Dogwood Buds

I took this picture yesterday afternoon while walking home from the market carrying another box of pansies, several cameras, books, gym clothes (I didn’t go) and two bags of produce. I never seem to be able to go anywhere unencumbered.

I considered garbage-picking a massive, square sink but had to walk away from it, begrudgingly accepting my limitations. It would have made an awesome planter!

I’ve had to start putting annoying and ugly watermarks on all of my images because they are showing up as illustrations on too many blogs and gardening catalogues. There’s this crazy legal thing called copyright and intellectual property that half of The Internet just doesn’t seem to get.

  1. Kudos on the dogwood buds — I’m relishing every teeny sign of spring this year! As for your photos — I’d send the offending site an e-mail, at the very least, and make them take it down! That really ticks me off.

  2. I actually like the watermark..

    When I found website that stole my content I sent them an e-mail telling them “I -really- like their style…”

    Some people replied, some didn’t. Haha.
