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!

The wildest thing
It has been beyond hot for the last three days, peaking today. It is almost 5 pm and 93 in the shade. It's probably 20 degrees warmer over the hill in Woodland Hills. HOT! Suddenly, about 5 minutes ago, the wind just kicked up like mad. Rattling screens scattering leaves, blowing and gusting like a blizzard! I wonder if the interior has gotten too hot for itself and is going to blow its heat towards the sea (Santa Anas) or if it has made a call to the sea for some relief. I can't tell which way it's blowing right now -- it's just all swirly and WILD! God help us if it's the Santa Anas -- hotter?????
