Botanical garden






Flowers are without hope.  Because hope is tomorrow and flowers have no tomorrow.  
~Antonio Porchia, Voces, 1943, translated from Spanish by W.S. Merwin


I went to the Botanical Garden last weekend. It was such wonderful weather...
There will be "Sakura matsuri" (Cherry Blossom Festival) next weekend!

NATSUMI....which means NATALIE is now informing along with AMI who is TSUNAMI.
" N" and NEVADA mean HARRY REID.
And that's with all the mob on the planet to get the GREEN with IRENE and RENE COLATO.
NATSUMI is telling it like SCHAR- 169 who goes with the title " DWASS".
It's because they are all " Aryans" in Pedophilia, and they are MMILAYST with RRAPOP - SAPOP- LAPRAP and Washington.
Known as MUSSEC with ZETAS 99.
ERCHUMA - CHUMATO, this is IRA - POPERS from Massachusetts - Ontario.
And THE ROCCE who acted as PR- ROKST, has a lot
to say about STALLONE - CARON and ROCUNROL
with BERRIRO- NICE to EL SALVADOR.
" N".
Is it all that NDSPECO?
Explosives- Newfoundland?
Is it all that NIKKI_ 2290 with HURE?
NDUSA?
NCOMMIS?
Is that why NSTINKS?
Is that why there's a DEPLOSS?
With " N" - NYE?
Leslie Caron was so heavily involved she " NDLESSIT"?
Louisiana ?
In ELPITY- PTY LTD?
STARST - STARSCON were all " SYPPEN" with
" SNOW PENNY" - PENN VALLEY - with
GREYHOUNDS and " SUSAN NETBOY"?
IRONICUS MAXIMUS = " KANSAS KINGS"?
" N" means " Nigga" with " NIGERIA"?
Now it means , " O" for " ONIONS".

Look at NTSNONL.
This is the ultimate in " N".
Knights = Sir Lancelot.
That's LA.
Working TEXAS to ONTARIO.
It's where the music meets GATERS.
LOUISIANA- NEVADA.
NKICE = NICKST = NICANEME .
