The Last Tour of the Palo Alto Garden (and The End of Nine Years of Medical Training)

By the time this post goes up, I will (hopefully) be back in Portland, OR. As I write this (on Friday) I have just finished my last day of fellowship training. This is the end of nine years of medical training. Holy moly.

It’s hard to believe it’s been almost a decade since I began all of this. It definitely doesn’t feel like it’s been that long.

I took a break outside today in Palo Alto. The weather was a perfect 70 degrees. I will be driving into 114 degree heat! Yikes! Here are the final photos of the Palo Alto garden for posterity’s sake.

The sweet peas
Geranium #1
Geranium #2
The mint. It started to show signs of mint rust (I think), so I decided to let it die. I won’t take it with me back to Portland. I cleaned the pot out well too.
Lettuce
Oregon Sugar Pod Peas
Volunteer marigolds! So pretty!
The tomatoes I grew from seeds sown directly in the ground in February. Haha. They haven’t been getting any water since…April? I’m surprised they’re still alive.
Pineapple sage grown from a cutting from Dr. Kong.
