My first favorite singer. Rest in peace.
Recently, my friend and I made bread and butter pickles. I had never done pickling before. It is a bit of work but the results are so worth the effort. We were inspired by the beautiful pickling cucumbers at one of my favorite farm stands at the Roslindale Farmers Market, Boston.
We used an old family recipe belonging to my friend’s grandmother. We also looked online at other recipes for bread and butter pickles and combined ingredients we liked. Here are the ingredients we used (without measurements.)
BREAD AND BUTTER PICKLES
- apple cider vinegar
- mustard seeds
- celery seeds
Here are photos showing the steps.
I had a lovely day with friends strolling around the Forest Hills Cemetery on a beautiful September day. A few of photos from that day.
The drought in Boston has caused Lake Hibiscus shoreline to recede. Very sad.

Today my friend and fellow photographer and I went to Millennium Park in Boston for a photo shoot. It was a beautiful day for a walk.
We ran into a lot a wild life: swans, a beaver, a woodpecker, ducks, a blue heron, cardinals, and other native birds. I took these photos.
Totally awesome add for Bernie Sanders. Worth a look.
