Traveller's Joy


Late afternoon kitchen scene. From a local ramble in search of too-old chicken of the woods (whose fruiting was prompted by unseasonal and welcome summer rain), sprays of Clematis brachiata, an indigenous South African clematis I found scrambling prolifically over a rock wall in full sun. And a posy of fiddleheads - the hairy tentacles of an invasive tree fern, and the smooth crosiers of bracken.

  1. Lovely ramble mementos...thank you for sharing the joy! Sunny skies here, and it feels almost balmy. Many flower buds look ready to burst open (including on our Daphne Odora in the shade). May be a good time to overfly NYC, on your return west, and have the Frenchman glide out to explore NW Oregon with you.��
