PRA in OC So Cal today

Recommended Posts

DoomsDave

The PSSC had a meeting in Westminster and Fountain Valley in Orange County California today at two great, if very different gardens. 

The first garden is that Steve Velez, son of the late Ralph Velez who now owns the home and garden. Happy obscenities filled the air. This garden was started back in 1962, 59 years ago.

Ralph was something of a palmy godfather to many, including me. I first visited hinplace back in the early 1990s.

If you were there, too share your own pictures here!

The second garden was for Larry and Sue Black. This was started in 1999. Larry used a wholly different approach.

Thanks for posting.

I have to work on weekends, so I miss all the meetings.

Thanks for sharing your pics Dave! I couldn't make the meeting, but am happy to see that Ralph's garden is living on.  Special place.

I was so sad to find out we already had a family trip planned for the weekend. Tried to talk my wife into changing plans. I really like the Velez garden and haven't been there in years so I definitely missed out on this one.
