It's true, this is me. The green pants are for real...pants that I made; soft, washed linen. My sis says I look like a Dutch boy in these; they are very boxy and non-descript, but oh so comfortable. I do these caricatures of myself because, well...I can take photos of many things but I have yet to figure out how to take snapshots of myself, by myself. Early June 2011; cutting roses in the garden. First blooms are already done with; too bad, because I'd like to make rosewater using petals from my garden. The recipe is simple enough; it requires vodka as well as rose petals (vodka acts as a preservative). Maybe with the second bloom of roses; we'll see.
