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 frogs will keep you safe, I guess

I was sitting at the computer just now, uploading some pictures, when Greggie came in, wearing a backpack and carrying a blanket.

G: I want to go out to the playhouse.
M: It's dark outside now, honey. I don't think you want to go down there.
G: I do. I want to go outside.
M: Gregorie, you'll be scared. It's too dark out there.
[she opens the door and we could hear lots of croaking from the creek below]
G: No, Mama. I won't be scared. There are FROGS out there. It's not scary!
