“I love living in our new house!”  That’s what my husband said when I handed him freshly squeezed orange juice this morning. We’ve been here for 10 days and now that everything is pretty much where we want it (NO MORE BOXES !) we have had the opportunity to start enjoying what this place has to offer.  And boy oh boy does it has a lot of citrus!


We spent the past weekend planting our succulents, the beginnings of an herb garden and painting the patio fence.  The SoCal Contractor even made  three huge planters for the patio.



We found the perfect spot with the right combination of shade and sun for the orchids and figs will be ready in a few weeks.  Can you say edible garden?


It feels like the garden of Eden and I can promise you I won’t screw it up by planting any apple trees!
