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.

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.
(X-posted to my journal)
"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.

) 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.

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. Current Mood: curious
