When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not.

Every December, the jade plants begin to flower. In Santa Barbara, jade plants (crassula ovata) grow to be as large as small trees. These jade plants, in front of an old Victorian house downtown, are growing in a thick little grove, and some of them are seven feet tall.
I'm posting a photo advent calendar, with a holiday-photo-a-day, December 1 until December 25.
