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.

Autumn Dawn over Topanga

The days of October are so short. Dawn does not come until 6:30 A.M. I wait, listening to an Owl hoot and crickets chirping. As the sky lightens from black to more blue, the Owl decides finally to go to sleep. His song is replaced with a Coyote cry.. and crickets fade away. Pink clouds form over the Topanga State Park giving me this great photo opportunity to start the day.
