lingering onward dreamily
A few pics from the summer so far...
Lucy running past the camera
first orange on the tree out front - they'll be ripe by December
the Libovola (new favorite plant)
Lucy plays scrivener on our walkway
patience for the avocado to sprout
the only pumpkin grown in Venice, CA
a yellow monarch fluttered by, and Lucy wanted a picture, so I quickly snapped the shutter and lucked out
the amazing Tessa

Tessa and Lucy contemplate the sunset in Malibu
I'm not sure how the butterfly got in focus - I think I'd already focused on a nearby tree, and the butterfly happened to be the same distance when I whipped the camera up.
The first buds on a tomato plant are always a problem, but if you lose some and let the leaves grow, the second batch of flowers/tomatoes are twice as yummy because of the leaf growth. Leaves on plant = more flavor. My 4-year-old keeps picking all the mint and chocolate mint leaves in the garden and chewing on them, like Yemeni soldiers chewing khat. It's crazy.
