newest volunteer... this is just 1/3 of the print shop. The whole set-up is managed by a man who used to own his own print shop. He's very knowlegable and detail oriented. He reminds me of the gentleman in Arcata, CA, who taught me the fine art of letterpress printing, Lewis A. Pryor. It's been a long time since I've worked around letter presses, but so far its been fun!!!

Even with no water in the pictures these shots bring calm to my soul.... I only stayed an hour today
as the ocean was filled with seaweed and I was playing cards with my friends at 7:00. Ted, you will notice that the pavillion is brand new. I will take more shots another time.

A woman in my swimming class mentioned that she had a tree that was dropping flowers by the bushel. She described the flowers as looking like camilias and I knew right away that it was a tree I have long admired. In fact we were going to plant one in our yard, but they were outrageously priced. My classmate will give me a baby for free (tree, that is). I am researching where it would survive/provide shade for our house.... and where we would see it to enjoy it..... In the fall the leaves are spectacular.... it is just a beautiful tree!!!
One cucumber plant that will hopefully climb over the wire panel behind it, down the other side, then sprawl on the hedge. Maybe the hungry rabbits will miss all the cucs. Already I have critters digging holes in the pot. Ted's job is to keep this lonely guy alive and happy!!!
These three pots are outside our living room in the back of the apt. (You can see the wall for the underground driveway in the background.) In this gravely patch of no-dirt I have seen rabbits, baby bunnies, chipmunks and birds. We'll see if the chicken wire around the pot on the left does any good in detering them.
Another way to plant in a container. This planter is the same shape as a bag of manure, except that it has three openings on the top and drain holes on the bottom. Not sure if this will survive all the hungry four footed friends.
