Coastal Juxtapositions

Two coastlines, two maritime landscapes.  The juxtaposition of work and holiday have me flying from Halifax NS to Washington State’s San Juan Archipelago in less than a week.  Based on my comfort level with the plants, one counts as home.  One doesn’t.  The fact that “home” doesn’t correspond with “country” makes me question the validity of arbitrary political boundaries for plants and those that track them.
