The Cactus Garden

By | Sat June 28, 2014

Today was mostly a quiet day, with a great visit from a friend, and a quick trip up to Stanford for an EKG (baseline prior to chemo). Since I arrived early, they seem to have a habit of telling me my appointments are 20-30 minutes before they actually schedule the appointment, I took the extra half hour to take a closer look at the cactus garden. Just before the garden, there are a bunch of trees that have been relocated into giant transplant containers. They are building a new hospital, so there is construction everywhere. Apparently, they try to save a lot of the trees during construction, and replant them when the buildings are finished.

I find it interesting that Royal Roads University has a rose garden, and Stanford University has a cactus garden.

Thanks Maha for the lovely scarves – this one does a great job hiding my port incision.
