A sampling of some recent landscape-ish images from my pinterest and my other blog (that tumblr one) which actually gets updated and is somehow GOOP approved. Why landscape-ish? I’ve been feeling guilty about the general lack of landscaping progress at the house as well as my general lack of blogging on this blog. Also been filled with shame by the knee high weeds which have taken over most of our property. Today two separate garden entrepreneurs stopped by with their lawn mowers and offered to mow down the weeds for $5.

Things have gotten pretty bad.

Landscaping? Next year? Here be some fire to light under some ass.

    Mowing lawns, weeding, getting poison ivy…I don’t miss it! I now live in a high rise condo, so the only landscaping I do is on my small balcony filled with houseplants.

    i gotta say it. you are one of the best bloggers of all time (except for the not blogging part). I selfishly (and ignorantly of whatever else you do) hope you get your groove back. love from the universe. L

    The green tree on the left side of the second photo is rad. Our neighbor has one she said she bought at Johnny’s Nursery in San Timoteo Canyon/Redlands. She said she got it small for $80 and it grew quickly and to not waste the $200 for the larger ones. {If you’re actually thinking of getting one!}

    Love the site.
    About the weeds. I have an acre up in the hills in highland.
    I get them BAD every year right before spring.
    I seem to win with a back pack sprayer, ( $40 harbor freight tools, usually $100 + everywhere else )
    and concentrated weed killer,
    ( $100 walmart- not the pre-mixed stuff )
    works like a charm.
    Kills em all year till nex year.
    But you gotta get em before they grow too big and flower.
    Once they flower. Well, you’ll get babies coming soon after.
    You may have to spray a few more times.
    I quite enjoy winning that battle.

    The way the natural light accents the room in the last photo is unreal – so warm and soothing. Also love the shot of the off-kilter rows of yellowish cacti…tried to click through to learn about the artist but Instagram requires a web login (don’t have it) to explore. It’s a beautiful shot – who takes credit on that one?

    Fighting back jealousy. I’d be happy with somewhere to put just one hammock. Ahh well, one day
