I've been told to take it easy these last couple weeks before the baby comes (one of her due dates is today; the other is Monday). Here are some photos from this weird, boring downtime, which all the new parents I know say I should be profoundly thankful for.
Lunch at Via Tribunali in Georgetown.
Sunset on Airport Way.
Followed by moonrise on Beacon Hill.
Dinner at Pig Iron BBQ in Georgetown.
Fried green tomatoes and chop salad.
Sedum and feather grass in the rock wall at home.
The creeping green plant is Point Reyes Ceanothus, which has proved outstandingly useful to us. It seeks out all the spaces where weeds used to grow.
For some reason, not nearly as many apples (or plums) as last year. But some.
Might we get a second crop of raspberries?
And the incredible growing Eucalyptus. My husband is 6'4, so it's what, 10, 11 feet tall?
Here's the same plant in the back of our truck, standing just a couple feet high, on 9/2/07 -- less than a year ago.
