Historically significant trees in Niles CA next to Vallejo Adobe are growing where 1,000s of trees and plants were nurtured and shipped to San Francisco for the Pan Pacific international exposition in 1915. The first illuminated spectacle was to show SF was back-and open for business after the earthquake. The Adobe was built in the early 1800s. The old California Nursery was the first in the state I’d an important landmark which I hope the city will treasure and be a good steward of since it is all that’s left of life before Silicon Valley.

Flew 3,000 miles to smell fresh CA eucalyptus leaves and they’re a wonderful as I remember. #eucalyptus#leaves#trees#bayarea#bluesky #nocloudsinthesky

...but this is where I ❤️Before Hollywood, cowboys were filmed in these hills by Charlie Chaplin’s studio. The time will soon come when houses will cover the beauty-I won’t be back when that happens. Only 1,000 people fight to save the little bit of nature left in a city with more than a quarter of a million. There won’t be anyone left who cares.#ilovenilesca#oaktrees#westernhills #landscspephotography#nature#outdoors #nilescanyon#bayarea#cowboys #primerealestate

Southern hospitality I always say, is real. Hot day but it’s cool on the porch with the fan above while drinking sweet tea. Life’s slower down here, which means people chat, smile, greet eachother and take their time sharing stories. Some of those are scary, sad, but healing can begin when his value is respected by the listeners. In the North, people like their space-keep to themselves. There’s a separate culture down here and I love it. It’s the culture of kindness and respect. #southernliving #i❤️thesouth#unc#chapelhill#homey#setaspell #botanicalgardens #porchdecor#ferns#redclay
