Joshua Tree National Park

What a WONDERFUL park. My friend, Linda, and I had an amazing time exploring this beautiful place. And the weather was wonderful as well. Very inspiring as well as challenging landscape. The view and perspective on the San Andreas fault was a really phenomenal aspect of the whole thing.

Sleep in a Sphere

1 Sphere Beckons 2.JPG What a fantastic experience.. sleeping and meditating and reading and whatever ! in a sphere hung in a tree.. it was even  better than I imagined.. and talk about surround sound.. LOL.  Doesn’t it look inviting?  This one is called EVE and she is for one person (or two small and very compatible people).  There are larger ones available.

The wind and the rain caused no problem… the sphere is anchored to more than one tree which dampens out the effect of the trees moving.  (Of course if you jump around you can feel it swing.).

It would be great to have one of these at home for a meditation room, extra guest bedroom.  Click on any picture to see the whole Picasa album of pictures.                                             1 Sphere Beckons 3.JPG

He does make them for sale (each a custom job, as you can imagine.)  The album shows one that is in process.. along with some steps already made for some custom installation.  Click here for the Free Spirit Spheres web site to find out more.

Located in Qualicum Beach, BC.

Beaver Attack

Is there something wrong with our apple tree?

We have a house on a small lake in Washington State.   This spring we noticed our apple tree was not leafing out.

Yes .. definitely beaver teeth made those marks

On closer inspection… hmmm.. could be a beaver…. YES YES, a Beaver

Seems he had good access from the lake and the small branches of the apple tree are a BEAVER DELICACY.

Sorry , this tree is not going to be a survivor and the beaver never came back to finish it off.

I don’t think there were any winners this time around. Except maybe the gardening store when we buy something to replace it.
