This morning I was planning a lesson for a writing workshop and decided to use my camera to try something out. I took photos of the Paw plant, an enormous creature that was a couple of inches high two years ago when it was started from a plant that dated back to a plant grown by someone I loved, now long dead.
The Paw plant has completely taken over my den window, and I have several smaller rootlings started downstairs. A rabbit makes its home in its branches and it is in bloom right now.
The other day Kenya raced over to my bedroom window to bark furiously at the Mergansers that were trespassing. At that window I have dried wild flowers and grasses. Her excitement caused the bullrushes to explode into the room and all over her. By the time I got my camera out, she had shaken off most of her fluffiness, but here is what I managed to capture.
