Check out these sunflowers growing in someone's yard!  
 

@lola:

We used to grow sunflowers like that , taller actually, in Indiana.
maybe they need the milder summer than Houston offers.
Those big ones make the sunflower seeds you typically eat, the stripped ones. We used to cut the heads off and dry them (before the birds got all of the seeds) and then eat them.

There used to be a huge field of sunflowers off I-10 and 46.  The offramp you take to New Braunfels.

Its nice to hear some people say nice things about california, for some reason it seems like alot of people from houston dont like cali for some reason.


@weddz:

Not so much the state itself as much as the people and the government.


@FoFa: I agree!  The state is beautiful and the weather is wonderful.  However, most of the people in California are weird.  Maybe that's too strong.... there are some very nice people in California, but most of them do weird things.  As for the politics..... for a state with so many natural resources and businesses, only they could screw it up so bad.

California is frequently a leader in environmental awareness, but then they are surprised when they realize there is a cost involved (such as paying for bags).

It's a great place to visit, but I could never live there.

If your born and raised here it would be a difficult adjustment to live there. Its like a different world there. Like when we moved here from cali it felt like we went back in time. The 2 places are total opposite.

@xjamiex:   Nothing special about Huntington Beach, .....well..... at least you have the giant power plant, pump jack oil wells all over and the river that dumps medical waste into the surf.

mp, I've never been to Venice beach. I just fell in love with Huntington beach bc of the artsy, laid back vibe. The dog beach there was so fun.

@xjamiex girl it's so laid back there. All kinds of little shops and restaurants. The day we were there they were having a graffiti competition.

I was never a fan of Aldi's (they had them in Virginia when I lived there), but I freaking LOVE Trader Joe's.  I heard the River Oaks location at the Old Movie theater is a go, which is awesome because I work just a couple of blocks away. Once TJ's opens, I will probably do the majority of  my grocery shopping there.  As for bringing your own bags, I think that might just be a hippie California concept....in Virginia, they didn't charge you for bags.
Glad you had a nice time in California.  I agree, it's a lovely state (I was born and raised in San Francisco), but the politics, over-crowding, illegal immigration problems, and the abundance of bleeding heart liberals is a big turn-off, and the reason I will never move back.  I will go back to visit, and then gladly come back to Texas!

Jaime, I think you would dig San Francisco more- total dog lover's paradise.  Too bad a studio apartment starts at $1500 a month to rent.
