Lily of the Garden
Space is pretty limited in Santa Monica; the community gardens have five-year waits. Through a friend, we got hooked up with a program in Santa Monica whereby you can have a garden in the yard of a homeowner who has the space but not the inclination for gardening. . . . In our case, we are gardening part of a double lot, a huge backyard, where the homeowner is also gardening while occasionally dipping into our produce. Lily loves to wander the giant yard, sniffing things out as she goes . . . and racing to me with her helicopter tail going, when I realize I can't see her and get concerned enough to call her. Then she's off again to explore some more.
