rome, 2011. i shot this lovely little flowering quince at the orto botanico in february.
rich and i have been working like mad in the ravine and the garden, trying to get all our projects done before the snows start to fall. i've concentrated on keeping the grass alive and the weeds out of the perennials; he's had a much more physical challenge: building a treehouse. he built a beautiful one in new mexico and he's wanted to build one here but we didn't have the right trees for it. since our land purchases, now we do. pictures to come when he's ready to show it off.
