I love flowers. I found this while taking a walk this afternoon and had to snap this pic. It's amazing what summer's bounties can offer. Flowers invoke a feeling of contentment. It looked like a daisy to me (minus the weed tendrils), but I checked out some reputable sites and it appears to be a common ragwort and is apparently poisonous. What a beautiful weed though!
It reminds me of the saying: You can look but don't touch.
My friend Chris gave me the nickname of Miss Parmigiani many years ago for my love of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. I'm half Italian and have a bubbly, goofy personality, so the name just stuck!
I majored in print journalism. I love environmental issues, especially issues pertaining to the politics of water problems because water affects everyone on the planet. It is AMAZING how many politics are involved in how water is delivered, and to whom and by whom.
I also love trying new things, learning about new people and exploring new issues.

Save your soil!
If you are a homeowner, you should consider planting plants that do not require a lot of fertilizer. While it feeds plants, having plants native to your area will require less of it. They will naturally take their nutrients from the existing soil.
The Brown Bean plant is cute, but most importantly, it doesn't take a lot of water after the first watering season!
