And some images from my favorite Rodin sculptures in the gardens.
I have been applying my creative energy to my garden recently. Noticing how stressed everything was getting from our ongoing drought and water restrictions, I decided it was time to begin to remedy the situation by rebuilding soil, transitioning beds and more. Very satisfying work, despite sore muscles! The example below is one bed in transition. I took out a failing old rose, along with other plants, then mulched and composted the soil.

|Ready to mulch...|
This bed will now be a mixture of flowers and edibles. (Wondering about the cages around some of the plants? These are protection for the young plants from the local gardener squirrels who are burying acorns from a neighboring oak tree in my beds and pots!)

A new beginning! Watching how things progress over the next few months...
