Three more peace pins are heading west to Dana in Washington, Catherine in New Zealand, and Bronwyn in Australia ...


There have also been sightings of other pins out in the world from Vicky ...

Also sighted, these antelope horn milkweed seed pods about to open on the floodplain ...


On the family front, our St Louis daughter came to meet her new niece last Thursday ...


and took us (Meg, Don, and me) out to tea on Friday ...


She did put Parker down occasionally, including this slime-making session with G on Saturday (witnessed by G's class pet, named Bubblegum) ...


Then one more snuggle session on Sunday ...


before heading home ...


where she said the boys definitely looked bigger!

Joyful Auntie visit: Parker is so expressive, all of these photos with her special Aunt Melissa are a heart kiss. For me, the one photo that so touches me is the first photo. Parker, so alert, her tiny arm and hand on her Aunt's shoulder, holding on, Melissa looking down with such love and care and that little crease on Parker's upper arm, well, I just want to plant tiny kisses right there on her arm. Then we come to partners in crime, Auntie and nephew, happily having fun, creating slime and that brings such a chuckle. Family full circle.

Marti - thank you for your caring words ... of course, there are 20 that didn't make the cut for each picture that made it into this post.

Mo - I love how the colors in the antelope horns match the cochineal mordanted with alum and tannin. Next up: seeds fly!
