It May Be Spring - Sunday 4/13/2008
Yum! Strawberries and blackberries from Costco. I've never had blackberries as sweet and flavorful as the ones they've had at Costco this year.
Desert primrose in our yard. These bloom several times during the year, never have to be deadheaded, and are drought tolerant. I want a few more of them for the slope.
The neighbor girl seemed to wonder why I was kneeling before our palm tree. Hey, I don't question the mess she made of her hair.
Up close and personal with the inedible fruit of the fan palm.
One of those weekends that make me glad to be alive and aware of my surroundings.
"I knew, of course, that trees and plants had roots, stems, bark, branches and foliage that reached up toward the light. But I was coming to realize that the real magician was light itself."
Edward Steichen (1879-1973) - A photographer whose work and philosophy I'm a little infatuated with right now--in spite of his orneriness--because I'm reading about him and seeing his work.
