Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 3: Hidden Holly

As I was walking home from work today during a break in the rain, I spied a hidden holly plant sprouting unexpectedly behind the thin metal bars of a little courtyard just outside the parking garage that borders the alley between J and K Streets on 12th Street in downtown Sac. 

I love finding those surprising pockets of natural growth amongst all of the typical downtown "built environment."  Sacramento is known as the City of Trees, and yet so many other types of greenery and flowers soften the harsh cityscape and complement the amazing tree canopy, through every season and time of year.
