Unfinished designs and an out-of-town conference aren’t a good idea.
I’m at the APGA Native Plants Symposium in Austin, which also coincides with South by Southwest, which would also be enjoyable to take in – music, tech or film included. But the array of like-minded, bright people I’ve interacted with is more worth it than words describe.
A major climate division lies at that location, running from just west of south, then northward into the great plains; it divides the dry and high Chihuahuan Desert to the west, and the lower and more humid country to the east and south. The Pecos River is near that change.
This is quite a great, small conference group, too. I’ve not attended a conference like this, so I’m figuring it out and soaking it in.
Something I’m not used to seeing in less sophisticated places than Austin – natives are actually key in everything at this series of gardens, not marginalized.
Same with the residence we visited prior; exceptional.
It is beyond amazing, and one would be well-served taking people here you’re trying to convince to see for themselves, even clients, if you are able.
