  1. Such a soothing post. "fresh black walnuts" & "pickle juice vinegar" were repeated aloud several times.

  8. fiona, just before the end of august is always like this. a few more days and we rev up for school, etc, but now, now it's peace and warm and waiting.

  14. Grey holds other colors quietly. There is pink and yellow here. I can't get enough of this weather. I hope it isn't the calm before a storm.

  15. jude, i think the richness of this gray is because it comes from fresh black walnuts, plus.
