We spent some time with my parents this weekend.  They always have lovely sunsets on their little hill.  I had to do a lot of PhotoShop doctoring for this photo to look decent.   Anyone have tips on how to take good sunset photos – keeping enough of the foreground illuminated, and not making the sky look like it’s about to explode?

Unfortunately, none of my festive, patriotic photos came out.  So here is a shot of my lovely eggplant-plant.  And a little taste of our day-to-day.  We found out that The Boy’s daycare is closing at the middle of next month, and we’re quite distressed.  We love the people and the program and hope there will be someone else out there who will embrace The Boy as much as they have.

This shabby invasive has all but taken over my landlords backyard.  This is the first time it’s bloomed in the three springs we’ve been here.  Makes me like it just a little bit…
