In The Kitchen With El

Last week we did a commercial for a big hotel chain. The location was a fancy restaurant in Hollywood. The objective..... the perfect cookie. We even had the father of the AD stop by to say hi. He's Peter Medak and directed Peter O'Toole in one of my favorite movies, "The Ruling Class"

Our hummingbird took a little breather in the shade of the Tipuana tree this morning.

New Additions

We got rid of the pineapple sage in the front yard to day and replaced it with Mock Heather (Ericameria ericoides). We also planted a wild lilac shrub, Dark Star Ceanothus and a buckwheat shrub, Shasta Sulphur. We also got a new butterfly sage.... only two of the ones we planted last year survived. Seems they don't like the sun quite as much as we were led to believe.

Tea Time

We recently received a six serving tea set from BFF MR while she was in Texas working. Great color and a 1910's (or maybe 1930's) look to the pieces. Trying to source it out now.... seems to be Villeroy and Boch. But date and line name are eluding us now. More sleuthing over milk, honey and cakes needed.
