Bernie Wong

Ask me anything   Life in a little town West of Atlanta.



Sometimes reblogs but mostly digital photos by me taken with Canon PowerShot ELPH 520HS. Occasionally analog photos taken with Diana F+ "Dreamer".

Mostly plants, nature, food and design. Sometimes kitties, music, and anything I find inspiring or intriguing.



Could have probably gone to bed 2 hours ago…but caffeine, and rehearsal and had to bake a batch of biscotti for a care package. Cocoa nib and pecan.

In bird news: No change in the wrens, the catbirds in wax myrtle have fledged, and looks like the other catbird nest is abandoned, poor egg.

This Bernie is going to bed as soon as the biscotti is done and cooled.

Bread Talk
but but but talk to me about the bread
Crusty sourdough from Rose Cottage in Pine Mountain GA. :) They make it the old fashion way…comes frozen/parbaked.. I refresh it in the oven.. then it’s all warm inside, and crusty on the outside ready for butter. Shoot, now I want some…and I’m all out.
