Here are today’s prompts: Vacation, Food, Sound, Texture and Anything. And here are my entries.
I haven’t been on a VACATION for a while, but this Friday I decided to go out to Northampton, Massachusetts, where my daughter lives for a “daycation.” Our intentions were to go to the Smith College Art Museum to see an exhibit there, but unbeknownst to us, Friday started Alumnae Weekend there and the place was crawling with people. We opted for a nice ride out into the country instead.
The weather wasn’t all that nice. It was drizzly and cool. So we didn’t get out of the car until we reached Flayvors of Cook Farm in Hadley to have a small dish of ice cream. Well, it is asparagus season here in Massachusetts and they grow a lot of it in Hadley. Asparagus is one of my favorite FOODs, but this is the first time I’ve ever tasted asparagus ice cream. Two thumbs up!!
Back home, we have huge azalea bushes in front of our house and this time of year, the bees are out in full force. They make a great buzzing SOUND as they go about their work.
This is a piece of “driftwood” that I found in the woods near our house. It’s not really driftwood, I don’t think, because I found it in the woods not by the ocean but I liked it and now it ornaments our front garden. I think it has a great TEXTURE.
If there's ANYTHING I like, it's a dandelion. They have really caught me this year.
