Spring has officially sprung here. We have all the traditional spring flowers popping up everywhere. In the banner you can see my lovely crocus hugging the brick borders along my driveway. It is such a wonderful time of year for taking pictures. This week’s prompts on the scavenger hunt were 1) new, 2) life, 3) fragrance, 4) pink and 5) obvious. I have those who travel with me hunting right along with me now, and it’s not unusual to have my companion for the day say, “Doesn’t that look like a good shot for ______ ?” This post every Sunday is getting to be a group effort. I love it! Community is always a good thing! Here’s what we came up with this week:
We have a new coffee cafe in town so I took a picture of our table and breakfast there that particular morning. The manager asked if I were a photographer. I smiled really big, but had to admit I just took pictures. She asked if I would post my pictures on their Facebook page. I said I would and I did. She was so happy. Do you see what I mean about this being a community hunt? If you’re on Facebook, you may want to check out Round the World Coffee Cafe. It’s a great NEW place!
My daughter gave me this night light for mother’s day last year. Because I am a baby nurse she got me a mermaid with her baby. I just got it out of its storage place to replace the winter snowmen roasting mashmallows over a fire night light that was there for winter. This night light is all about new life!
Well, it’s Saturday night and I just got my Easter dinner in the refrigerator. Everything is marinating for dinner tomorrow afternoon and the egg and sausage casserole is prepped for baking after Easter sunrise service. “What isn’t done?” I ask myself, and then I remember. I don’t have a photo for the “pink” prompt for the scavenger hunt. My DH and I always try to take a walk just before twilight so we donned our coats and hats because the wind here still chills to the bone. I snapped 20 pink pictures. This one was on a 10-second timer so I could run and join my husband under these beautiful ornamental trees lining one of the main streets of our downtown. I have to inset what we saw right across the street from where this picture was taken, though. It was parked in a lot just to the left of where the main picture ends. Now that is a pink truck!
