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’
Penstemon heterophyllus ‘Blue Springs’
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…
