

Go to the Arboretum

Go to the Getty and the Getty Villa

Go to the San Diego Zoo

Go to the Cabrillo Marine Museum

Visit the Endeavour in its new home

Visit the Pacific Asia Museum in Pasadena again

Get another tattoo. BunniHoTep I think

Go to Franklin Canyon – Santa Monica National Park

More trees for the list

Adding to the list for yesterday:

At Poppy’s request: Madrone – Arbutus menziesii

Pineapple guave – Feijoa sellowiana

I’m also thinking of adding:

California Walnut – Juglans californica

Jeffrey Pine or Ponderosa Pine – Pinus jeffreyi or Pinus ponderosa

Orange – Citrus sinensis

California Pepper Tree – Schinus molle

California Willow – Salix

Still pondering… California has more native plants and trees than any other state because of its variety of ecosystems.
