Silver garlic

Staying indoors and mainly in bed prompts me to do a lot of reading. I've reread The Secret Life of Bees and am almost finished with The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society. Between those, I have reread cover-to-cover the Masters of Contemporary Photography series, featuring such photographers as Annie Liebovitz (see the link) and my personal favorite, Duane Michals. Stimulating stuff for my feverish brain, which along with my camera, produced the above silver garlic for you. It was that or oranges or lemons, which I squeeze daily!

Tomorrow something else from my apartment, or else a photo taken before my germs moved in.

Nice garlic shot, I hope you are soon well, eat that garlic along with your citrus juices and you soon will be, or at least there will be no vampires around your house! Haha.

Pretty nice Garlic composition!
Any germs portraits before they all disappear? lol
Thyme + apple peels (not potato peels ok?) works wonders agains a cold.

I found a great site for a bed ridden gal! http://librivox.org
They are audiobooks in the public domain! There is a huge selection in French too:)

Great still life.
I enjoyed Secret Lives...didn't get into the Gurnsey book, but I will try it again since a book club is reading it for January.
Hope you are 100% better any day.
