There May Come a Day

There May Come a Day

when we will move from our home. If we do, I will miss the magic of the Gothic vista that is a part of our dawn and our dusk.

Last Saturday the air was a bit crisp, the skies were clear and dry.  Great conditions for garden tours. We’re back at the long, driveway of one of the Altadena gardens.   I actually took these pictures in reverse order.  This garden was a combo of  practicality and whimsy.  It never took itself too seriously. [...]

Marvels, All

Marvels, All

It was very thoughtful of our friend Karen Klein to wear her red top for this picture.  Well, I know she didn’t plan to be in the picture, but I couldn’t help but take the shot.  She was doing what most of the rest of us would be doing given the glory of the planting [...]

What did you see?

What did you see?

James and I had different plans for our garden tours:  he was devoting the entire day and I thought he would poop out after a few and we’d spend three or so hours garden viewing.  We ended up touring gardens for almost six hours; including driving time.   Having worked on our gardens for a [...]

In the [...]

Christ Lag in Todesbanden

Christ Lag in Todesbanden

Good Friday.  Good day.  For some of us the end of the work week is here, for others it is a most solemn day during Lent.  At least for part of the day.  My faith is strong, even when I have reservations about what is going in the church.  We humans have a funny ability [...]

Muir Ranch, Part the Second

Muir Ranch, Part the Second

I know the title of these posts on Muir is hokey.  But every once in a while I just get in a mood.  Probably need more roughage.  On the other hand, visiting Muir Ranch on a Plug Mob Saturday has a bit of drama all about it.  Being on 1.5 acres there is lots going [...]
