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
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.
