I moved into the Sober Living Retreat in January 2010, directly across from the Sprinter Escondido Ave (city renamed Civic Center Drive) transit station. I immediately realized the unique possibility, and above our slope to tracks, Director Rassel donated 8 large Royal Blue morning glory vines, now covering chain link of 8 ft. x 80 ft. section. From the top of the grade, vines are creeping towards the rr tracks to soon to be a waterfall effect of thousands of sameflowers as soon as spring springs for sure into being. Thousands of California's state flower seeds have been spread to hopefully their golden orange masses later on. Planned by me, directly in front of the vines on fence will be 4 ft. ht. Italian white sunflowers to commerate Pavorotti, the now passed Opera wonder, amidst a lower planting of white african daises, a perennial. All to be a immense patriotic of red, white and blue. The Royal Blue morning glories start early in day in blue hue, but magically change to a rose red!

Inside all around the grey two story dormitory where I and other clients reside is front, side and back patio area are filled with flowering plants, thousands of flowers in an American Cottage method a sport of the traditional Engish Cottage method (you can look up its orgin on the internet, created by poor Victorian gardeners working for the British noble classes..

To visit call Dr. Rassel at his office at 981 Civic Center Drive, 1- 760-758-8880. In his area is a magficent succulent garden to view, his previous effort to beautify Vista. and all to and fro to expressway 78.

My section embraces weeds if their textures add to the effect. The side section will have a mass of Heavenly Blue morning glories, unlike Arizona, they're not illegal here. Dr. Rassel once told me, I was cantankrous, he is correct, its a term for stubborn mules, after all, I am a democrat celebrating diversity instead of obstructionism. JB.
