Oh so tropical

There are not a lot of tropical plants or flowers just blooming by the road here in Vancouver, so seeing cactus or tropical flowers on the side of the road in LA was a nice change for my West Coast eyes.  Also loved seeing all the palm trees everywhere.  It reminded me of when I was a kid and we lived in Fresno, California for a couple of years while my dad did his Master's degree.  Palm trees and pomegranates in the courtyard where we lived.  Good memories...
I hope you had a great week! For the most part I recovered from our holiday and made a huge dent in organizing my taxes while managing to glaze some new work.  I'll be in the studio most of the weekend loading a glaze kiln for a shop up-date on Monday.  In the meantime I have a little sale in my Etsy shop until the end of April:  15% off if you type in the code 'SPRINGSALE'.  Just in time for Mother's Day shopping, don't you think?
