The sun’s reflection off a mirrored building shines directly into the office, and it is blinding. Some of us jokingly wonder if it’s the rapture and why we are still here. I exaggerated the brightness in Photoshop for a more dramatic effect. I think the spot on the right is a reflection on the window of something that is behind me.
This ground cover in our backyard is popping purple everywhere!
This rainshine moment is brought to you by Klaus the Pug who requires visiting the backyard a few times each day. If it weren’t for his biological needs (including sniffing all the things), I may not see the backyard as often as I do!
I think what I love most about taking photos of moss are the surprising details I can’t see through the lens or even with my own eyes.
This aloe vera bud grew about six inches in one week! It is literally springing up from the plant. I can’t wait to see the flower’s color. All the leaves now extend past its container, and two new plants have started growing. This plant loves my office desk.
It is also featured in Interstitial 5 and 50.
I’ve posted daily on tookapic and instagram, but not here; it takes a little more time to post on WordPress. I was busy with a special guest, my Mom. She arrived Thursday and left Saturday morning. We ate at IKEA, walked in a nature park, and saw Agnes Obel. My Mom turns 70 this year. The importance of spending time with her has increased greatly.

Not much time for photography today. This is an out of focus shot of my street. The lights look like cells to me! It’s probably bad bokeh with the rings inside the circles but I don’t care. I like it.
The last of the day’s sunlight shines on Mt. Hood while it hails where I stand. Yep. Spring has arrived!
This four-story mural by FAITH XLVII effortlessly reflects today’s mood.
This Edgeworthia Chrysantha is in fragrant bloom now! I first came across the plant about one month ago when very few blooms were beginning to open. The plant is native to Japan where the bark is used to create handmade, mitsumata paper.
