weekend images and a message

so, after makng my first run 
of poor (wo)man's asparagus
and struggling with my printer
i hooked up hannah's printer
the same as mine
and it's SO much better.
no mistakes.
so if anyone is upset with the less than lovely
printing, let me know, mail it back, and i will replace the text pages. 
 message from ronnie

book, green, bittersweet, shifu

 early morning fog 
drifted away into clear skies
this week
 with the foliage 
and the birds
relishing this early summer
thank you folks
for ordering my little booklet
poor (wo)man's asparagus
 it's an open edition
which means i will be able
to print (just ink jet, not letterpress)
more when i wish.
there are a few from the first run still left.
this giant hosta leaf is
happily huge by my porch
also on the porch
in a little planter
a gift from bittersweet farm
a lettuce garden
replenishable salad
here's brian from bittersweet farm
showing my students how to haul
piglets. four mondays in may at the farm
taught us all new skills
and empowered us as citizens.
time to weave some shifu 
cotton warp, 20 epi, 5 yards (give or take)

marks made

this mark, 
asphalt crack was extended by something 
or someone
to create a lovely loop
which wouldn't photograph well
 and these weatherd shingles
seen backwards below
hold on to their red pigment
 a strange surface
marked by water and pressure
 little jude marks
 and green 
coming on.
nesting close by is a crow family, 
they are silent coming and going from the nest, 
but i know not precisely but almost, 
where they are.
i expect lots of happy crow babies soon!
some people make marks
then they make tracks
high tailing away.
