.i spy.


this week, i thought that i would spot my own bike. i've been parking it in this spot for a few weeks now, it's right against the back stairs of our house. i love how the green of the bike interacts with the greens of the plants. especially with all of the great shapes and textures around. like that geranium. and the wonderful, overflowing lemongrass. i love how huge the lemongrass has grown. i can't wait to use the fat stalks in cooking. it's getting there!

sadly, the back tire on my bike has been destroyed. it really was a self-destruction process. the tires were dry-rotted and the rubber was so cracked that it was flaking off with the pressure of the brake. well, pretty much all of the rubber cracked off, including that of the inner tube, and i not have a flat back tire. it's more than flat, though, it's utterly destroyed. it looks so sad sitting there in my back yard... i hope i can get new tires soon.

for now, i've mostly enjoyed walking to town everyday. it takes longer, but some days that's a good thing.

Lovely greenness. Sorry about your tire though. I have a new tube and tire for mine and it's been sitting on the workbench for about a month. eek!

My bike needs a bunch of other things looked at that I have no knowledge about, so I'll eventually bring it into a shop and have them do it... Fix your bike! Fall is the perfect time to ride it :)

Sorry about the bike, but I love how all the greens harmonize.

Hi Jen! Thanks for visiting :) I read the comment you made on my last post, "tending", and really appreciated it. However, I accidentally deleted it! I'm glad that you commented again, so I could tell you, because I felt awful. So, thanks :)

I love all of these greens, too.
