burst of color...

in the dead of winter.

i dug these carrots up from the garden yesterday, and i swear, they are actually growing under there! the ones i dug up a month ago were much smaller.
hard to believe really, when it's overcast and cold for weeks on end.
plants are amazing things.
i cannot get over how crisp and sweet these beauties are.

architecture as play thing

when it's this cold outside, some of the running around needs to happen indoors.

cosmo and one of his pals made good use of a double stairwell in the fine arts building at IU (just down the hall from the beloved friends of art bookshop).

one would wait at the top while the other went downstairs. the trick was to walk back up so quietly, that the one at the top would not know which stairway had been chosen--- SURPRISE!
