cartoon life: This year’s water lilies

There have been about a half dozen blooms this summer, all hiding discreetly beneath the lush leaf cover. I think the secret is no longer having raccoons or skunks as nighttime visitors. Filed under: photo Tagged: garden, pond, water lily

cartoon life: Some interesting image captures from a few rides around #ldnont

I’ve been employing a Hero3 camera on my bike rides. Occasionally, the wireless network gets left on, or accidentally bumped on and sucks the battery.
