Ahhh... I realize this is an old post, but I love reading this blog and absolutely love all of your photos. great stuff. I got here by way of looking for info on the pink cornsilk growing out of my ears of corn... could not find much, but I came across your photo and a few others... apparently, it's a good thing! And I was singing that Joni Mitchell song just yesterday while peeling apples from our trees. :)
