|This was the shot I agonized about the most last time and I didn't really put much effort into it--distracted by other things I guess. Only the UO/A empire could make mold and mildew look glamorous.|
|Meyer lemons--if you've never smelled citrus blossoms before, then you really must go find some and smell them. Preferably in California. But if it's easier for you to go Terrain, then do that.|
|Sadly, my cellphone shot doesn't look dramatically worse than this.|
|My next house needs to have a greenhouse. Needs needs needs.|
The way to and from takes us by Birmingham Hill (which I'm not even sure how to describe--I can't tell if it's some kind of land trust, or historical thing, or walking trail around a historical thing. No idea). I drove by Saturday morning and saw it was covered in blue blossoms and immediately swore to come back with my camera. Thirty seconds later, I promptly forgot about it ... until I drove by with my mom on Sunday. I made her turn around and take me back because it's raining all day today and I know I'll miss this. To my surprise, she actually turned around and took me back.
|It looks like blue bonnets, but it's not ... just grape hyacinths which according to my mom were planted on purpose by somebody at some point.|
|My mom loves her a sycamore tree--funny, I can't look at these without thinking of Wyeth. It's like I think he invented them or something. (Mom, did you read this?)|
|Nothing worse than getting a blurry shot because your quads betray you and you end up shaking the camera.|
So let the week begin ... the last regular week of classes is upon me.
That went fast.
