I’m just a blogging fool today. That’s because I should be cleaning and running errands and packing before my trip.

Here’s what’s blooming in my front yard right now. Had gone out to check the mail and couldn’t resist grabbing my camera.

Emily rarely smiles for the camera. In fact, she rarely sits still for the camera. It’s difficult to get good pictures of her because the moment she knows you’re paying attention to her, she jumps down and starts rubbing against your leg. When I was photographing poppies this morning, she bit me to get my attention.

Poppies and Ixia, both of which get by on natural rainfall
