This is a good idea

Parsley. Sage. Rosemary and thyme. Basil. Chervil. Oregano, too.  Wichita Botanica.
Louie snapped this shot at the Jewish Museum designed by David Libeskind. A zinc-plated fortress with dark voids for contemplation in the interior made me feel a little sick. That was intentional in Libeskind's design. Very powerful and unsettling. This is in the Garden of Exiles a close-packed forest of pillars open to the sky where no surface is horizontal or vertical--this creates a sense of the exile's disoriented view of the world. It works! Russian olive trees grow out of the tops of the 30-foot pillars. Those leaves are from surrounding trees that have fallen on the cobblestone paths. What an eye that Louie has!


Found this bird's nest in the grape arbor. Never did identify the birds who made it. After the babies hatched, a big black bird swooped into the arbor and destroyed them. Just killed them and left them to rot. While we were picking grapes, we removed the nest, and found these two grapes nestled in. I added the grape tomato for this post.
