I took a break from the relentless scrapbooking of school events to document a very different kind of event which takes place periodically in our back yard: The dropping of THOUSANDS of locust pods!
These pictures (fall, 2007) show the pods after they've been raked into piles. You should see them when they're scattered all over the yard (and our neighbor's yard). What a mess! The pods are the bane of Spouse's existence.
May I also say how much I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this paper by Rocky Mountain Paper? And no, I did not coordinate the bucket and wheelbarrow to match the paper. :-) It's a tiny bit wonderful when your patterned paper just happens to match real life!
