A metaphorical image, for me, of the oppressed minorities in our world. Powerful and dramatic.Blue(hope)on the left, black(distress)on the right, red(suffering and deprivation of liberty)in the middle. But the detainees stand proud and don't lose hope. They are right.
On a more prosaic note, our "spring" is being so delayed that my rows will not be productive until well into May. Usually we get several pickings in mid to late April. So I'm jealous.
Julian, enjoy the powerful and monumental height you acquired in the bunch of white asparagus. I was waiting for your recipe...cheers, geo
Look forward to each day wondering what you will "produce"...such as asparagus :)
Like this one, Julian, and the way you composed it.
