I just got back from a morning bike ride. My friend, Ann, and I did our regular 8 miles, but, unlike usual, we stopped at a tea shop and had some hot chocolate at the end. You will see us sharing hot chocolate together in one of the pictures. The prompts were 1) kiss, 2) askew, 3) fragrant, 4) simple, and 5) plant. What fun we had pulling all these pictures together during our ride! Come with us and meet some of the people and peek in on some of the activities we passed along the bike path!
We passed this young couple pushing a baby carriage and walking their pug on a leash. When we passed them the first time I said to them, “Ah this brings back memories.” When we passed them a second time going home I thought they may just be willing to pose for one of my prompts. They were. The man said, “Do you want me to kiss the dog or my wife?” I told him I thought about qualifying that when I asked the question, but that I didn’t think he needed it. He didn’t. Wife is kissed, yeah!
This prompt kept both Ann and I looking and looking. We were almost home when we spied this camper with its awning all askew. Phew! I was going to resort to taking pictures of my living room with dog toys spread out everywhere. I didn’t have to, thankfully, because I had just picked up all the toys and vacuumed before leaving on my bike and I didn’t want to have to strew them out for a staged picture.
We passed a farmer making silage out of his old corn stalks. My how the air was filled with the fragrance of fall. You can see the fine bits of silage floating in the air as it is blown back in the container. It sparkled in the morning sunlight giving us the sense that we were watching fairy dust being made. It was delightfully magical.
We passed this lady digging the soil in a little plot by her trailer. When I told her what I was doing and asked if I could take a picture of her with her plants, she said, “Oh, yes, but I think we ought to go over by my flower bed. It would be much better over there.” So there you have it, the woman working with her plants in the better place in her yard.
I surely had fun today putting this together for you. Thanks, again, Ashley for hosting this truly wonderful hunt. If you’re passing by here and don’t know about the scavenger hunt just click here. Maybe you’d like to join us, and next week I could be checking out your photos, yes?
All is grace,
