After some delays due to a few unavailable species, my berry babies are all here! They’re in nice shape and will be nestled into the ground first thing in the morning. I’m especially anxious over the Mexican Elderberries, they’re native to Catron county but I’m afraid the Canyon might be a bit cold for them. So I’m going to find a sunny spot and pamper them for a while. I ordered from a great native plants nursery in central Cali called Las Pilitas, and if you need Southwestern native plants, I highly recommend them. They have an exceptional selection and have been in the business for a long time.
Speaking of babies, jim mcdonald and his wife have a new one! A beautiful (and humongous) little boy named Rowan, and here’s some pictures. I suggest sending offerings of high quality chocolate, organic tobacco and bundles of choice hand gathered herbs.
