I eat these
wild red raspberries
still warm from the sun
and smelling faintly of jewel weed
in memory of my father
tucking the napkin
under his chin and bending
over an ironstone bowl
of the bright drupelets
awash in cream
with the sigh of a man
who has seen all and been redeemed
said time after time
as he lifted his spoon
men kill for this.

The last line of this poem has always resonated with me.
Spring ‘13 Panorama 3: May 5, 2013
Wow, this three-week update looks massively different!
1. The Hesperaloe parviflora, Texas Red Yucca, inflorescences are HUGE!
2. The grass looks a lot greener, but it still has a way to go.
3. The Opuntia engelmannii pads and buds continue to explode. There will be blooms on the next update!
4. The crepe myrtle and ornamental grasses are quickly filling in. I have also canopied the crepe myrtle and removed a portion of the irises to show off the new bromeliad collection that randomc sent me.
5. The Mexican plum has really grown - and it looks even more awkward!
6. Best of all: We replaced the old and faded patio furniture cushions!
