Fresh Pickings




Favourite animals, arranged by colour.




Remember this photo from Tuesday?




The same two flowers on Thursday (yesterday) tightly closed against the rain. Today they are open again.




A cicada on my 16 year old's fingers.




Hot apple pie, made from scratch by Miss 19.




Yesterday morning.....




Four hours later!




Last but not least, this morning's fresh pickings, a sweet way to finish my breakfast.
