Lee, wearing her brace, visits the nursery.
I once wrote that I was a “Terrible Garden Blogger”. I was referring to the fact that I just couldn’t get into a daily or weekly routine but wrote a blog when I was inspired. When I broke my hip last February, I had no idea […]
Randy flares his beautiful tail to impress us.
We have a peacock, named Randy, that wanders through the little village of Cambria. He has been seen walking along Main Street and through various neighborhoods. Originally, Randy lived at Linn’s farmhouse, five miles out on Santa Rosa Creek Road; the place where they sell […]
“I didn’t mean to do it!”
I’ve had to put aside my computer for the last month. I took a fall in the garden and have been in the hospital for the last four weeks. Early one beautiful morning in late February, I broke my hip. I’d taken the labradoodle puppy, Marilyn, the one […]
The 2012 Cambria Scarecrow Festival, presented by the Cambria Historical Society, is in full swing. We had our first light rain of the season, the dust has settled, the sun is out, and it is a beautiful sunny day in our little coastal town.

Happy Mothers Day to those of you who have mothered and will always mother, and who understand the maternal instincts that are so apparent in hens. It is really so touching.

Those Allium are something special!
I’ve spent a few hours a day in the garden this week. Partly because it was neglected due to our trip across the U.S. to visit sons and granddaughters. I always hate to leave home. I don’t like leaving those dear labradoodles to which we have become very attached. […]
What a lucky bunch of gardeners we are! Fifteen of the San Luis Obispo Master Gardeners were taken by van to “Camp Hill”, hilltop home of Hearst Castle and guest houses. The intent of the tour was to show us progress of the renovation of the two original greenhouses used by Hearst employees.
The Lord […]
Accessories Add Color
I’m not big on garden accessories. I believe that they detract from the plantings. I think that too many trinkets tend to make a garden look cluttered. Now I am rethinking my belief and amending it.
