At the Huntington
At the Huntington

It was hot — in the 90s.  It was humid.  And it was lovely.

I think I need some of these for my garden.  So dramatic and delicious-looking.  Shouldn’t you be able to eat them?  A visual cross between an artichoke and a rose.

The Huntington needs at least a week.  The library, the art collections, the grounds…and they are building a new visitors’ center.  I wish it weren’t two hours away.  But it made a great day trip for us and our guests.

I heard a reading of the first lines of the Prologue to the Canterbury Tales in Middle English and realized I had lost two of the lines in the past 47 years.  Now I will have to go find a copy online and re-memorize.    Succulents and poetry, oh my!
