I’m Still Here…

Isn't that a movie with Joaquin Phoenix... or something like that...? (And yes, I googled to make sure, and while scanning wikipedia,  I only needed to see the words "Buffalo Soldier" to then have that song in my head.)

December Flower: Narcissus

OK, I'll try to get another picture of this...I took this while it was being hung at the gallery. (So, it's behind glass and I took it using my cell phone). The next flower is for January and I need to find a good picture of a carnation. The next time I go to the … Continue reading December Flower: Narcissus
