the garden is in...

........a little of this, a little of that...basically a salad garden: tomatoes, lavender, lettuce, lavender, cucumbers, eggplant, lavender, pole beans up teepees, lots of lavender, other herbs, nasturtiums, lavender. I love lavender! But I love "the bones" of my garden...the rocks, bricks, limestone, and mulch (straw). It is such a flexible annual piece of art (performance art) to me. Then I sit out there every morning with my first coffee and observe the seeds that have come it! (Oh...and an heirloom mammoth pumpkin that will eventually engulf everything!

This blog stuff is fun. Computers are such miracles to my boomer generation brain. Colors, layouts, templates, fonts, whatever can be changed, viewed, deleted, kept, whatever. Elements of design and art are incorporated everywhere.

At American University more than several years ago, our exposure to computers consisted of punch cards and one big mainframe computer that took up at least four rooms. Now my MacBook sits on my lap as I sit on the couch in front of the TV.

And google! Another miracle. How did we ever find anything before google?

Computers and search engines are a lot like religion in that they both take a major leap of faith and suspension of comprehension.
