Nature, in its place, has much to recommend it and is very pretty to look at. See hydrangeas in Lori’s yard below.
This has been a splendid year for hydrangeas all around.
Lovely ones at Union Square. I do get a bit bored, however, with people who ‘love nature’ in general. I make exceptions for mosquitos, black mambas, typhoons -you get the idea.
I’m more of a Marie Antoinette sort of nature lover – would hate to be like Tess of the Durbervilles freezing miserably in a potato field – or Ivan Denysovich out in the Siberian elements.
Cosmos – again from Union Square
and salad stuff seen rather bigger than life size.
Veggies that are utterly good for you when you have finished taking photos of them
the one light yellow cosmos from last year’s seeds and some dill weed seeds – seen larger than life. The green plate from the south of Morocco.
