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!

When it all crashes down, smell the flowers!

The shower wall may have come down in a million shards of glass, but who cares -- I've got ALL THIS!

A perfect princess!
Self-propagating peas:
Gorgeous spring flowers:

A freshly clean kid:
Maple madness:

Flowering trees and shrubs:

A fabulous fig tree:
Blackberry blossoms:
And apple blossoms:
And an extravaganza of oregano:
And pear blossoms:
And baby peaches:
Onions from last year's planting:
A tomato still growing on the vine!
And a Topanga sunset.
