This album popped up today and I thought ID share.
When you announced your closure I offered to help set up a fully electronic version of your Veggie Palooza - are you interested in doing this so the thousands of plants don’t go to waste?
Whereas I love all the close-ups of flowers and plants, do you have any wide-angle landscape photographs that we could use for backgrounds in Zoom meetings?
Any chance we will see a late spring bloom after the rain, and if May allows it?
I have an idea on how to do the sale virtually... I can set up a simple online shopping cart / form where you can take orders and credit cards and then have pickers gather the orders and place the selected items on numbered trays for pickup. People drive up, verify their order number, grab and go. No human to human contact and all payment done electronically only. Let me know if you're interested.
Is Green Scene still on for April 4-5?

Found a free solar charging station for all of nature to use.
I buy a 3 foot live christmas tree because I refuse to cut a tree down. I am looking for somewhere in the North Orange County Area where I can now donate it. Can you advise?
