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!

Taming the lower garden beds

Before heading out, be sure to dress appropriately -- head gear is a must.

Once in the garden, declare, "I am the queen.  Ye shall yield!"
Then be sure to water your sister well.
And head out for more victories!
Smile at your successes.
Ah, but behold, older sister may know some truths!
The majesty of the oak, for one.
Or the power of a shovel, photographed really close.
Or even, really really really close:
Or, yes, the Mama!  Who surveys the garden space!
teAnd tends to what needs tending.
And tells us we actually have neighbors down there.
But, Mama is proud of the beds, and the helpers!

So, I jump for joy!
