I had something else in mind for today’s Ragtag Daily Prompt of Bench, and then life, with its attendant adjustments of time and commitments intervened. Instead, I’ll give you the photos I took yesterday while walking through the small arboretum near my home. A fine variety of benches, for resting, art, eating, visiting or simply […]Read More Arboretum Benches
Today’s Ragtag Daily Prompt is Color. I love the colors of the natural world; plants, rocks, clouds, water. Autumn is often spectacular with changing leaves. Owing to our long hot dry summer, followed by a rapid cooling, our colors have been somewhat muted, and many trees are rapidly going brown and then dropping their […]Read More Color

Good morning, its me, Lucy One White. So far, my farewell tour is going well. I’m doing more tour than farewell, which is good. I’m feeling better and have been busy with my usual duties of eating, drinking, sleeping, and bossing. Bossing is hard work, and my voice has gotten a little hoarse. (I’m still […]Read More Lucy: The Next Stop on My Tour
Whoa. I started blogging a year ago. When I began, I had no particular agenda or expectations. I did have the idea of sharing curiosities, odd signs and word stuff, and I liked the concept of allowing myself to follow my own curiosities, going wherever my interest was piqued. That’s reflected in the name I […]Read More Quarterly Review of Blogging #4: One Year!
Today’s Ragtime Daily Prompt is Julienne. Julienned vegetables are often also described as being cut into matchsticks. And matches can start fires.

In my life, limerence hits from time to time. I will become intrigued by an individual. These days, it often happens from afar, when I find an author whose work speaks to me. I’ll go on a binge, reading and rereading their work, studying and learning. I’ve had the experience of then meeting an author […]Read More Limerence — I Wanna Be Like You.
Today’s featured photo is of one of my young cucumber plants. Its actually the only one that has survived a combination of hail and insects.

While you’re making other plans. Or so the saying goes, along with some of its many variants, including one favored by a childhood friend. “You wanna make the gods laugh, tell them your plans.” There’s certainly been some of that going around my house recently. Illnesses, all thankfully resolved, technical glitches (likewise) and then today’s […]Read More Life is What Happens

Its June, and its going to be hot this week, predicted to hit the 90’s (32 to 35C for those of you who did go metric) every day. I don’t particularly love hot weather, so I’m not flummoxed on how to order my day. Exercise early, before the heat hits. I’m a morning person, and […]Read More Hot Stuff
Gardening requires imagination, seeing what might become sometime in the future. Seeds become seedlings and then plants; bearing food, flowers and greenery. Patterns emerge to engage the eye. Bare dirt or a weedy patch transforms. Flowers brighten the day, beckoning bees. Shade from the trees shelter even as the apples grow for later harvest. What […]Read More Gardening–Imagination in Action
