Friday night in.

Three kids and their Dad out for the evening.

My oldest daughter and I are going to settle in on the couch to watch Mythbusters on dvd.

First we hit the grocery store for the necessary supplies - potato chips and.... flowers!

A bundle of tulips, one of daffodils, gerbera daisies and two stems of speckled, p

ink, fragrant lilies.

My daughter helped pick them all out and then helped put them in vases at home, even rearranging them so that they looked just right.

And they do.

It was intensely good to spend that time with her.

This is the stamen from one of the lilies.

Photo Quotes
When I ask to photograph someone, it is because I love the way they look and I think I make that clear. I'm paying them a tremendous compliment. What I'm saying is, I want to take you home with me and look at you for the rest of my life.
