Ice Ice Baby

Did you know I take photos of ice machines? I do! They are all a little bit different, believe it or not...

See? The same, yet different! 

A shout-out to my mom, who is suffering through the 117-degree heat in Phoenix today...

Fun with Effects

Lord knows peonies don't need any special effects, but since I've probably bored everyone with peony photos, I present: "Fun with Effects."

These are most likely the last peonies of the season, alas--enjoy!

Jack and the Dahlia Stalk

Remember this (taken on May 10)? Look at it now! And there are several buds, too (and some aphids, which I must blast off tomorrow).

(Alas, the other two tubers have not!).

Quilty Goodness

This is a lovely soft and faded quilt--alas, it's also QUITE ripped up so I will be selling it as a "cutter" quilt. All hand sewn, pretty pastel floral much work! Hats off the the quilters of yore.

Just Because You Can...

This was billed as "deconstructed lemon meringue pie" (it was the dessert at an event--I did not/would not order this).

Um, no: pie is sort of a perfect thing, right, with centuries of bakers making pies. Why mess with it? My English mother-in-law would refer to this as looking like "a dog's dinner." Blergh.

Tallulah-Palooza Friday

Elder dog shenanigans...she was standing under this table and seemed unable to figure out how to get out from under it (frowny face). When you are 14 years old, you're allowed to stand under tables!

Why not? (Spotted on a telephone pole...)

Baby Pom

We had so many flowers on the pomegranate tree this year, but alas, many of them dropped off (not sure why). There is fruit forming, though...yay!

Above and Beyond

 These succulent cuttings have been on the potting bench for about six weeks now...and they are blooming, even though they are, well, cut! Amazing...
