Studio Petite captures my imagation.
The low down on Studio Petite:
(In her own words...)
I'm a published commercial freelance artist living and working out of a small studio apt. in NYC. Hence the name "Studio Petite". Random facts: I love cats and dogs equally, I have more coffee than blood running through my veins, I'm left handed, and I eat cake with a spoon;) I also adore meeting other creative hearts, or just all around beautiful souls!
Please visit Studio Petite, I know you will fall in love!

Dozer pooped. Dozer always poops. I know the arena looks poopy. We have a giant pooper spreader rake thingy, and my husband does it every week or so. It's due to be done.

Am I doing something wrong? Don't they have enough water? Sun? WHAT?? Are birds eating them?
This damn desert.
In Philadelphia, we used to have so many tomatoes we could feed the entire neighborhood. Not that I'd WANT to feed my neighbors here (not fond of my neighbor next door, one day I'll write about that), but at least I'd like to eat a tomato that I grew myself. Like in the old days.
These are squash plants. And there are some baby squashes growing. Are they going to rot too? Or get eaten?
In case you didn't see my previous post about veggie gardening - I decided to plant in pots in my courtyard - away from marauding bunnies, javelinas, etc.
Not having much luck.
My friend Cathy gave me some of these plants - and they bloom everyday, in a corner of my courtyard. My office looks out onto the courtyard. And they're propogating...yay. I have no idea what they're called.
This is my pretending to be living in Philadelphia, with 'normal' flowers blooming. Note the cactus behind them.
We do have big trees on this property - mesquite trees.
So if anybody can tell me what is happening to my tomatoes, I'll be very grateful....
