This is the story of our adventures -- every day and extraordinary; our dreams -- tiny and grand; our gardens -- ornamental and sustaining; this is the story of our journey.  We are a family of four living a mindful, simple life here in Los Angeles County.  We are green, conscious, and forward thinking.  We keep an eye on the past because some of the best things have already been done and bear repeating.  Walk and talk with us, have a glass of wine, taste a peach or a tomato, blow some bubbles and watch them drift up over the canyon ridge.  Enjoy!

In the Winter Sunshine

Blonde curls and bright blue eyes
Sugar cookie smiles
Splashing in the winter sunshine

The little one comes swimming
Really just toe tipping
Upturned nose at the water-top

“Look out baby!
I’m jumping!
I’m swimming!”

Bubbles and wild hazel eyes
A mama’s sure hands
Coughs and tears in the slanted sunshine

“You alright baby!
You come jump and swim with me”
Together in the winter sunshine.
