i took a little lunchbreak on my patio this afternoon, and couldn’t help but find it quite peaceful back here, this weird little space off my kitchen nook. i keep killing everything in sight out here, because it gets an awful lot of wind, so i’ve finally succumbed to succulents. they do just fine in the gale storms that whip down from twin peaks into poor wind-swept noe valley. i highly recommend these hardy, drought-tolerant souls should you too have a black thumb. i thought i’d share a few pics — i had my caftan on and was feeling rather hippy-dippy. enjoy, or at least — indulge me.
