Rural decay update

In 2006, I took this photo and named it “Nature always wins.”

Friday Flower: Nostalgia edition

I’ve been in Nashville three years now and I still miss growing my own flowers. There’s nothing keeping me from it, really, except time and money. I’m real short on both these days. Some day I hope to get back to having my own little flower beds and array of potted beauties that will collect the morning dew and sit still while I point my camera at them in the early morning light.

At least I get to hang out and get close to the lovelies in my mom’s garden when I visit. Remember the Friday Flower feature I used to post here ages ago? Here’s an honorary addition, thanks to a trip to Saltillo last weekend:

This little dude was just hanging out on the knob of the rocking chair the other day.

This guy has been doing art installations in which he gives leaves unconventional shapes. Truly inspiring work.
