It's not boring at all. I love seeing the wonderful work you were all involved in!
I have to catch a plane, so I have to make this short and sweet, but I'll soon be that much closer to you! In AZ.
Hey Naomi, no it is not a boring series in fact I think it is a good initiative back in those times and yes in fact I'm glad you shared this with us :D
I've always been involved in voluntary & social work and this by far is the most significant with cactus :D
Not boring at all, how wonderful to hear about the great event and what it represented.

Naomi,what a beautiful garden you put together. It was you who had the idea, design, and put the people together. You deserved the plaque and recognition. Proud of you lady. What a caring thing to do.
It must have meant the world to Woody's wife but also to all those through the years who came there for solace. Giant kudos.
You and your photos are never boring, Naomi. I can see how this project would have brought a great sense of accomplishment to everyone involved.
You could never be boring - You have such an interesting life and your pics are always beautiful! Your blog is a joy to read
Certainly not boring me. It's nice to document the people behind this thoughtful gift to a group of people who would otherwise have been not had such beauty to help them in their fight.
I love cactus and succulent gardens. I can't wait to see what it looks like today.
What a beautiful gift to the world!!!
Your involvement in a project like this must have been very enriching for you!!!
This is amazing.. More people should donate to this cause.. i have a friend who is HIV survivor.. he has had HIV for like 12 years now.
BORING? Please, good deeds, good people, THAT should never be boring. It is inspiring!!
I was so excited when I saw real cacti in the desert in Utah and Nevada back when we took some Canadian teenagers to LA on a Greyhound Coach for spring break! It was a long journey but amazing! I wish I had captured the sight of the cacti with my camera but didn't. It was incredible and like nothing I had seen before! ALso, what a beautiful idea for a hospice garden!
Are you kidding? This is great stuff. There are so many sides to you. I love this one. The pictures are great and I am so looking forward to the 15 years later pics.
Such a heartwarming project, the results of which go on and on!
Is the garden open to the public? Can people stroll through?
I'm so glad there are photographs recording such a special day and I hope we may see some of the garden in the noughties.
Great job done by all Naomi.
My hope is that the building will be taken over by something else meaningful and the gardens become a destination for the public! If I'm ever in LA I want to see it!
You really could write a book of all the places you've been, people you've known, things you've done. I'm glad you're doing this blog and commemorating your life's loves. You will have a lasting impact in this world.
This is a fascinating, emotionally moving series of blog posts as I recall those years. You've prompted my memory of one young forty year old HIV positive patient whose future was unknown, but certainly not promising, for whom I provided therapy services.
This garden would have been truly a very significant undertaking then for individuals in great need of a caring, comforting environment where they could be nourished by nature's environment with a little help from you and all these marvelous people.
Gardens at Hospices are so important--they are another affirmation of life, and the work that goes into their creation is so important. Thank you so much for sharing this, Naomi.
You could never be boring Naomi! you've led such an interesting life (and you still are interesting!)and I love hearing your memories and seeing any photos you have of them!!
It's really nice to be involved in activities that matters and it's a beautiful garden you made. Awesome work!
I don't have internet at home since Friday because something is wrong with the line and it really frustrates the hell out of me because my project is due soon. I miss you too and hope you have a lovely week! :)
Not boring at all, I'm so looking forward to seeing the garden today. What a wonderful thing to have done, kudos!
I think you're so wonderful
and I love any time you post any photos of you, it's always a treat
gardens are healing places
love the photo of your beloved gardener in the earlier post, he has an amazing smile
As everyone else has said, this is not boring. It's inspiring. What a wonderful idea and way to give to others. I enjoyed all the photos
Naomi, you tell the best stories. I was thinking about you this week and popped over to see how you are doing. Ferris and Cam are great. Something happened to their blog and I haven't been able to post, but they are celebs on Facebook.
I've been blogging a bit at my old site.
I will try to come by more often...school is in session! :)
God BLESS you for what you and others have done here!
