The Garden of Eden

Elements essential in Museville

-a climbing rose -
ingredients of simple perfection in the yard to me.

The shade of an ancient olive tree
Soft dappled sunlight warming crushed river rocks
The perfect setting for lunch with friends


olive branches
creeping fig
a touch of purple
a seat for two to watch the sun set

Torrey Pines
Sultry sea air
the warm glow of candlelight
and dinner under the stars.

It doesn't get much better.
