TBGO: Black Powder;, I Mean: "Bang-o", I Mean: "Bang-o": Context is everything.

Central Coast Horticulture
It was a blustery day with snow on the mountain tops and white caps on the ocean but even in winter we can always find flowers blooming somewhere in Big Sur. Calla Lillies in a protected creek bed with an ocean view! I love our State Parks! Photo by @[1012415790:2048:Stan Russell]

Woody do love this part of Cali...I love a LOT of it, actually, mostly north of Ventura. I plan to have my ashes distributed upon the waves at Morro Rock. If there is also an orgy at the same time, that'd be good. I could live to speak.
As far as vegetation: Those are wild calla lillies along a creek in the Big Sur. 
Personally, I am an ardent admirer of CalTrans' iceplant...I'd grow it in my yard, if 1) I could get it and 2) it would grow in NM. Other than the sea itself, there is no other quotidian reminder of Cali that is more evocative of the place than iceplant (see below).
