small pleasures along the road of life.
i spotted this monarch caterpillar munching on some milkweed, not in my garden alas, but that will come soon enough. for now i will study the others i happen upon.
seaside gardens! who knew? i never knew of its existence until this, my 959th visit to carpinteria. it is splendid! you must go. you must. you will! it’s a nursery, but also has beautiful gardens. more on my visit in an upcoming post.
for now, let me open the door to my hideaway and get unpacked.
the air is cool, the stars are bright, the trees are tall.
i have mischief to make.
