Sculpture Theft

I've always admired Kevin's work. His sculptures of plants with solar panels, placed on the leaf gather light as a leaf would. The panels illuminate the "fruit" of the plants at sundown creating a warm glow. Go to to see the photos. He had some sculptures stolen recently. He is offering a reward his work. The irony here is that many more people will see his work now.

As they should. I hope they get it back.

Cactus Ranch

Wow! I went to the Cactus Ranch in Reseda, California this week. It is a must for cactus collectors or anyone who wants to save money on their water bill. The address is 19420 Saticoy st, Resedsa, Ca 818 894 5694 Saturday and Sunday tours are available. They have an incredible collection of plants to choose from. There are probably 10,000 large cactus on site as well as iron dinosaurs (life size) and old wild west buildings. Dave was nice enough to give me a tour and amazingly, I managed to only buy two plants before I left. I'm going back in two weeks to get a bunch.

Long time coming...

I fell off a motorcycle over the new year so I've been down for awhile. Anyhow, it's good to be back. Here's a link to the Ruth Bancroft Garden.
