    Dr. Ricardo and Teresita Silva
    10135 Bishop Lake Road West

    When Ricardo and Teresita Silva moved to Deercreek in 1999, they established good basic foundation plantings which have survived well with careful trimming. Several years ago, they purchased two oak trees through the Tree Program sponsored by Deercreek Home and Garden Club, which now frame their property with lacey shade. Each oak is encircled with a large bed, recently planted with Asiatic jasmine in the foreground, with higher variegated grasses behind.

    Dr. and Mrs. Silva have echoed the strong black of their roof with black lamps on the pillars at each side of their front door, above tall black planters. Precisely trimmed topiaries separate the garage doors on the left, with a larger topiary standing to the right of the house front. A lush bed of caladiums in the foundation planting adds a splash of color to the restrained color palette of their landscape.

    The healthy, neatly trimmed plants, pleasing symmetry, and serene, shady atmosphere make this landscape a summertime winner.

    A Tale for the Time Being

    Author: Ruth Ozeki

    Pat Boger will be hosting Deercreek's Literary Circle meeting on August 18 and Connie Davis will be facilitating the novel, A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki.

    This novel is at times quirky and humorous, combining fact and faction, past and present and engages both writer and reader.

    Ozeki describes sixteen-year-old Nao who has decided there's only one escape from her aching loneliness and her classmates' bullying. But before she ends it all, Nao first plans to document the life of her great grandmother, a Buddhist nun who has lived more than a century. A diary is Nao's only solace and will touch lives in ways she can scarcely imagine.

    Across the Pacific, we meet Ruth, a novelist living on a remote island who discovers a collection of artifacts washed ashore in a Hello Kitty lunchbox, possibly debris from the devastating 2011 tsunami. As the mystery of its contents unfolds, Ruth is pulled into the past, into Nao's drama and her unknown fate, and forward into her own future.

    A Tale for the Time Being is an inventive, beguiling story of our shared humanity and the search for home.
