The fertile ground in this part of the Central Valley is good not just for fruits and vegetables, but a great variety of other plants. During late winter and spring you can see flowers on trees, bushes, and on the ground throughout the city.
2007-06-14 14:09:13 Is this page really relevant? —CarlosOverstreet
- Well, the wiki is "an interconnected community effort to explore, discuss and compile anything and everything about Davis — especially the little, enjoyable things." I'd say spring flowers count among the little, enjoyable things about Davis. —CovertProfessor
2007-06-14 14:29:16 They do, but there is already a flora page that has different species and cultivars that people can explore further in depth and includes miscellaneous pictures. This page seems more like a photo gallery than anything of substance. I suppose it could be edited to include the plethora of flowering plants in spring and the country feel they give to the town. Especially after the seasonal depression of Winter. —CarlosOverstreet
2007-06-14 21:11:03 Yes, but the flora page is about the factual nature of flowers, while this is more about aesthetic appreciation of them. I like it. —JabberWokky
2007-06-14 21:19:33 I see your point, Carlos, and I also agree that more pictures would help. I love the diversity of flowers that you see in people's gardens, and more of those pictures would be nice. —CovertProfessor
2007-06-14 21:21:21 OK. How do you think we could best make this page better than what it was. —CarlosOverstreet
2007-06-14 21:48:47 "Floral Beauty"? "Places to see Flowers"? Just like an entry about pets versus an entry about animals, this is flowers-as-beauty versus flowers-as-species? That's how I envision it, but it could go in several different directions at this point. —JabberWokky
2007-06-15 01:27:23 Should we organize it into sections, say "Flower Gardens", and "Misc Flora"? —CarlosOverstreet
2007-06-15 09:12:56 I think, like Shadiness Factor, there doesn't need to be much formal organization (yes, I am the same guy who constantly adds headers to some entries). Some entries are best left less structured, a la an art gallery. These are pretty pictures of the flowers in Davis. —JabberWokky
2007-06-15 17:59:44 We could call it "Stop and Smell the Davis Flowers" and add it to the various lists of things to do in Davis... :-) —CovertProfessor
- I like that... for some reason this reminds me of The Grass Sidewalk and other lighthearted "capture the feeling" entries. —JabberWokky
2008-05-04 13:14:36 poppies come up in the grande school site, or at least they did —StevenDaubert
2013-05-02 23:17:10 I think it would be helpful to add times when the flowers on this page bloom. —CarlosOverstreet
