the things she left behind:

a sony camera,
a pocket full of yellow m&ms,
two books,
chocolate covered pomegranate seeds,
the story of her life-
all accidental...

and then, 
on purpose,
a snail under the parsley plants
with a message on its belly...
"i'll try to hurry back"

dear little snail, 
how can we possibly wait that long?

every which way one turns

at walker farm in dummerston, vermont

what treasures await gardeners 

(and their non-gardening, camera-toting companions, too)

on an adventure to isabelle's lavender farm in jacksonville, vermont,

 we found a planted heap with a rat hood ornament,
 a fragrant blur of green,
and a half-blind dog walking down the road.

a very good adventure indeed.

lemon custard

what would you make with it?

(i made a blueberry-lemon cheesecake in a graham cracker crust)

to make a poem

begin with rain-pearled light,
stir in pennants of delicate petals,
season with a curious cat and a level cup of polished wood.
simmer all morning until the scent of earth rises with the steam.
to serve, spoon into cut-glass bowls.

at the train station

 this couple accidentally locked themselves out of their car
 despite the heroic efforts of a very kind officer, the key-fishing expedition proved unsuccessful
until mr. brattcat suggested flipping over the key fob and pressing the unlock button.
what a sweet sound as the locks released.

theme day: tranquility

oh to be a cat
on a weathered porch step
napping through the afternoon
