False Start

It has been beautiful here in San Francisco. Sitting at lunch with a friend today we were boiling in the sun and wondering what month it was. Whenever it's nice I like to have fresh flowers around the house just to bring some of the outdoors in.

I do have a small urban garden which is out on a tiny area accessible only by the hallway window, it at least gives us something pretty to look at in addition to our otherwise bland view of our neighbor's kitchen. The following photos were taken last summer when it was a bit more lush out there. Since then there's been a few plant funerals, and a few additions to the mix.

Another clue that this photos is outdated is you can peek in our living room there and see Stephen reading a book, which he never has time for anymore. The demands of start-ups and music careers and two dogs and a wife don't allow for such leisurely pursuits around here.
But ooh look how pretty my fuschia is! That plant seems to do well year round. I definitely don't have a green thumb but I've learned that most plants will do whatever they need to do to survive.
