Welcome to my Garden Blog

Nature: wild & untouched. Photographing it, preserving it, taking walks and drinking in the landscapes as they unfold.

Gardens: touched by loving hands. Cultivated, nurtured. Drinking in those landscapes is wonderful, as well.

In my garden one enjoys some of both. Generally unpruned & wild, my plants reshape the garden as they grow.

Beyond the garden borders, natives from the Santa Monica Mtns await. Oak trees with their shady canopies. Cactus & Sage in the sun.

Always there are animal creatures to join in the fun.

I look forward to sharing some of my experiences with you as they unfold.

Sky Over Topanga - Smoke meets Storm

On my walk with Buddy this Topanga morning, the skies were quite interesting. In the East, smoke cloud could be seen.. gray with pink .. but overall, the clouds were gray & fluffy, rain clouds.

Hurricane off of Baja met Smoke from the Angeles Forest Fires.. An unusual coupling, for sure. The storm clouds kept the sun at bay, so though it still reach 100dgs, it didn't feel like it. There was a soft morning breeze and not so much smell of smoke.

Hoping some light rain might find its way to Topanga and help with the Station Fire in Tujunga.
