Giving thanks



Thank you to everyone who expressed concern following Sunday's earthquake. We are all safe and feel fortunate to have not had much real damage. Our thoughts are with those who fared worse, and our sincere thanks go out to the first responders who worked to restore safety at risk of their own.

Berry good times


We're still going like crazy with all kinds of summer beauty that I can't wait to share once time allows. Until then, here are some fun little arrangements including strawberries, zinnias, and carnations from Napa (thank you, Hudson Ranch for planting so many beautiful carnations!!) and garden roses from Santa Rosa.

Summer abundance


Last night we enjoyed the company of Ben's uncles, who brought beautiful flowers and delicious herbs from their garden, a perfect complement to Ben's roast chicken (he did it on the grill!), tomato salad (made with Big Ranch Farm loot!) and boiled new potatoes (from my god mother's garden!).  Lately I've felt surrounded by abundance of all kinds - good work, beauty, love, produce - and I feel so lucky.
