Well, gardening friends, I know you are expecting this to be Plantspotting in Pasadena #2 but alas, a laptop crash several days ago has cost me the balance of those photos. FYI for any of you who are Mac users: the black screen with the little file folder outline sporting a flashing question mark is NOT your computer just wondering if you are having a good day. Fortunately I had backed up to the cloud and my external hard drive on April 21st but that does nothing for photos or data added on April 22!
The Apple Geniuses are installing a new solid state drive as I write but I will be laptop-less for several more days. Adding additional consternation is that tomorrow I leave for the 2018 Garden Bloggers Spring Fling in Austin, Texas–equipped with additional flash cards for my camera as I am without the ability to clear its memory nightly by downloading the day’s shots onto my laptop. So I’ll be garden hopping and picture snapping but blog posts will have to wait until I return from my trip. My challenge will be to remember all the great things I see long enough to tell you all about them! Making a note to myself now to take good notes for you–returning home on the 8th and hope to be posting soon after.
