Why is our flight departing half an hour late? Because everyone checked a million suitcases and all the babies have strollers. The entire conveyor belt is strollers.

Blue line Cumberland

waiting for the blue line on the way to the airport. Coming from work had me going places I've never been before.


time to play match the arrangement again!

this is one of my favorites:

and my slightly brighter version:

then there was the guy who's girlfriend didn't like flowers. he saw this on our website:
and i told him i only had a different variety of purple orchids, but i'd make something with a similar anti-"flower" feel.

i was getting bored with our standard flowers, so i asked the wholesaler to send me some interesting things, and i got eremerus as tall as i am:

and finally, here are the arrangements for the party on the 99th floor. i made 17 of them, and our contact said they looked just like the picture charles sent her!

oh, and there is one more flower photo, but not from the flowershop- there are all these beautiful wildflowers (weeds?) growing on my walk to work. they are so nice, and it's a glimpse of what the midwest is like without chicago and farmland and suburbs. without all that PA is forest and that's how i grew up and what i like. but if this is what prairie is like, well the that is quite nice too.

finally, the end of june and a day warm enough to go to the beach! i won't have a single weekend to go to the beach for the next 6 weeks, so we have to live it up now. i think this is one of my first multi-person shots with the iphone4's front facing camera. i have to say, it really takes the fun out of holding it up, pushing the button, and hoping for the best.

my dad sent me a photo of my pop pop in the hospital. i sent him this one back. i think that was my last contact with him that he was aware of. my dad did call me and hold the phone up to his ear right before he died. that was really nice.
