Art is everywhere…  Some of my favorite landscape gardeners, Patrick Turnbull and Collie Valadez, have been servicing the high end residential market in Southern California for the last 30 years. They have been involved in the design and planning, development, and care of some of the most beautiful and lovely gardens imaginable, running the spectrum from simple and green to flowers and vegetables a-plenty.

I have been lucky enough to witness and document some of their work, which you can view here.

You can also view their additional images on their website

If your sacred garden needs a magic touch, Collie and Pat are your team, so keep their info handy and Like their Facebook page!

Personal Landscaping Inc can be reached at: or via email: or phone at (818) 353-5792


WOW, wow, wow… This is one of the most amazing shows that i’ve ever seen! Not only because it’s the collection of works of James Fee – moving and rich with the print quality that i’ve not seen in a while, but also on display, two of his recently discovered notebook diaries and incredibly well narrated stories to read by Craig Krull. The Rose-Lynn Fisher work is mesmerizing as well as intriguing… What an experience!!! It’s a must see! Exhibit runs till September 1st, 2012

Dedication to all our friends, who walked this journey with us…

Peter Gabriel Don’t Give Up


“Don’t Give Up”

in this proud land we grew up strong
we were wanted all along
I was taught to fight, taught to win
I never thought I could fail

no fight left or so it seems
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
I’ve changed my face, I’ve changed my name
but no one wants you when you lose

don’t give up
‘cos you have friends
don’t give up
you’re not beaten yet
don’t give up
I know you can make it good

though I saw it all around
never thought I could be affected
thought that we’d be the last to go
it is so strange the way things turn

drove the night toward my home
the place that I was born, on the lakeside
as daylight broke, I saw the earth
the trees had burned down to the ground

don’t give up
you still have us
don’t give up
we don’t need much of anything
don’t give up
’cause somewhere there’s a place
where we belong

rest your head
you worry too much
it’s going to be alright
when times get rough
you can fall back on us
don’t give up
please don’t give up

‘got to walk out of here
I can’t take anymore
going to stand on that bridge
keep my eyes down below
whatever may come
and whatever may go
that river’s flowing
that river’s flowing

moved on to another town
tried hard to settle down
for every job, so many men
so many men no-one needs

don’t give up
’cause you have friends
don’t give up
you’re not the only one
don’t give up
no reason to be ashamed
don’t give up
you still have us
don’t give up now
we’re proud of who you are
don’t give up
you know it’s never been easy
don’t give up
’cause I believe there’s the a place
there’s a place where we belong
