this is what is burning in Russia

(viewed 992 times)
Sphagnum moss builds up in bogs for years, centuries, forming layers of peat underground. Peat burns slowly and with a log of smoke. Peat fires are very hard to put out because the fire travels underground. Hoping for big rain in Russia.

give me snow

Since June, it has been disgustingly hot and humid and polluted. It does not end. I just needed a little snow memory today.

Ramona is here

(viewed 897 times)
We've been waiting for Ramona for a while and she finally arrived. Oscar thinks being a big brother is pretty good, so far. Our family has always been boys. As her uncle Andy said, 'A girl? What do we know about girls? What do we do with her?' Ramona is two days old, and she's a champion sleeper. I think she's terrific.

moth on flower

(viewed 1445 times)
Orange-patched Smoky Moth -- Pyromorpha dimidiata on Liatris cylindricea. I know nothing about insects, except there are an awful lot of them involved with plants so I better get used to them. This moth and I spent a lovely evening hanging around the liatris so I photographed it. I even found its name by pure chance.

Up until now, I had never seen a swamp rose, Rosa palustris, but now I have.

I'm trying to get my mojo back, trying to find the zen of it all.

the police abandoned their cars

(viewed 1106 times)
so people got in and were like kids, pushing the siren button, getting on the microphone, flashing the lights. And when the battery ran out, they torched them. So far, I think 6 police cars have been burned. In Montreal in 2008, in a hockey riot, they burned 16 cars. And it wasn't even a g20.
