i spent half the day gardening and the other half taking pictures. i planted two rows of peas and a row of carrots, then filled a mini-greenhouse tray with cucumbers, lettuce, spinach, oregano...and a ton of other things i can't even remember now. i also started red peppers in little pots.
my bike ride was overwhelming. i was getting so overstimulated by the gorgeousness of everything that it was actually slightly uncomfortable at times. in some cases there was too much beauty to capture in a normal photo so i had to make some panoramas...
i really super enjoy vertical panoramas.
no leaves on the trees by the river yet...getting close though.
this ladybug was taking a drink of water out of this flower:
the way these blooms bunch together reminds me of fancy pink-dyed poodle tails:
