On Shrewsbury Street, as you can see, there are plenty of places to get a drink—many of them resembling the friendly neighborhood bar in Cheers where everybody knows your name.

Monday is Found Art Day, so yesterday I took my camera out to the garden, which has pretty much been doing its own thing this year--perennials crowded together with weeds, plus a few new annuals, some bean plants, a couple of tomatoes. For an ignored garden it's looking pretty good.
Many of the flowers were planted more than forty years ago by previous owners--spectacular irises (all done now) and some lilacs that I know go back a hundred years. The lilies of the valley and day lilies have spread all over the place and the yellow forsythia--first harbinger of spring-- has jumped from the upper garden in the front yard down to the back garden by the pool, making for a solid wall of yellow.
I decided to channel Georgia O'Keefe and look very closely at the flowers that are currently in bloom.

When I was growing up a Presbyterian in Minnesota, I thought that the ceremony of baptism consisted of a short period after church when the minister said a few words over the baby and splashed some water on its head.
