Beautiful pictures - what a great view from your hill. I don't think I've ever seen an onion flower before; it's really exquisite.

Oh, your backyard is so lovely! I am thinking of making small compost.. I've red an article and found out that I could make it on my balcony. The only thing, I am concerned about is the smell... Does it stink??

Erin said...

Mmm.. yummy fresh from the ground produce! And oh, sweet agave! :)

Jennifer said...

Wow!
Thank-you so much for your responses.
I must come clean and admit that Tomory is the green thumb- and really does the majority (as in 99%) of the yard work.

Natsumi & Fuoriborgo;
We actually have a compost bin, made out of a re-used pickle barrel we found on Craig's List.
If you do it correctly, compost just smells like dirt. It shouldn't stink.

sometimes I really want to move to an other country, seeing your corner view I know why....
