Scarlet Begonias

She had rings on her fingers and bells on her shoes.
And I knew without askin' she was into the blues.
She wore scarlet begonias tucked into her curls,
I knew right away she was not like other girls, other girls.

Channel Islands Restoration nonprofit deadhead plant police

well you can plant a bunch of native plants but that won't stop Nature from moving seeds around as she sees fit, esp in Spring...but I saw the thing about a nonprofit from Carp, Channel Islands Restoration and how they are planting thousands of "native' plants at Refugio creek...well I don't hang out at Refugio but I hear they ripped out fennel, castor bean and Eucalyptus trees which is mighty stupid....fennel is wonderful and smells like licorice...a welcome to Springtime...the eucs are home to raptors..and the castor bean is maligned but is a very pretty plant....and a will be back

so these plant police nazis keep doing these little species cleansing projects for "biodiversity" which is a meaningless term but supposedly the native plants will enhance my enjoyment of being outside..... I tell them it's bullshit...I don't like the outside looking like someone's private little garden....I like the outside wild and haphazard...

native plants got washed out/2014
now the folly of all this is the main dude at CIR is a big fat slob and the treasurer is... egadds!! that native cultist chick who writes for NOOZHAWK!! that Kathleen gal!! this bitch wants to get rid of honeybees because they are non-native!!

no trout but lotsa seaweed!
well these folks are on my radar and I will expose their evil deeds....biodiversity flies in the face of dispersal, the means by which seeds get blown around by winds and the fennel grows...luckily for me, they can't stop that and the fennel will continue to grow.... I never in a million years thought I would come across people who would think fennel is a bad thing...unbelieveable! FENNEL is LIFE and these people are deadheads..just look at them..deadheads...bad news...

pretty native plants in July 2013
now as to the claim that the native plants provide some super environment for native animals...not true.... the "restoration" at the Carp State beach creek was started a few years back..they killed the ice plant on the ocean side of the creek..they covered it with plastic and smothered it...then they planted these natives which haven't weathered so well...the ice plant doesn't need much water and it a soil stabilizer...the natives haven't spread out and you can see the erosion of the banks...and the creeks are full of seaweed after the recent storms...

ice plant is perfect for beach parks...a good, hardy ground cover
the folks at Channel Islands Restoration have heads  full of seaweed!
