I take a lot of pictures through glass when we visit museums and other fun places with my kids. Their glasses are kept so pristine that sometimes it feels like an invisible barrier.
I hope you enjoy the pictures!
This frog is not a rock statue…as I first thought. He was still as a rock though with his eyes closed.

My parents love growing these flowers at their farm. It’s a bitter tasting root, kind of chewy, mainly used as a side dish marinated in hot pepper flakes, splash of apple cider vinegar, minced garlic, onion, and anchovy sauce. When I was pregnant with Elliot, this side dish quelled my never-ending nausea.
I haven’t seen the roots personally – only these flowers. I was told that if too many flowers bloom, then there’s less root growth.
Ahhhhh, learning about plants is a fascinating enigma! If I were to start my studies all over again, I’d study botany.
