Check out this monster fungi growing under a tree in the neighborhood!
I treated myself to these gorgeous flowers last weekend from a booth at a local open air shopping/dining center. Only $10! Can't beat that! As I walked around with them in my arms, so many people either smiled or exclaimed, "such beautiful flowers!" It made me (a) want to own a flower booth, and (b) walk around with flowers all the time to make people smile.
Finally got a little herb garden going! Basil and sage in this pot. Pesto, here I come!
I feel the need to note how disappointed I am in the voters of North Carolina who supported Amendment One, AKA the Marriage Amendment. It's a shame when personal opinions and beliefs are used as weapons to take rights away from people who mean no harm.
