“Globularia cordifolia (heart-leaved globe daisy) is a species of flowering plant in the family Planataginaceae, native to the mountains of central and southern Europe, and western Turkey.
It is a mat-forming evergreen perennial growing to 5 cm (2 in) tall by 20 cm (8 in) wide, with spherical, fluffy, pale lilac flowers in summer. In cultivation it requires the open aspect, full sun and sharp drainage of its native habitat, and is best grown in an alpine garden.”
I’ve been thinking about this image for weeks if not months. I’ve told friends and family that I wanted to make an image of bacon in a skillet. I told them that I would go to the butcher’s and get a “special” subject and title the image “Consider The Bacon”. I took action yesterday and this is the picture.
As I processed it and spent time with it though I realized that it really wasn’t about the bacon at all. It was my mother’s skillet that was driving this process. I inherited this skillet more than 25 years ago. Wherever I’ve gone, it’s been with me and I expect that it will continue in service for someone long after I’ve stopped cooking.
