Sleeping Bean

My apologies to those of you who received the "testing word editor" blog posts.  I was hoping that Word would be a more flexible editing tool than what they have in Blogger, but I can't get around photo upload problems.  I'm posting this photo to clear those tests from your blog lists - because who doesn't love a sleeping Bean!

Saturday Morning Errands

I'm not sure how this pair liked being tied to a bike rack while their
person had breakfast at General Greene, but they maintained 
their dignity.
Seems all the large dog teams were out running 
errands this morning too.

False advertising!  I went to this stoop sale, 
and not a ward to be found. 

At the farmers' market for bread and tomatoes.

Is this the fabled peck of peppers?  No, not pickled.


Great gourds!

Heirloom tomatoes - too pricey, but pretty.  I buy the regular
"field" tomatoes.
Beautiful music - 
someone's dog was obviously charmed.

Lawn Envy from a Brooklyn Apartment

We have lovely views but no balcony or outdoor space to call our own, so we have a jungle of indoor plants. We tried growing pretty moss, but that would always die suddenly. My father gave us grass seeds that will grow anywhere, and so far so good.
Mr. Beans is supervising the "mowing".

Aftermath of the Storm - 9/16/10

The big storm that came through New York yesterday hit our neighborhood like a cyclone. We had rain pouring in sideways through the windows before we got them closed. I couldn't get any photos because my camera would have been soaked.  We lost some beautiful old trees in the neighborhood, and some people lost their cars. I've never seen weather like this since we moved here in 2003.

More crazy sunsets.

The winds having been blowing in some great sunsets lately.  I was uploading the top photo when I saw the makings of the 2nd photo and had to yank my camera out of the computer and open the window again.

I especially like the rays of pink light in NJ behind the Statue of Liberty at the bottom.

They were taken about 12 minutes apart, and I didn't do any editing.

Flying Fish at the Fuller Garden in New Hampshire

Not flying really, but an illusion from the reflection on the water.  Took this while visiting my parents who live in one of New Hampshire's coastal towns.  Posted by Picasa
