Smitten

I’m lying on the dirt in the back yard, looking up at our clementine tree. The branches hang low to the ground, heavy with fruit. This year we had a lot of rain, plus I fertilized. There will be more fruit than ever. The “cuties” at the store have been genetically altered so they don’t […]

Oral Weather Report

Oral Weather Report

Those who say southern California has no seasons are merely immune to their subtlety. There was a teeny, tiny nip in the air today, so tiny we’ll have to call it a niplet, but we know fall is coming on. This is a confusing time. On our walk today, Boz and I saw one sleeveless […]

No Stopping Any Time

No Stopping Any Time

This is how I feel today–actually, I usually feel this way–a bit foggy with no place to stop, but if I can just get this thing weeded I’ll be able to see the forest, not to mention the trees. Any pointers? Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Allendale Branch Library

Allendale Branch Library

Ha! Library! Don’t say I didn’t warn you. The Allendale Branch library was a surprise to me. It’s across the street from the Blair school complex, which is imposing enough that I drove around the block twice before I found the library hiding in plain sight. If you’re in need of a fiction fix and […]

Sure, Fine, Just Not Here

Sure, Fine, Just Not Here

Is this a dog in a puddle? dog in an airplane? dog in quicksand? dog in a soccer field? dog in a cake? If you chose “dog in a soccer field,” you are correct. Boz is standing on the planned location of “Sycamore Athletic Field” at Hahamongna Watershed Park. Last July the citizens of Pasadena […]

Bawdy Litfest

The evening is called Singing the Bawdy Electric (in reference to Walt Whitman’s poem). As Timothy Rutt said on Altadenablog, “every bawdy is invited.” There will be readings […]

You thought I was finished yesterday. Nope! There’s more. Here are some good things to do this weekend for those who like to get their hands (and hiking boots) dirty. If you know of an event, please feel free to add it to the comments. The Theodore Payne Foundation’s Native Plant Sale and Fall Festival […]

A Likely Pairing

A Likely Pairing

Journey House is one of those grand, old Pasadena homes with gorgeous woodwork and Craftsman touches. It’s a comfortable giant, with old growth trees and a big yard. But those things aren’t what make it special. What’s special is its mission “…to assist emancipated foster youth over eighteen years of age to meet their initial […]
