and the drought goes on…….
even after rain one week ago, the days dawn bright and clear, temperatures too warm by mid-morning to work comfortably in the direct sun;
restricted to watering only twice a week, the lawn has stayed miraculously green.
rains reigns in the garden
Popcorn tree roses
and this one whose name escapes me, believe it to be spring.
Being November with daily temperatures nearing 90 degrees, the more tender light of fall consoles us;
the hedge roses near the front porch soldier on seemingly unaffected, bathing us in beauty.
our hearts are full of gratitude even as we long for rain.
Early for an appointment on the Upper East today, so decided to use the time to visit the Queen. Upper East being an area in Santa Barbara, the Queen being the Queen of the Missions – Old Mission Santa Barbara.
Pink facade and yellow and white banners were reflected in the roses just across the street in the Rose Garden

a gift of unexpected time and incredibly inspirational beauty…………..
A significant piece of what we do as designers centers on the use of color – the emotional response to the way one color compliments or highlights another, how color defines shape and dimension….. We’ve already visited color: orange and pink. Now let’s explore color, starting with my favorite: _____. Yes, white is color according to Webster’s definition number 17: ‘a color without hue at the extreme end of the scale of grays, opposite to black, that reflects light of all hues completely and diffusely.’
Some creations are just meant to be white:
monogrammed damask linen
enamel over cast iron
