To Tell The Truth

Almost a year ago I posted a blog that stated that we had no time to produce a blog, and since we're in the same situation today I decided to repeat my excuse, but then to also rerun a previous photo contest.


I believe in telling the truth...
Unless there's a better version.

Today's blog will not happen. It has been written and the photos chosen, but Seth has no time to put it together. Shipping plants has the entire nursery hopping and I don't want Seth to snarl at me like last year: "Do you want to make money, or do you want your damn blog published?!"

So instead we'll do a re-run of a past year's photo contest. Maybe you need a break from me too.

  1. You make it hard. Too many beautiful photos to chose just one.

  2. Besutiful photos, as usual. I'm not sure if you read your comments or not but your 'Usugumo' is a 'Hoshi yadori' and your Acer pauciflorum is an Acer pubipalmatum. I know, I know, I'm that guy.
