I was actually walking my dog in Riverside yesterday and thinking how silly I was for buying a membership to Botanica and I have not used it but once. : (

I LOVE botanica...such a peaceful place.

I'm so sorry to hear about your neighbors cat, but if you do re read my post you will see that 1. I don't think they are "cute", I just love taking pictures of wildlife 2. My words are the one italized, I will go back and use quotation marks as I was quoting from a web site 3. I'd definetly take a cat over a raccoon any day too, I wish I was allowed pets where I lived....can Bluebeard come visit?

The Living Wall is wonderful Elizabeth.

To answer your question on my Sunday Stone Angel post
it appears that the black is mildew of some sort? but we cannot be entirely sure.
In zooming in for a closer look at the dark areas you asked about I saw that all ten digits are broken off of the angel in the last photo! Hadn't noticed it before
