it's un-retouched, although I chose the position very carefully. The crocuses are very close - in reality they are only a couple of inches across. The P-I box is an old newspaper box from a sadly defunct paper, which I use for a "little free library". It's about 3 feet tall.

I also try to post one picture that's pretty, or funny, or interesting while on the bus to work. Tuesday I had this to work with so I tried adding a funny caption and let go.
The darn spell checker changed "Trilliums" to "Trillions" and I didn't notice until it got comments. Well, I guess I succeeded at being funny; just not how I'd hoped haha!

|I wore the yellow and blue tie at St. Ed's, but not often. I really don't like clip-ons|
|I've seen photos of us boys dressed fancy with clip-on bow ties, but I have no memory of it|

I am cleaning things out, shrinking the pile of detritus because I do like a neat home, but I can't just throw things in the trash. I'm also looking to take an interesting picture every day. I found this jar of buttons and, before I offered it up on "Buy Nothing" for the crafters, posted it on Facebook asking for comments.
My sister Sharon identified it as Mom's button jar that she used to play with as a child, and asked to have it.I remember mom having a button can, but I don't remember the jar. However she was of a time where you saved everything because money was short. Also she sewed quite a lot so saving nice buttons just made sense.
I set it aside for Sharon at Christmas, or whenever we would get together, along this this jar of pretty rocks, which seems to come from the same time (but I have no memory of either so who knows?)
