Um…excuse me, the calendar says SPRING!

Just when the mild temperatures had lulled us into the conviction that Spring had surely arrived…Mother Nature played a heavy, wet, early April Fool’s joke on New England.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Circle…

In response to the Daily Post’s weekly Photo Challenge for this week…

A Christmas gift from one of my daughters, who is quite the photographer, was a set of “macro” filters to fit my lens. I call them my “cheat macro lenses”. I’ve only begun to experiment with them. 🙂

This mug was a gift from another daughter. And the rooibos chai seen steeping within was a gift last year from this same daughter, who has taught me that THIS is not really tea!

And the circle of life is ever present…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Trio…

DSC_0360I admit it. I was not the kind of mother who dressed her daughters in lacy ruffles and patent leather shoes for the holidays. Shameful, I know!

This was taken on Easter Sunday at their grandparents’ house and all I can say is they were comfortable.  🙂

Glimpses of an August Garden . . .

The pole beans are producing, even as many other plants and flowers are past their peak and turning yellow or brown. Here, I’ve got some help with pole bean pest control:

Every August, this beautiful hibiscus produces blooms the size of lunch plates:

DSC_1235I like to try something new each year. I found this bell pepper plant at the Herb Farmacy in May. I had no idea peppers came in amethyst!

How’s your garden?

Here I am, coming in just under the wire… Normally, I cheat and just dig through my archives for the weekly photo challenge, but when I saw the theme for this week, I thought, “Aha!”
I have all those colors growing in my yard right now!

Since it’s in every photo, I didn’t need one for green. And my blue, indigo, and violet may not match everyone’s definitions…but darn close enough! 🙂
