Japanese moss gardens are soooo pretty!

I like live walls too.

I have seen really pretty pallet gardens too. Put them upright and you have a really cool living privacy fence.

I agree with this author on many points.
"Alone Together: Why we expect more from technology and less from each other" by MIT technology and society professor Sherry Turkle.

She seems most upset by the banalities of electronic interaction, as our range of expression is constrained by our gadgets and platforms. We aren’t “happy” anymore: we’re simply a semicolon followed by a parenthesis. Instead of talking on the phone, we send a text; instead of writing wistful letters, we edit our Tumblr blog.

I'm sure you'll find the same is true.

I'll look up Spotify. Never heard of it. Thanks.

@ Petra.

I hear ya.

Am I the only person who feels guilty for loving tropical fruit so much? Or French cheeses? Or Italian wines?
Once I bought my dad a loaf of bread for his birthday...... from a Parisian bakery!!

I know I should eat more local but I'd get pretty tired of cabbage by mid winter.
