Over the past week I’ve had visitors. My parents and two of my sisters spent some time on the Central Coast with me. It was great to have them here.
Right now I am setting up nursery tours and conversations with growers, preparing for the courses I’ll be teaching in the fall, and trying to catch up on things I couldn’t do when classes were in session. I’ve had a few stressful things pop up lately. I hate when I bring on extra stress by making stupid mistakes.
Random note: This morning I spent some time hiking in the Irish Hills, and I saw two mountain lion cubs near the King Trail. I was only about 20 feet from them, but I left without taking any photos. I suspect I was being watched by a much larger mountain lion; I didn’t want to make her angry.
