Fantastic Fennel

So this is sad, so get your hankie ready. I have no flowers to photograph! Really, the only thing I could find was a big fennel that found it's way to a small patch of weeds in the front. But with an hour left of light last night after getting home and before going dinner at my neighbors ... I needed, really needed to shoot something, anything. And so, fennel it was!

My life is just splintered right now. No time, absolutely no time for blogging. No time for art. Main computer is in the shop. My son has been spending the last 5 days putting his new pc together and has taken over my normal work space in the family room. I am working on one of my many "old" macs around the house. So I am grabbing a couple of minutes before rushing off the bed. I miss blogging! I am sorry I have been so terrible at answering my email. I keep telling myself, things will get better and this too shall pass.

This looks like a little firework, just exploding in a vase.

Next assignment? Dirt. I want to see how you make dirt look. I would place a large sum down knowing you can make ANYthing look fabulous.

Hope things wind your way soon.

I saw this on flickr earlier today and would have commented there, alas, I was wrestling a tiny girl at the time...in any event, this image just makes me happy. I think it's the combination of the color and the burst effect of the florets(?).

Another gorgeous floral portrait, Kim. Take good care.

Poor Kim! Hope things settle down so you'll have time to stop and smell the...fennel? By the by, I never knew fennel could look so pretty!

Simply Gorgeous! And it came from a weed patch...

They do look like little fireworks, it is fantastic. And the wonderful scent it left on my hands after cutting these was great. Thanks everyone! Feeling good today, took the day off to enjoy my son's birthday. ;)
