I’m procrastinating again. Yard work looms large in my future but I find it pretty easy to push the work to the back of the day – or the next day. I didn’t have a lot of enthusiasm for anything on my “to do” list this morning. I started to watch the Tour de France and quickly got frustrated with the all-too-frequent commercial interruptions. I love the racing but I hate the repetitive commercials that they throw at you. So, given a sort of funk developing I thought I’d grab the camera and head for the Rose Garden with intent to look for some water drops and abstract forms. I wanted some vibrant colors so I searched out blossoms that had some contrast and high quality. It’s not too hard to find water drops in the morning – just follow the sprinkler sequence and look for relatively low blooms. I was pleased to see that new blossoms have replaced the ones that our recent heat destroyed. It’s such a treat to live so close to this Portland icon.
