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!

A whole lotta yellow! Cabin renovation continued!

Today I painted most of the living room.  I finished the ceiling, in orange -- which was the bulk of the job -- and two of the four walls, the largest two, in yellow.  The other two walls will be a greenish "acorn" brown.  The nook behind the television will lose the mirror and get paneled in pine.  And pine molding will go between the orange and yellow paint.
The yellow is, well, very yellow.  Very bright yellow.  It was designed to evoke the sun -- and it does -- and to be playful -- and it is.
