Out here in the Bay Area, we’re currently in middle of a storm system and there’s plenty of rain going around at the moment. The rain was (and still is) coming down pretty hard creating a heavy rhythmic symphony on the greenhouse roof.
I spent most of the day getting some work done in the Asylum. I’m only down to about half a table of sorting/cleaning Sarracenia. I am making a few occasional divisions here and there, but not so much at this time. I was also doing some cleaning of the Nepenthes, removing the dead pitchers and leaves. Oh, also trying my hand at a couple more cuttings from my own plants today. Did all this under the gray weighty watery skies.
I didn’t have my regular camera on me today, but had my cell phone which also does the job. Below are a few black and white photos from around the Asylum on this first very gray day of December.
Leaving for the greenhouse: the parking lot was an ocean of puddles.

Bloggin’ from the iPhone right now… (so glad I could do this from here.) I had this whole November photo post I wanted to share with you all but due to awesome circumstances, it will have to wait.
Anyway, I had a pretty good day today. Hung out with Jenn doing a rad photoshoot for dirtygirl awesomeness! After that the fam and I chillaxed in wonderful HMB and El Granada.
So, I got home, and that’s when the fun started. I turned on the computer and… BAM!!! Awwww F!!CK! Blue screen of death. My hard drive crashed. Totally awesome, yes? Sooooo — yeah. I gotta fix that. Booooo!!
In the mean time while I wait for my ‘puter to get up and running, here are a few iPhone pics…

Yeah. I just had to get some food in there… Haha!
Anyway, I hope to get my computer up and running again soon so I could get some more Sarracenia radness your way! Hope your November is starting off pretty awesome! (Sans the computer crashes…) Happy growing y’all!
