Okay, I lied. In my last post I promised the next would be about a recipe that would be delightful for sopping up juices with that delicious bread. But! Today is the deadline for Scott’s latest challenge over at Views Infinitum. I have to say that I had very good intentions going into this challenge and then they sort of fizzled and I got frustrated. Let me start by saying that perhaps March is not the most picturesque month here in my hometown. A little deeper into spring, and I might have been able to show you the gorgeous cherry trees in bloom in my neighborhood.
And at least in the summer our local parks are open. Right now they are closed so the turf doesn’t get ruined with people running around in the mud. In autumn, my town is rather well known for a little fair you might have heard of, and things get really colorful.
Sometimes, with a coating of snow sometimes everything looks prettier. Even pictures taken with a cell phone crap-cam!
But, I can’t show you any of those things! Forget you saw them! 🙂
I wanted to show a different side of my town, outside of the megamarts and strip malls. My hometown is also a very pleasant suburb with pastoral landscapes…
…and quiet, winding side streets. It’s surrounded by hills…
(I couldn’t seem to get the vantage point I would have liked for these river pictures. I thought maybe a b&w treatment might make this one more interesting, but I’m not so sure.)
So, there it is – a little peek at my hometown, and two promises to go with it – that I do better with Scott’s next challenge, and that my next post really will feature something delicious to eat with that bread!
