New for 2010


...years ago, I bought a package of hollyhock seeds labelled "old-fashion" colors: soft pastels and some dark red. The seeds grew, the plants flowered, produced seeds of their own---and by now I've lost all the originals. But each year the descendants flower. The bees and bugs come along and pollinate the flowers and re-mix the DNA. Two years later, you see the results--nothing quite like the originals and always pretty. I'm nuts about hollylocks.

Haha--another kind of mask

One of our home grown potatoes seemed to smile at me as it was readied for cook pot.
