Warren, Connecticut.

Our hostas seem to be going by right now but I found this amazing plant over at a friend’s house. I love hosta leaves, they’re voluptuous.

Update: I’ve replaced the original image with a new one. In printing the first version the slightly sepia color didn’t look great and I went with a more standard monochrome processing. I hate to replace an image after people have commented on it, my apologies if this messes anything up.

Warren, Connecticut.

We were out very early this morning cutting up some large red oak logs from trees that were taken down last spring (my large saw with 20″ bar had to make two passes). Fantastic wood and once split and dried it’s going to heat our houses well three years from now (we work three years out).

It started raining while we were working and I noticed some water droplets collecting on a hosta plant nearby. Took a few images in the rain and this is what I got. Not quite as sharp as I’d like but still some interesting patterns and textures.
