Leaf Art

Lovely nasturtium leaves making a break for freedom from the other side of this fence. Amazing round foliage...

This ultra-cool car was in traffic next to us--low-rider coolness! The driver lowered the back and then the front. Love!

Red Moon

Like millions of others, we stood outside last night for about an hour watching the lunar eclipse. Just beautiful!

My photos are not wonderful, but they're not bad for a Canon Elph with no tripod...if I do say so myself! They're kinda atmospheric...

Tallulah-Palooza Friday

I kiss her about 1,000 times a day...I think you can see why. Smooches, Miss Mae!

Roses in the Sunshine

I love how the sun is spotlighting these beauties...and I also love how something took a big bite out of the bottom rose. That's fine, I don't mind sharing--hope it was tasty!

Candy Is Dandy

Eye candy (and candy candy): taffy. I love the IDEA of taffy but do not like the taste of it. Go figure.

Have always been and will always be fascinated by the moon...

Today would have been my brother's 58th are loved, big bro, and you are missed terribly.

Trug Love

 There was some good estate saling this weekend (ahem). One of my purchases was this lovely metal trug. Love it! A great price, as well.
Trug Inspector Tallulah Mae at work... (a bad angle--she looks quite chubby here, which she really is not!).

 Soft and delicate...
...from hard and spiky.

Mother Nature!

Why Not?

Is it wrong that this was my lunch today? Hey, it was good for me: kombucha + banana = nutritious! (Right?)

Old School

Check out this vintage gas it!

Reminds me of road trips in the Country Squire, listening to the Fifth Dimension on the eight-track...

Pizza + Beer = Yes Please

Home-made pizza (I made the crust, B. did the rest) and a yummy dark beer make for a mighty fine meal, enjoyed while continuing our binge-a-thon of "Game of Thrones." We're almost through Season 3--two more to go!

Hello there, Miss Tallulah Mae!
What's so funny?

Avian Visitor

It's been a while since we've had a backyard bird post...there haven't been nearly as many birds in our yard this year, for some reason (boo!).

I think this is a mockingbird (white bands under wings?), but I'm not sure. It was making one call, a loud short "chirrup" sound, not the crazy serenades we think of when we think "mockingbird." Perhaps this is a female?
