Today is a picture post. First we have the world’s largest florist’s chrysanthemum.

But the big news is that we’ve got a new Yup. That's our 'scope all right. DigitalBlue&#153 microscope that hooks up to our new home computer through the USB port. Here’s a pic of a lacewing that was caught in a spiderweb in the laundry room.

In other big news, Emily blew her first bubblegum bubble. (She looks a little insane because she’s so excited to see herself in a mirror blowing a bubble for the first time.)
