Godzilla in the garden and other adventures

May 15, 2013

Getting back into a routine is one of the hardest tasks I face when I return from a trip. I’m distractable at the best of times (insert your favorite labrador retriever and squirrel joke here), but the week after getting back is one long bounce around the house.

 

I had two unfinished pieces, so that helped slow me down a bit. The first was the calendar block for July, which I finished.

The second unfinished piece was my Challenge, The Surface of Infinity. I didn’t finish, but I’m making progress.

The rest of the time I tried to figure out what I do around here, which means poking into odd corners to see what’s hidden there. On one of those expeditions I wandered outside, and noticed that some of the plants would do very well as scenery for a sci fi movie. I ran to fetch my son’s Godzilla action figure (which he intended to pitch out years ago, but I saved) and my camera:

 

Take me to your snap peas!

What a strange and lovely planet this is

Arghhh!

Arghhh!

Now that you’ve seen what’s in my garden, tell me what’s in yours.
