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!

Talk to my tomatoes

It's mid-September.  My pumpkins are orange.  My 5-year old is in school.  Nights are COLD.  Fall could be upon us.  But I hope not.  Look at my luscious tomato plants.  Tell them they CAN make more ripe tomatoes!  They can they can they can!

The lower beds are prepped for Fall planting.

I love this photo, even with its foreground overexposed -- it says "peace" to me and is of the area which is planned for my chicken coop and maybe my goat house.

This picture isn't as pretty but might give a better view of the space for those animals!
This is another nice angle to gaze upon from my lower beds.
Chive flowers and oak trees catch the sun.
So does the dawn redwood.
And the geranium bloom.
And the bird of paradise leaf.
And here is one of those orange pumpkins.
