Dish It Up!

Admit it, washing dishes is just not much fun.  Reading about the history of dinner plates and their myriad of styles and colors is terrific fun, however!  And so is the new book entitled “Dish – 813 Colorful, Wonderful Dinner Plates” written by Shax Riegler, the features editor at House Beautiful magazine.  In “Dish”, Shax explores centuries of dinner plates from olden days to the present and, with beautifully simple photography by Robert Bean, showcases rarified and humble examples.  They’re all pieces of gustatory history, items that we usually take for granted.  But you’ll never look at your plates in the same way after reading this entertaining volume.

Look Up!

A grey day but lo!  A tree is ablaze dressed in all its variations of red and orange on this fall day.  This showy specimen was so intense it just wouldn’t or couldn’t be ignored.

Corny

Fall, to my eye at least, presents us with the most nuanced color schemes of the year.  And perhaps Indian Corn, more than any other seasonal offering, is unmatched in showing how nature melds colors together in unexpected and beautiful harmonies.

So Close . . .

A young deer takes a respite in the courtyard area between my barns.  I was inside and saw this guy relaxing.  It was such a peaceful scene I had to grab the camera.

A Better View of Forever?

A bright orange hot air balloon floated at the edge of an early blue-eyed sky this morning.  Quiet, peaceful, contemplating his view of forever.
