Another nice day. White probably gets neglected in my color spectrum because... it's just white.

So I concentrated on bringing home some white pictures to feature. How about white birch bark? I like the tones. If it weren't for the green leaves you might think it was a black and white picture.

In fact, here it is in black and white. Very interesting texturally.

The lowly Queen Anne's Lace is always lovely.

The white globe bellflowers bloomed in my garden. Not sure why they are later than the purple ones.

Common yarrow is another overlooked wild flower.

Best white picture? This beautiful cumulus cloud rising in the east. Before I got home the base of it was producing some impressive rumbles of thunder, but nothing came of it here.

In other news: I worked on my files a bit. I worked on my Books Leaving Footprints newsletter a bit. I read a bit. A calm day. That's OK-- I'm supposed to be retired, right?

Just about everyone I know says that they are busier after they retire than they were when they were working.
I always liked the look of Queen Anne's Lace.

I am so busy trying to promote books it's crazy. Sort of crashing this week, apparently.
