I love getting up close and personal with the garden; taking things out of the landscape and focusing on texture, pattern, shadow and light, color and shape. Here are a few shots I took today. The dandelion was hard, not only cause it’s breezy today but when you look close there’s a whole universe going on in there and really how can you capture that with an iPhone!
With Valentine’s Day approaching I thought I’d so some cards to express my love of love. I don’t think the day is all about romance, although that does seem to be the main push at least commercially. But love can come in many forms and I choose to think of this day as a day not so much for lovers as for those who have a loving personality.
New Years already? How did that happen? Lately I feel like I’m always a day late, a dollar short and one Holiday behind. I’m still admiring the Christmas tree and waiting for It’s a Wonderful Life to come on. Yes, we had a little snow…
I made some soup, lentil, cause lentils are lucky for New Years. Hope you have a wonderful, celebratory New Years Eve and a great new year full of all the stuff you didn’t do this year!
Happy Holidays to all!! My favorite time of year… to stress. But seriously, you gotta just roll with the cookie dough and enjoy all the extra traffic, shopping, eating, relatives and everything else that there’s so much more of this time of year. It’s all that and a tree to decorate. These are some of my dearest Christmas tree decorations. I look forward to seeing these little friends every year. Most of them were given to us by friends and family who know us (and our X-mas tree love) all too well. Peace, love and a New Year filled with more of the same!
I’ve been spending way too much time at Almacucina, my food blog, lately. But I’m having such a good time. I have to eat anyway so why not photograph it and write down the recipe? Consider yourself invited to dinner and by that I mean read the recipes and make them yourself! You’ll find lots of great vegetarian meals as well as yummy sweets (I was a baker for 30 years after all)!
