Buttery

Fall leaves in yellow

More fall color. This was taken in the yard of a home on Blagden Avenue, just off of Rock Creek Parkway.

Oh, Janet! I was prowling your blog, getting a feel for your photography and your town, when this shot took my breath away. It's so perfect I just want to eat it!

(I don't know why, but my sisters and I always used to say that when we loved something.)

Really gorgeous.

Ha! I've just seen the title...Buttery. Well it all makes sense now :)

Debi: I totally missed these comments back in November. Ugh. Thanks for your comments on this picture. There's actually a story behind the title...

My family teases me about being a foodie leaning toward snob. I like to cook and try new things. One ingredient that is often overlooked in cooking is lime, which acquires a buttery texture when cooked to a reduction. I was talking about lime and its buttery quality around them one day. Now, it's a staple when they tease me. This picture is titled thusly as an homage to my love of cooking and their propensity to tease me!
