Love and Whirled Peas...

I don't know what it is, but I can't post pictures and not add my own running commentary.  It could have something to do with the fact that I can't keep my mouth shut.  Then again it could also have something to do with the fact that I talk to a seven and nine year old, day-in and day-out, all day, every day, about things like why our frog, is probably happier now that we released him back into the wild.  This is the sort of topic that can go on for days around here.
Also, I just wanted to photograph something that stood still.  And didn't talk back.
Or give me an opinion.  Or try to convince me that purple and white stripes do go with black and red ladybug dresses and gold ballet flats. 
Peas just kind of sit there where you put them.  And they don't make Star Wars light saber noises for hours on end with no sign of stopping.  Or karate chop pillows that I just fluffed, minutes before house showings.

I like that.

  7. Man. I'm fairly certain you could just take random pics of vegetables and put them up in your kitchen for fancy decor.

    Also, now I really wanna find some peas.

  15. I got a giggle out of the description of your son. My son runs around making little "pew pew" sounds all day. Know what I mean? Like a laser gun. :) The peas are such a pretty green.
