Earlier today I took this picture of an ornamental kale just to send to someone with the message "Remember the time you thought I was fucking with you that kale and broccoli are the same vegetable?"
I don't use faces very much though lately? The hand gestures seem more expressive in conversation, and there's a lot of images that make good punctuation to imply a good mood without having to think about how different variations of smiley might be interpreted
"Aftermath of the Winter Storm", Tom Gill, 2010. Waves crashed against the lighthouse during freezing weather and created these eerie ice formations. The rest of the album is just as strange and striking. (https://www.flickr.com/photos/lapstrake/5278242989/in/album-72157628420938737)
A fave from my brooch collection: A 1930s/40s sweetheart pin. Usually when these turn up for sale they have a man's and woman's name engraved on them. I know nothing about Velma and Gladys, but this is either two kid sisters buying a Mother's Day gift (cute), or a young woman with a crush on her bestie and is smitten enough to choose a "key to my heart" token for her. 🗝️💕
Lazy plant keeping: Now that I run the dehumidifier constantly, this cactus is thriving slightly out of season. It's also possible to force flowers by making sure the plant is in a dark room 14-16 hours a day, but February does that itself. #florespondence

It's been a long time since I've crocheted (and even longer since I've made something other than a doily), so maybe I didn't stop to consider the colour lengths before buying variegated yarn and I wasn't expecting so much white in this one. But it'll probably end up looking more flecked from a distance once this is a large scarf wrapped around my neck and shoulders, like I'm only focusing on it because it's such a small sample. #crochet #LizardShawl
