gardenfantic-the main paths are pea gravel on top of 6 inches of sand-plants love seeding in that-the other paths are manufactured stone in various shapes which allow for curves-and yes the sun ordinarily shines every day all day from april until october

how the garden looked on the day i got home. sobering but comforting that the garden does so well in my absence. of course the sweet friends who watered and watched while i was gone are beyond praise. the weather here in reno was wonderful and it looks as though things improved in the u.k. hostas absolutely flawless even sieboldiana and jade cascade.

grain amaranth for dinner tonight-don't think a. caudatus which i grow is the same-tasty in an odd way but perhaps an acquired taste-from the same part of south america as quinoa. tomorrow the kaibab plateau and grand canyon and then home to the garden.
