i can’t get enough of today’s favorites. aren’t they great? they’ve made me really happy this week.

last night, after watching a great baseball game, i went up to the roof to water my plants. with nothing but the bright moonlight illuminating everything, i gave each thirsty plant a drink. and then i sat in the hammock underneath that moon and listened to the sounds of the neighborhood, until it was time for bed.

and this morning, for breakfast, i ate the most aromatic apricot from this week’s CSA share, and a few small plums that tasted like a deep wine. now, i’m eating blueberries and thinking about making these over the weekend. tomorrow, a pool party with friends.

august, i am liking you very much.

enjoy your weekend!

    Love these images. And yes, I agree. August is particularly lovely this year (perhaps because of all of July’s rain?)

    your groupings make me happy. it is cloudy today and after a busy weekend i’m grateful for the slower pace and the time spent inside. hope your weekend was nice.

    Can you put together a book of your favorite images? If they’re anything like this, I’d be first in line to get one.
