  1. I spent a summer in Provence and took bunches of pictures of a magical flower, unfurling and spreading gorgeously. Later I found out it was Queen Anne’s Lace. Maybe they had it where I had grown up as well. Years later, visiting home, I saw, to my surprise, the same rosie house finches I was feeding here in Boston. It’s all in the looking and noticing. Thanks for this post.
