Plantgasm - I love plants too much. By Derek Powazek.

Getting out and about.

Orchidgasm at the Pacific Orchid Expo

I left my jaw on the floor of the Pacific Orchid Expo.

Lands End, San Francisco

Heather and I took advantage of the first sunny day in a while and visited Lands End. The plants were all stretching out with the beginnings of spring.

Paula Hayes at The Museum of Modern Art

If you’re in New York City, don’t miss Paula Hayes’ two “living artworks” in the MoMa lobby.

A Visit to Norman’s Orchids

In between the native chaparral and red tile-roofed homes, sits Norman’s Orchids, a tropical oasis in Southern California.

A Visit to the SFBG Succulents

If you’re in town, the succulents at the San Francisco Botanical Garden well worth a visit.

A Visit to the SF Conservatory of Flowers

It’s been burned down, smashed up, and abandoned, but after 100 years, the crown jewel of botanical San Francisco is still thriving.
