Trees and Mammoths

I was lying in the hammock in my garden looking a the sky late this afternoon. The weather has been beautiful lately, and I'm trying to make sure I get some hammock time. When I look up I can see 5 kinds of tree over me, plum trees, an acacia tree, a 40 fool tall avocado (fruitless unlike the plums) and couple of smaller anonymous trees.

Some people grow vegetable and some grow flowers, mostly I grow trees and then shape them in modest ways to create a total visual. The shaping is invisible and very subtle. The garden looks natural and even a little wild in places. I do grow flowers,encourage wild flowers an occasionally vegetables but mostly it's trees.

I'm looking at 5 pieces of Mammoth ivory, 3 of which just arrived from my lapidary. I've been wanting to work with them for a while but I needed the 3 more pieces. Their shape is almost ribbon like. I'm still not sure what I'm going to do with them and they are beautiful to just look at right now.

Somehow, that reminds me of a time when I was helping make a supper in San Francisco, making the salad, and I went out to the back of the back yard to pick some nasturtiums to garnish the salad, and freaked the heck out of the guy whose house I was in . . .
