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.

Grab your Hat & Read with the Cat

Today is an important day in literary history: it’s Dr. Seuss’s birthday! Celebrate the beloved children’s writer with the National Education Association’s Read Across America. http://www.readacrossamerica.org/

Whether your child enjoys The Lorax or The Cat in the Hat, The Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew, Harry Potter or Huckleberry Finn, all you need is a hat, a cat, and your favorite book. Take some time to read with your young ones today.

More than 45 million children, teens and adults take part in this celebration every year, and NEA members across the country are mobilizing millions of students, parents, VIP readers and leaders to join the nation's largest reading celebration.

Take this day to share the wonder of reading with your loved ones.
