A busy day here, but with good stuff. My mom and I went shopping this morning--the usual groceries, sundries, banking, and office supplies. (Don't you just love office supply stores? After quilt shops and book stores, I head for the office supplies.) Then I got to see a foal that was born about two weeks ago--he's quite a cutie, and his mom is very high spirited! What a treat! Reminds me of my teen years when I had a horse of my own. Visiting is even better--all the thrill, none of the expense or work to keep a horse!
These are the last pictures from the lilies at my mom's. It just amazes me how Mother Nature can make things so intricately. Can you imagine how many spores of pollen are on each of these stamens (or are they pistols? I can never remember!) But that doesn't stop me from being in awe.
