Welcome to my Garden Blog
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.
Always there are animal creatures to join in the fun.
I look forward to sharing some of my experiences with you as they unfold.

Had a nice day looking at pumpkins, arts & crafts by locals, & listening to live music. Happy to see the County of LA had a "Smart Gardening Booth" and could talk to folks about backyard composting & waterwise gardening.(www.smartgardening.com) for more info.
Also happy to see my friends from Topanga Art & Tile showing their creative tile pieces.(www.topangaarttile.com/about.php)

The fog which had blanketed the sky yesterday, today instead hung low in the Canyon, a brilliant, fluffy white lit by the sun. I paused to watch it move across the hillside ..
