 Here are a few pictures of the amazing plants grown by Laurel Carlisle.  She has a great collection of begonias (non-tuberous), cactus and succulents.

Another Acorn Woodpecker Brood!

The Acorn Woodpeckers are raising another baby in the stalk of an Agave Salmiana.  I've been watching birds fly back and forth for a couple of weeks, and today I finally got a good look at the baby.

Paul Carlisle's Tuberous Begonias

 It's always a treat to see Paul Carlisle's tuberous begonias.  I think he is the best tuberous begonia grower on the west coast of the United States.  He grows healthy plants with nice big blooms and the variety of colors is mesmerizing.
