FINALLY, my Romanesco Broccoli is starting to grow actual crowns. Since I transplanted them into my community garden plot (from a pot behind our apartment) they’ve been growing like crazy, taking over the whole middle section of the garden. And finally I’m starting to see these! So very cool to have grown such an interesting plant from seed.

More photos as this one and others get bigger (and to pickable size).

Moments before my dog went bat-shit crazy at a horse trotting by, I was down in the dirt trying to take photos of this patch of mushrooms along the road. Seriously dude, what did that horse ever do to you??

Went driving in the country today, and stopped here along the road to capture some of the turning fall foliage.

Isaac made it his mission to catch a leaf before we left the park. Eventually, he was able to catch three.

A few spiderwebs found outside our place

I found several kinds of mushrooms growing near where we sometimes take Toby (now, I know what you’re thinking, but no dogs are allowed in the area I found the mushrooms, so no connection to their prolific growth there)

This Crusty Bread recipe is one of the easiest I’ve come across, with tasty results!

oct 20 wmI’ve made it three times now, once following the recipe exactly, once with garlic, and once with whole wheat flour (and double the yeast!)

Playing around with the pink power ranger…she’s making her big escape.

(I stopped her before she got all the way up to the deadbolt)

My favorite day of the week

November 13th, photo of the day, Peaceful Light

I’m sorry for my recent lapse in postings.

I’ve been lacking inspiration, and finding my usual fare dull and uninteresting. I need to find a way to try new things and learn new skills, but I’m not sure how or where to start. Occasionally though, I have been stirred by something to grab my camera. Such was the case here, as I was eating my dinner during a break from work. The busy road nearby was anything but calming, but the silence found in the setting sun was peaceful.

I was able to catch the sun coming through an insect’s nibbled hole in one of the last leaves of the season.
