Hello, World

Saying hello to a squirrel
Saying hello to a squirrel

Originally from Southern California, I moved back to LA after living briefly in NYC. New York apartments taught me the value of a well-packed terrarium, while the balconies and weather in Los Angeles taught me that I’ll fit plants anywhere I can. Turns out it’s an addiction. 
I firmly believe that, no matter how deep in the city you may live, nature has some effect on you. More specifically, I think plants are perfectly fine people. We should give them a chance to flourish, and help them where we can. Or at least, stop trying so negligently to harm them.  
I want everyone to have a connection to nature – and then, hopefully a positive one. Part of that means realizing that we do have a connection to nature, even as far removed from it as we seem to be at times.

From the content I’m posting and the links I’m putting up, you can probably guess my focus is on nature. Mostly plants and the birds in them, but other critters are fine too. Weather is a wonder. I hope some of the information or experiences here can help you out.

Some time later…

I like a Tree!

Learn about Trees For Change

This is The Tree grove. I haven’t found the exact tree, but I’d like to visit it. It was planted in February of 2020 as a Christmas gift.

It currently lives in Tahoe National Forest, in northeastern California. This batch of trees were planted until the end of February 2020 to replace trees burned in the North fire (2018).
The trees they planted were native to the region – Ponderosa pine, Jeffery pine, Douglas fir, sugar pine or incense cedar.

I like a Star!

As a gift, this star was named after me:

2° 12′ 58.32″ rectascension
29.9994° declination
9.81 magnitude
In constellation of Triangle

“When You Wish Upon A Star, Your Dreams Come True”
Not sure which service used this slogan – I have no other information. Maybe it’ll be dug up someday.
