it's hard to believe that looking the other direction, you see the ocean. i love california's coast.
of their gardens, this is my family's favorite. it's the kitchen garden! beyond the pond; & behind where i was standing; are fruit trees, & beds of herbs. i'll have to take more photos this summer, so you can see it in all its glory.
there is also a grape arbor,
through which friends may stroll. my first thought when i saw them was oh how sweet are they?; then i realized they were most likely plotting some great bit of mischievousness, & the moment was gone.
that's all for today. i have more to do than there are hours of daylight, so really should get to it.
~peace. ** thanks for all the hobbity birthday wishes!**
