Berkeley Rose Garden
As we wandered among the flowers formally dressed young people began arriving at the Berkeley Rose Saturday afternoon. A wedding perhaps, but why so many brides? Finally I asked one of the many photographer-moms and found it was a prom photo shoot. What a good idea better the dropping your kid off at the gym for an expensive photo that I may never see. The kids were having fun but the aunts and uncles, moms and dads were glowing with pride and joy to be able to share this moment. Which Way? A new way I hope will become a well warren stone path.
PS The Berkeley Rose Garden is a beautiful stone WPA project with many interesting stone paths going this way and that. A great place for the Which Way Challenge.

San Francisco’s Castro District’s new rainbow crosswalks.
Tilden Parks WPA stone terraced path at Native Plant Garden.
Old or new, town or country, curved or straight: these paths lead somewhere interesting. Which one would you prefer?

Can there be too many pink fluffy cloud sunsets?
All this week people have been asking each other “Did you see the sky last Friday?” This is not just happening here in Northern California I saw a post from Colline in Canada with images of a similar sunset. Seems to be Mother Nature’s way of saying to all of us there is an even bigger picture then the ones we see on the small screens. Nurturing beauty is all around when we take time to notice.
What uplifting gift have you received this week?

One of the biggest surprises for me about Mexico City was that everywhere you looked there are statues, monuments, fountains and garden art; sacred and profane.This is just a sample. I am not a fan of big cities, since I am at heart a country girl, but after visiting Mexico City I understand the fascination.
Truth be told I like living at the edge of a city so I can get out into wilderness quick but visit the city for fun once in a while. I doubt if I would do well as and an Alaskan homesteader.
After yesterday’s post of street people of Berkeley I’m include a photo of beautiful statues from a yard in Berkeley.
Happy Street people of Berkeley
Which do you prefer city or country life?

My kitchen table farm.
Meet Mr. and Mrs Salt Pig and their friend Butter the cow pitcher.
These friendly faces greet me at breakfast and often watch over me as I write my blog. The Pig family has been with us a very long time. Their origin story varies from date and place, depending on who tells it, but I am sure I bought them, as a reward, for myself after a root canal. Butter is new to us, she belonged to our dear neighbor who moved away this summer and put thing out on the curb for anyone to pick over. I was overjoyed to claim this lovely cow as memento of our years of friendship. The Pigs welcomed her with big smiles!
The origins the peach sugar bowl and chicken butter dish are complete mysteries but I’m happy they are part of my kitchen table barnyard.
Weekly Photo Challenge wanted me to share a bit of my daily life I hope you enjoyed this peek into my world. What’s on your kitchen table you love?
