WICKED...Thursday, May 31, 2012

Long before Dorothy drops in, two other girls meet in the Land of, born with emerald green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. Wicked follows these two unlikely friends as they grow into very different women...The Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch. Come and travel with Setness Tours to see this musical and enjoy a hosted luncheon onboard the Delta King.

San Francisco Floral Delight

July 27th was beautiful in San Francisco as we celebrated floral design at Flora Grubb nursery. Flora Grubb herself (yes that's her real name) spoke to us about garden solutions for small spaces, like the vertical garden at left.

Here's a repurposes Edsel automobile now serving as a giant planter.
Lunch was at the wonderful Delancy Street Restaurant, part of Delancy Street Foundation, the largest self-help residential organization for people who have hit bottom to completely rebuild their lives. The people there are so passionate and tell their stories so honestly that we were all touched to support such an excellent organization. I highly recommend the restaurant.
Our last stop was at Golden Gate Park's Conservatory of Flowers which was hosting a special exhibit based on the book Wicked Plants: Botanical Rogues & Assassins, a New York Times Bestseller.
