I picked these beets from my garden this morning, turned around and say the white Plexiglas like tabletop still standing in my yard from my birthday dinner outdoors. Then I thought to grab my camera. My friend and photographer Bill, has recently revealed his beautiful and technically perfect images of botanicals on his blog. I guess you can say my beet portraits are inspired from him.

I sowed beet seeds in my garden for the first time last year and fell in love with their flavour. I’m looking forward to eating these two lovelies for dinner tonight. Fresh salmon and beet salad from the garden sounds just right!
