Plants, plants, plants, and a week teaching for the Palo Alto Art Center

Look Mom, I did it!!!

After using up many seeds and losing many spouts to the elements (mainly Kat care), I have finally been able to get my gomphrena globosa / globe amaranth plants to grow! Woo Hoo! My hibiscus and Pride of Barbados plants are now also starting to flower, so I finally have a local source for my flower projects. My lignum vitae (Guaiacum Sanctum) has starting sprouting lots of leaves. I was worried about it for a little while but I guess it just needed time to acclimatise. Since this is technically not the national flower of Jamaica, I ordered some Guaiacum Officinale seeds online from The Banana Tree. Let the art commence!!

I was able to grab a last minute week long Summer teaching gig from the Palo Alto Art Center teaching an advanced digital photography class to teens. I loved the program. We got to go on two field trips (Shoreline Park, and Stanford University) during the week and ended with an exhibition and slideshow of their work.
