Interesting aside: I like temperatures to be reported in Celsius during the winter months, but as soon as the weather warms up, I revert to Fahrenheit. It seems that a lot of us crazy Canucks who dwell in border towns can be a bit schizophrenic when it comes to imperial vs metric measurements. We often switch systems even during the same sentence. Go figure.), Mother Nature is being a real pistol lately and has decided to stick it to me with temperatures in the low 40s to mid 50s F. But, on the bright side, at least it's not snowing.
So, yesterday I was in my garden, busily snapping the photos you see here. When I shoot plants I like to get up close and personal and look them in the eye. Try it - crouch down and take a close look at the plants all around you. You'll be amazed at the subtle shadings and the exquisite texture. The orderly mathematical symmetry of some plants is in direct contrast with the wild abandon of others. They will amaze you with their quiet splendour. So, tomorrow on the 20th anniversary of Earth Day, take a few minutes to appreciate the vegetation. Just be sure to steer clear of the triffids - those buggers are feisty.
