One child's white sock. When they come back from the wash, they are like snowflakes - no two alike. I'm sure they went in as pairs, but they have stretched or shrunk on their own schedules.

The tops of pencils seem somehow architectural to me - I'm reminded of deco skyscrapers and distant medieval towers.

You can now buy rubber bands which default to dinosaur shapes.  So we've gotten them.

I'm temporarily away from full internet access. Am still drawing, and will post a catch-up batch of images when I'm back online again.

With the recent unseasonably warm weather (five days of 75-85 degree F), many things have burst into bloom at once. Tonight in our yard I noticed: daffodils, vinca, grape hyacinth, wood hyacinth, two varieties of species tulip, crab apple, juneberry, and lilacs just beginning to open.
Freezing rain or snow in the prediction for Friday... we ate supper outside tonight.

These soybeans make a great snack. (Please excuse the peculiar coloring - I misplaced my camera this evening, and had to make do with a phone cam snapshot. I'll replace the photo with a clearer one tomorrow. ...photo replaced.)
