Garden / Sculpture Inspiration
A couple of weeks ago, knowing that I love sculpture, gardens, and especially sculpture IN gardens, my friend Pati took me to visit David Turner's garden and studio. David is both a sculptor and a landscaper, and his garden is full of beautiful and interesting plants and objects to be discovered. (click on any image to enlarge)
In his landscape designs, David favors low-water-need plants perfect for our (Nor. Cal.) environment, and though he doesn't have a website, if you e-mail me, I'm sure I can put you in touch with him!

Happy Birthday Jan !!!
A full week late, but none the less heartfelt!
(Jan is my mom, FYI)
At left seen with my Grandpa Del, (her dad) as a tot, and then with brother Brock, when in her early 20's.
My stepdad, Larry, has taken on the heroic task of assembling a photographic geneology chart as a keepsake book for my Grandmother's upcoming 90th birthday celebration, so I have been enjoying re-visiting some of these images as I try to improve them in photoshop...

Good Morning! photos
Sorry, haven't been too bloggy lately! Just busy, painting and so on...
But the garden is in it's summery glory... seems sometimes it goes into a heat-induced sulk, and there *are* some dry & straggly moments here & there, but plenty of blooming.
In early spring, I feel much more bothered by inadvertant color clashes in the garden-- but by this time, it's like 'oh, what the hell. The more the merrier'.
