These poppies come up every year...they were part of a mystery seed mix that I bought at the Museum of Gardening in London about 15 years ago. So ephemeral...they only last about two days, then the papery petals fall off and the seed pod (above) is left. It dries out and tiny holes open around the edges and the teeny black peppery seeds then fall out and are scattered.

Yolk Lore

A double-yolk egg! It apparently only happens once in 1,000 eggs, and in most cultures, it's considered good luck. Some also believe that it means impending pregnancy--if that happens to me, call the Pope because it would be a true miracle!

And a funny-looking large green egg, too--nah, just fooling (it's an odd avocado [odd-o-cado?], actually, with such a teeny pit). This is actually a picture of lunch! Yum!

Tallulah-Palooza Monday

Holiday Monday means bonus Tallulah! Enjoy!

P.S. It also means ice cream was consumed. It's the law--in our household, in any case.

Tallulah-Palooza Friday

Tallulah Mae. Cauliflower. Tallulah Mae eating cauliflower. Enjoy.

Travelogue Thursday: Florence: Capitolo Tre: Battiporta

Even the door knockers in Florence are cool... (There a few things here that aren't door knockers, but they are on doors...).

A Handful of Fun

Fun with mannequin hands! I like how in the second photo they look as if they're playing a piano. (These were taken in response to an Etsy email--I really wasn't simply playing with them--I'm not THAT weird!)

Sun, Down

Gorgeous sunset--we've been having winter-like weather (well, more or less--don't throw eggs at me, those of you who live where there is REAL winter), so why not a winter-like setting sun? 

P.S. Taken with a new camera! has many bells and whistles yet to be explored (and no black dirt flecks in the sky, yay!)
