"The single greatest lesson the garden teaches is that our relationship to the planet need not be zero-sum, and that as long as the sun still shines and people still can plan and plant, think and do, we can, if we bother to try, find ways to provide for ourselves without diminishing the world. "

I wish we had lots of space for a great garden in our yard. We get by some tomatoes and other goodies in a strip on the side of the house and herbs in the window box outside the kitchen. Love fresh herbs!

Carnation pink for the sixty four colors group on Flickr.
Processed with Paint the Moon actions and Florabella textures
I saw this darling scooter parked on a side street so I went to check it out. Initially, I thought it might work for carnation pink for sixty four colors but it's too light. Regardless, it was way too cute to leave unphotographed. It's the most delightful shade of cotton candy pink. And how much do I love the coordinating helmet?

I live in California now but I am a displaced New Yorker. I miss good bagels, a decent slice of pizza and the Yankees. My husband was kind enough to arrange for a babysitter so we could go to the game the other night when they came to town.
When I left the house yesterday I thought it was supposed to be a rainy day but it stayed clear. When I left the office the sky was so gloriously blue I just had to use it in my shot for the day.

The book is 101 Things You Should Do Before Your Kids Leave Home (by David Bordon and Tom Winters). Lots of fun simple things like flying a kite and having a lemonade stand. I like the message on this page.
My husband bought ladybugs for the garden (to eat the bad bugs). The kids had such a good time letting them out of the bucket.
I think my son is destined to a life of hand me down girly things. He is currently obsessed with his sister's princess scooter.
Just a snap of my oldest. A reluctant subject but she put on a smile for me
"Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books on algebra, history, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the 'creative bug' is just a wee voice telling you, 'I'd like my crayons back, please."

I found this delightful door in San Francisco's North Beach. I love the layers of pink and red, the drips, the cracks, the crooked door frame and all it's charming imperfections.
I should have done something clever for day 100. I'll have to aim for the next milestone!
My husband and I were walking around in our old neughborhood and there was this beautiful driveway covered in wisteria. The smell was intoxicating.
