My buddy, Spike

This was my charge while my parents frolicked off the coast in Hawaii. He followed me to the vegetable garden and would watch me from the shade of a potted blueberry bush or the scraggly dwarf lemon bush. During the night he would leave his bed and end up on mine. He loved licking my chin!!!

Salad Table & Garden

on the far left fence the rhubarb is already ready to be picked, green plants in the center on the right are arugula plants that were planted in October, still very edible, though
transplanted lettuce plants and sugar snap peas in center , blueberries on the left/rear and a blueberry in the terracotta colored pot in the rear,
chest high salad table.. inspired by a friend in WI and built with the help of Sal (the box and sawhorses), Mike (the screens in the bottom) and Tom (for helping me use a level) One of my goals 5 weeks ago was to complete this project before I departed. Thanks to so many helpers it is now in place.
This was so easy to sow seeds in. The perfect height.

The Adventure Begins

Preparation for the long awaited trip to the Islands involved lots of drivers, packers, assistants, and patience... but the group is airborne as I type. Photos taken at 6:40 am.

Out to Lunch Again

Altho my Oriental Brush Painting class is no longer being held... some of us got together to share lunch. The teacher is on the far right in the front row.


Out to Lunch

My nephew, the policeman, took my parents and me out to lunch. My other nephew, the bean-counter, met us there. Dad certainly enjoyed his chocolate milkshake. We had a great time.
