Native plants can stand up to drought, but now is the time to plant those plants. If the rains really do come, it will give your native plants a jump on survival. For us, it is also about maintaining the stability of our hillside.
I've been planting, planting, planting.

The Botanic garden also had a cross-over art event, a fiber arts installation organized by Yarn Blaster Babes.
Check out our Earth Minute videos of the installation How Do Trees Dream? and a school project that displayed How Tall is a Redwood Tree?
This creative installation reminds us all to play. Explore trees, plants, and flowers. Don't just look, interact. A new viewpoint may open up some other aspect of your life. The solution to that work challenge might be found while playing in the garden. Gardens don't have to be big; make a mini-garden.
The Santa Barbara Botanic Garden plant sale continues through the end of the month. What more can I say? GO.
