Good point; I believe I was missing from my vacation pictures more often included.
Emily, Laura and I went to Shaker Woods yesterday. Linda thought she might get some work out of them, so put them in costume.
This business of running a booth remains a wonder to Laura. Did you ever see such an overwhelmed face? They were there to help Linda put her stock back in the van at the end of the show, and close down the booth. They disappeared for the day, into the crowd.
We went to Linda's for a picnic supper. Linda brought home two pints of bean soup from the bean soup booth and Alberta had kale, tomatoes, cucumbers, peaches and melon ready. And a pot of coffee! A feast.
Linda always needs a picture. She had her tripod, but decided not to try to set up the timer. She took this picture, then turned the camera and took a picture of herself. How funny. I thought of that day at work when my boss asked me if I had actually been on my vacation.
Linda posted the picture on Facebook. I saw it this morning and laughed. Look very close. Linda is reflected in my left lens, like a finger poking my iris. That's her. White dress.
It's safe to say Laura loves this place.
I set off across the yard. "Where are you going?" Linda called after me. "To take a picture of the garden."
"The world loves Alberta's garden."
The business end of the garden, with the kale, cabbage, cucumbers, tomatoes and other stuff I don't recall.
The flower end. I believe those are zinnias, but don't hold me to it.
