special day


my niece on her birthday last year.

i'm swamped with work, so it will be a bit quieter hereabouts.

p.s.: i haven't miraculously acquired a medium format camera. these are simply cropped.

what an entrance


the japanese cherries at the end of the street.

some wild garlic (ramps, or ramson) is sitting on my kitchen counter. looking for ways to cook it, or use it raw. ideas so far: wild garlic pesto or risotto, wild garlic butter. possibly in a vinaigrette, to dress green asparagus with. what do you use it for?

it's madly snowing out there as i type. we also had some rain, some sun and quite a bit of hail today. what an entrance, april.

happy easter!
happy passover!
