Rainbow over dried flowers

dried flowers in a frame are overlaid with a refracted rainbow

My aunt died last summer, and one of the things I received from her home is a clear plastic angled sculpture which refracts sunlight, throwing rainbow patches all over our living room and kitchen area.  They change position as the sun moves throughout the day. This morning I saw one had landed on our wedding bouquet, which we had dried and framed. We just loved how this looked.

Green Whale Skin?

Today I harvested our butternut squash, acorn squash, some new yellow beans and green beans, and three cucumbers.  As soon as I saw the cucumbers under the leaves, I thought wow, that looks just like the skin of a whale, weathered by the sea and with barnacles on it!
