On a recent cold and drizzly May afternoon, in our raincoats and boots, my son and I took a walk around our boring neighborhood. I'm lucky that I get to take walks with a 2 year old. I get to realize that our neighborhood's not so boring afterall. Especially when it's raining.

When I first started shooting, at the age of seven, I was a still-life photographer. The blown out part in the center is a Shaun Cassidy album. Clearly didn't understand flash back then, or music for that matter.
The painters are now gone and the house looks beautiful. It's the garden that I need to get busy "rebuilding." The painters actually did a good job of not trampling on everything, I'm surprised, so I think I can get things back on track quickly. I started with a simple (very simple, Willow branches) trellis for a clematis that climbed a birdbath last year, which it outgrew. So I'm trying this. And I added about 250 tulip, hyacinth, narcissus etc. bulbs to the garden last Fall. This is my favorite: Princess Irene. I didn't realize it would be so beautiful! They're scattered among Lily of the Valley and white Bleeding Hearts. They play nicely together. (No, I'm not trying to bore you. Really, I'm not trying to, I just am.)
