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.

Organic Gardening in November

Here I am doing a little gardening. It's November and the weather in SoCal is wonderful! I am trying a tip I got from another gardener, to add organic material to my garden soil. I am using kitchen scraps that have been pureed in the blender, instead of waiting for them to break down in the compost bin. I dug several holes & filled with the organic mix. This blend contains: avocado, eggshells & coffee grinds. We'll see what happens!
