waiting for the ride

(viewed 1151 times)
Rob left last week for university. When I want my camera to work, it doesn't. Outoffocus is Rob's equipment--guitar and longboard. He arrived safely. Says the surf outside Halifax is great, long as you are wearing a wetsuit. Otherwise the Atlantic claims you. Have a great year, robearto.

Fringed gentian only blooms here when summer is over, and I like it for that reason..just when I think it's all over, hey, look at that gentian, and it's not just sortof blue, it's a true blue.

seeking green

I have been chained to the city for the summer. I bike around looking for secret green places. The University of Toronto has a brilliant small forest inside a courtyard. It's kind of beaten down. Guerilla gardening time.

Fake window, real clouds

I had to get my car fixed so I was in a strange part of town. The shopping mall had an Arizona theme, stucco walls, and an arcade along the shops (like Bologna or Taos). Appropriated architecture. There were lots of windows like this, fake windows, which I found fascinating.

Toothpaste slime

(viewed 1032 times)
Last summer I found this on a log. It is Lycogala epdendrum, toothpaste slime, or wolf's milk. It also can move. I mean to go back and sit there long enough to see it move. The world of fungi and slime is fantastic.
