Baby Blue Jay

This is Silver, a little crippled blue jay, being hand raised by my girlfriend Julie.  Here he's expectantly waiting  for his 3 x daily dose of worms, freshly dug from her compost.

Purple Veggies

Sunday is Farmer's Market day.  Off I go again to buy my "vengetabels".  That's what my daughter used to call them, when she was little.  Because she hated them with a vengeance...

Green Water

Rocks carved by the creek, below the village.  The water is green with algae because it's summer.

We have old wooden houses, where Mother Mary and Krishna watch out over the John.

Caged Garden

Topanga gardens have fences on all sides, above and below to keep out the ravenous veggie predators:  Bunnies, squirrels, birds, coons, coyote, and deer in all shapes and sizes.

Organic Veggies

The Sunday Farmer's Market in Encino has my favorite veggie growers, providing the goods.  Here's fresh, crispy, juicy abundance from the Given's Farm in Goleta.  http://www.johngivensfarm.com/index.html

Creek-side Trail

Nothing much to see here, but dappled shade, a bit of water and mother nature, at Cold Creek Cyn.

Ancient Oaks

Back from my 10 day sojourn with the ancient ones.  =)
Someone mentioned that it takes these oaks 300 years to grow, another 300 years to mature, followed by 300 years of decline.
