June Flower Bed

Climbing rose and clemetis (not in the flower bed, I know)

I rode Jackson for a short while this morning.  He was a bit lethargic and sore but I think it was from his exuberant antics yesterday more than anything.  I didn't push it, just worked him in a nice relaxed frame, practiced our corners, and a bit of leg yield from center line to the quarter line to confirm his understanding of inside leg to outside rein. 

Brett and I went down the mountain for yoga and had another great class.  Afterwards we went to lunch in San Juan Capistrano.  We sat on the patio in the coastal sunlight and watched people going by.  It felt like vacation: our bodies mellow and relaxed from yoga, the warm sunshine on our skin, and the tourists making their way down the street to the mission. 

After evening chores, we sat on the patio with a glass of wine and discussed sprinklers (which are working and which aren't) and fencing for trees in the goat area.  We went by PetCo to get puppy pens and they are ludicrously expensive ($100 each for a four foot tall one).  So, its back to the drawing board.


  1. ok, I'm back at the drawing board. see you in the morning.

  2. How about a roll of American wire?
    Your gardens look beautiful!
