Herbs in the Morning
One time, I heard that a neighbor was complaining that all of a sudden I’d show up in her backyard early in the morning with my camera. Actually, I was in another neighbor’s yard taking photos of his flowers but living in a condo can be boundary less at times like these.
So, trying to be respectful, I now don’t go wandering until 8 AM over near that side. See what a good neighbor I am? I photograph dill (this image) on my porch while being neighborly.
I did walk around the back of my own unit this morning around 6 AM because it has eastern exposure, it’s summer, and you know that yellow disc in the sky that was missing in Massachusetts most of June? Well, it’s baaaack and flowers in first light are simply too beckoning.
I tip toed by porches looking straight ahead with my camera bag. I went to a unit where the woman has been very ill and has been in a rehab facility for many weeks. I heard yesterday that it is not at all certain when or if she can return to her home.
I photographed her blue hydrangeas and cut a few to take to her at the facility later on today. As I tip toed back to my unit with a handful of blossoms, I felt the urge to yell out to any peepers, “I’m taking these to Ann today! They are not for me!”
They wouldn’t have believed me.
