Spreading The Word - Scotland

You should know your local farmer...even in the U.K.! My friend sent these to me after recently visiting England and Scotland. Thank you!

Stirling Bridge in Scotland
Westminster Abbey in London, England.

So, where has your "Who's Your Farmer?" shirt been?

Into the Light

I was flipping through the latest issue of Organic Gardening Magazine one day last week, when I happened upon an article about garden photography. It suggested shooting into the sunlight early in the morning. I had never thought of this, and couldn't wait to try it. So yesterday morning while I was picking lettuce and green onions, I kept an eye on the sun, waiting for just the right time. Just as I saw it peeking over the trees, I grabbed my camera and started shooting. I discovered pretty quickly that I needed to switch to manual mode because the photos were under-exposed. The result? Some of the best garden shots I've ever taken! Here are just a few. I may post more later, if I have time.

I'm so happy that my sunflowers are finally blooming!

And lest I bore you with garden photographs, here are some people.

Jacob is saying, "If I were at a Mexican concert, I'd yell, 'Pollo Para No Dinero!'"
Speaking a little Spanish is sometimes worse than speaking none. Can any of y'all guess what he meant? :D
It was so funny that we laughed about it all morning.

Okay, so I need to work on self-portraiture now. ;)
