Avant-Gardening: Creative Organic Gardening - Xeriscape gardens
In xeriscaping, plants are grouped into three specific zones based upon the water needs of the plants and the distance from the central area. Zoning creates a water-efficient landscape that is both beautiful, functional, and sustainable. The physical characteristics of the site should be considered. Every yard has a "micro-climate" which could affect the design and plant choices. Sunny west and south sides of a house will have a warmer micro-climates and are more suited for arid, drought-tolerant plants. The cooler north and east sides could be used for oasis zones.

Hale Wainiha
Tucked away on over an acre of lush paradise along the Wainiha Stream in a grove of 100 ft. tall mango trees lies the "Hale Wainiha" (Wainiha Cottage). Offering privacy, rest and refreshment, this charming home overlooks a gorgeous view of the river valley with neighboring taro farm and spectacular vistas of distant mountains. The large yard meanders down to 200' of private stream, feel free to take a refreshing dip. This lush valley is a serene retreat, nourishing the soul with nature’s greatest beauty while offering the modern comforts of home and convenience to all the island's best activities, the perfect spot for your romantic adventure holiday.

The house is centrally located on Kauai’s majestically beautiful north shore between Hanalei and the Napali Coast. Within a couple of miles are four of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Closest is Lumaha’i Beach with its long deep stretches of soft sand broken by picturesque protrusions of lava rocks creating dramatic ocean breaks. Tunnels beach has an amazing reef and offers the best snorkeling on the island, also surfing and amazing views. At the end of the road is dramatic Ke’e beach. Besides it’s great snorkeling, this is the gateway to the Napali Coast offering many spectacular hikes. Just 5 miles away is Hanalei Bay with its pristine beaches and perfect surf. The quaint town of Hanalei offers interesting shops and world class dining. My personal favorites are Baracuda and the Dolphin. You can rent Kayaks up the Hanalei River, go horseback riding on the Princeville Ranch, take a yoga class or just relax on a private beach. You’ll never have to leave this magical corner of the island.

jQuery Form Plugin
From the fine folks who brought us the jCycle plugin.
"The jQuery Form Plugin allows you to easily and unobtrusively upgrade HTML forms to use AJAX. The main methods, ajaxForm and ajaxSubmit, gather information from the form element to determine how to manage the submit process. Both of these methods support numerous options which allows you to have full control over how "the data is submitted. Submitting a form with AJAX doesn't get any easier than this!

jQuery Google Feed Plugin
From the fine folks who brought you the jcycle plugin. "On April 16th, 2007, Google announced the Google AJAX Feed API. This is a pretty cool thing as it facilitates feed mashups by providing the server component. This means that developers can easily mash feeds on the client by simply including Google's new API script. And Google has provided a nice Developer's Guide which shows how to get started.
To simplify this even more for jQuery developers, I've created a small plugin which performs the task of unobtrusively converting an element, such as an <a>, into a <div> element which holds feed content.

Update: On May 8th, Google announced the Feed Control. As a result, this plugin has been updated (and simplified!) to use the new Google control."

Designed by Jessica Hische, it’s a versatile roman, modeled after a cornucopia of 19th century samples with the inclusion of, as Ms Hische puts it, “Some special swashy characters!” It’s perfect for (again borrowing from Ms Hische), “Weddings, snobby cocktail menus and anything remotely old-fashioned.”
