What football game? I honestly couldn’t tell you who was playing in Sunday’s game, but I can tell you that Super Bowl Sunday is a great time to make a pilgrimage to Annie’s Annuals! Traffic was a breeze and except for getting way lost in Richmond– No, I did not remember to bring a map, but I did remember to bring chocolate… It’s just that chocolate turns out not to be a very good navigational tool– we made great time.

We were also blessed with very little nursery traffic, which made plant perusing much more relaxed and enjoyable.

Here’s my haul.


Sparaxis grandiflora ssp. grandiflora

Leptosiphon ‘French Hybrids’

Romulea atranda

Linaria purpurea

Penstemon heterophyllus ‘Blue Springs’

Ixia dubia

New Zealand wind grass (Stipa arundinacea)

lavender breadseed poppy

For lunch, we continued up the road to 4th Street in Berkeley. Cafe Rouge. Yum. Stopped at The Gardener, which I think should be re-named The Fancy Table Setter. It’s not very gardeney these days… Hopefully that’ll change with the season…
