Im Wald mit Schlapphut, und "Gardenarbeit!"

With a friend, in the forest, about 20 min away from where I live. Lots of forests in the mountains behind Santa Cruz.



Me, mit Schlapphut.



I wear the Schlapphut when I garden. This is my backyard, that is Lily over there in the back, see her reading? Thats my German bike in the foreground, and some odd box.




Thats me with Schlapput gardening at a friend's. We put in a lemon tree, a lime tree, and an avocado. That was only about 2 weeks ago.


My front yard.



A photo from the side. Two different kinds of grapes and kiwis grow on this trellis.

As you can see, I enjoy wearing my Schlapphut. And just like my ancestor Meeker, I derive satisfaction from the fruits of the earth! My own.....Fountain Green....

Beth! Hier schneit's im Moment! Aber nicht genug, um einen Schneemann bauen zu können.
I like the photo of you with your shadow thrown up against the wall. And your Schlapphut is super!

Those schlapphuts are really multi purposeful!

From where in Germany do you originate? Curious, because I'm Dutch and lived for a year in Berlin.
Nice yards you have! Santa Cruz, I've been told that many artists live there.

My Dad was born and raised in Berlin so I have visited there many times as a child. Interestingly, I went to U.C. Santa Cruz for my college education. Thanks for showing the beauty of Santa Cruz.
