No, this is not a Photoshopped April Fool’s trick–it’s an actual carrot from my garden. A friend was visiting when I picked it and suggested I sew a little outfit for it. Perhaps a sassy can-can skirt? There is something a little Folies Bergère about it, isn’t there? My garden is always such a source of peace and inspiration but usually in a somber and contemplative way. Amusing to have it making jokes for me now! Yet another reason to be close to nature–it always seems to provide what’s really needed.
