San Luis Obispo

Tuesday and Wednesday we visited with friends in San Luis Obispo. On a walk around their development, Stoneridge, we admired the flowers and plants, many of which we could not identify:

(Bird of Paradise)

(Hens and chicks--many times the size of those I remember from Ohio.)

(Pencil cactus over hens and chicks)

Our friends picked us up at the Santa Barbara, train station and took us  to Chaucer's Bookstore on State Street.  We managed to come away with only four more books to haul back to Washington.


  1. How lovely to leave the cold and see euphorbia and nasturtiums and balsam fir and birds of paradise in bloom! I'm so glad the little chilly bulbs are blooming now...

    1. It was pleasant to get away. Spring is well along here in Washington. The azaleas and dogwoods are a bit past their prime, the viburnum are in theirs.
