I hit the road this morning under overcast skies hoping to see a nicely frosted landscape somewhere. As I traveled the sun came out and there were breaks in the clouds showing bits of blue sky here and there. The day was becoming lovely. But…I just had no motivation and just wasted a bunch of gas driving around and accomplishing nothing. A shame that I did not really even enjoy the morning as I kept thinking that if I wasn’t making images then I should be cleaning the yard after the snowfall or getting my info ready for taxes. All was not lost…I did buy a box of ginger green tea, some asparagus, fresh raspberries and a block Parmigiano Reggiano. No they are not all for the same “Chopped” mystery basket.
Anyway, the subject of skunk cabbage was raised the other day. I do have one image of them blossoming in the snow. So, for today, I am sharing this very old image that is from a scan of a Velvia transparency from March of 2004 and one of my last film shots.I’ve heard the Common Yellowthroats may sometimes nest in the hollow of the leaves. And sometimes maples will give it a shot.
I think I’ll grab some mid-afternoon grub. Vanilla Bean Greek Yoghurt with raspberries, blueberries and chopped walnuts sounds good. 🙂 Tonight we are having Zucchini Potato Latkes stacked with goat cheese filling. They are even better than they sound. Also from Whole Foods. 🙂
