blackberry-lime sorbet with a sprig of fresh mint
homemade, all natural, and utterly fresh

'nuff said

i love the sounds they make
at all hours of the day.
and how they stop and start again
as i walk by

it was a day full of angels
and blue skies
(and brownies with extra fudge icing...)

Happy Birthday Diahn

somebody has a birthday today
I was so excited I bypassed the cake and went straight for the icing shot

p.s. the candle got lit, but photos of lit candles (and, presumably, fire in general) are harder than I realized. I need practice...

is there a fruit more perfect than the lime?

i don't cut my dead flowers back either.
but not because of the birds.
just because i think they are still beautiful...

blackberries are one of those foods that you might not want to look at too closely
(even though, personally, I think they are absolutely gorgeous)

they may look a little more appetizing if you step back and blur your eyes just a bit...yeah, like that... just a little bit
