jackson square postcard shot
My partner says to me: "Do you REALLY need that shot again?"
Sure, I do have that shot at least a dozen times, but seriously....the clouds, they are perfect. I really needed THIS shot. Postcard perfect, I think.

New Orleans Summer Sunset
I love it when we have first time visitors and we have to take them on the city tour and play tourist with them. This was the case twice in the last week! And her are a few shots I got along the way.

touristy NOLA shotsCollapse )

Sunset over Cane
Sunset over Cane 
Sunset over Cane Field 9.08.07

I needed to take these pictures tonight because the cane fields around my home are being sacrificed for gated communities. It sucks.  How will I view my sunsets?  I was brave enough to drive onto the muddy road to get these. Do enjoy...an increasingly rare sight.

Topinambur


Topinambur 

From Wikipedia:

"The Jerusalem artichoke (Helianthus tuberosus L.), also called the sunroot or sunchoke or topinambur, is a flowering plant native to North America grown throughout the temperate world for its tuber, which is used as a root vegetable." 



The above photo is my mother's crop of "topinambur" which grows near her driveway.  They are replants from my yard--her mother's yard. A Cajun delight, the tuber/root is cooked in stews and gravies, and pickled. When plants finish flowering, the stalks dry up. Then the tubers can be dug up, cleaned and prepared.  

Pretty flowers-- But the real treat is beneath the ground.

Houmas House
Mike (smailtronic) and I went to Houmas House yesterday afternoon. It the first plantation we've visited (as we're transplants originally from Ohio), and I'm afraid we've been spoiled. It was beautiful. Hard to believe someone still lives there.

I didn't want to take up much room on your friends list, but if you click, you can see the big versions.

The connecting passway between the two houses.

Honey comb with bees

This is a picture of  a honey comb with millions of bees on it in the spring in Louisiana.  They are now gone which I have posted already.  It was hanging from a tree limb, and the bees really never bothered anyone.
