Last night was a first: I actually dreamed about succulents. Specifically, I was visiting my girlfriend's dad in a nursing home that doubled as, um, a succulent store (what??). This may have stemmed from my visit to Paxton Gate on Valencia in SF yesterday, followed by my discussion with my girlfriend about visiting her father. But nonetheless... weird.
I didn't buy anything at Paxton Gate--too expensive. But they had, as always, a cool selection of interesting things, including a bunch of succulents. I was tempted by a tiny variegated haworthia, but since I already have one, it seemed a little silly. BTW, it looks like Paxton Gate gets most of their succs from Succulent Gardens in Castroville and Lone Pine Gardens in Sebastopol. I really want to visit Lone Pine Gardens... Anyone been there?
