I think it's about time to share a few of my vacation pictures...so here they are. (This batch, anyway.) There are more...plants, scenery, more plants, different scenery...but I think I'll save some of them for Eye Candy Friday (look for a button here soon).
the Winooski River, a few miles away from my parents' house
a tiger lily, in the [my dad's] front garden
obedient plant and a ladybug, on the other side of the driveway
trees in the backyard: grey birch, striped maple, copper beech
purple meadowrue, sort of under the trees
Also note that I changed the color scheme again. I was getting awfully tired of the "hey, look! it's spring!" one...that mood doesn't hold up very well in the sweltering heat that is a Philadelphia summer. At least it was gorgeous out today. And I had lunch outside, even if I did spend much of my afternoon in a dark, windowless room. Oh, and the photo from which I derived the new title bar is from the path by the Winooski River.
