Hey everyone! Greetings and salutations! I hope you’re all having a great day, and that you’re really comfortable, ’cause this is going to be a long stretch.
Over the weekend, I took some (i.e. A LOT) of flower pictures, and I thought that maybe you’d want to see them! Be forewarned: this is a lot. As in 100+ pictures.
Oh, and this post is dedicated to the people who even read this. It’s very long!!!
Last Friday we went to a friend’s house for Bible study, and the traffic took a while.
“I dare you to move, I dare you to move”- (Dare You To Move, Switchfoot) <— everyone stuck in traffic
Got to take some interesting pictures of the sun’s rays hitting the window. Is it called solar flare?
Coffee! Or in my case, hot chocolate. 🙂
After probably an hour or so of driving in the traffic, we made it there. There was a lot of flowers there, and I just got out my camera and began to wander around the garden. (I can’t help it! It’s an automatic reflex thing.)
There were a lot of neat flowers there.. as well as some mean bugs.
I think the majority of pictures there were pansies, although there were a few that I didn’t know the name of.
In the garden there was an old tree on which grew a big ole’ mushroom. I wonder how it would taste if it was edible?
A cool mushroom growing off an old tree!
I also had a nice little impromptu photoshoot with a little roly-poly.
(NO HARM WAS DONE TO THE ROLY-POLY.)
These leaves are of several tomato plants that were growing there, I think.
And these are of more pansies.
Not these, though. These are of trees.
I did a poor attempt at getting some pictures of silhouettes as well.
And there was a swarm of ants on the ground too.
I’m pretty irked at how so many of these ended up being blurry!
I got some pictures of tomato plant pictures, if they were tomato plants…
If you look carefully at the pictures of just dirt, you can see a few worms and other roly-polies here and there.
I got some pictures inside the house as well.
I took some pictures of the really cool window inside, that was kinda like the sunroof of a car, except on a house. It would awesome if there was a floor and a rope ladder, and it turned into a tiny little attic room. I can dream, can’t I?
Then, late at night, there were some twinkle lights plugged in. What’s it called when you have blurry pictures? Bokeh?
That was rather lengthy, wasn’t it? There’s some more, but we’re almost done! Today I got to take some pictures of even more flowers, please forgive me.
Wow! That was really long!
If you’re one of the few who looked at each and every single picture, you, my friend, have determination!
As you may know, my team, the Ladybugs, kinda need some more points to shift up into at least second place. And as you may know I’m ultra- competitive. And as you may know, I can talk about something forever, so I apologize in advance!
Let’s get on with it, shall we?
ANNOUNCING… MY FAVORITE SEASON…..
I love winter. First because I was born in it, and second because it’s so nice and cold. Living in a snow covered world is like living in a snow cone.. You can actually eat snow, you know! It’s delicious.
I love snowfall. Taking pictures during a blizzard is really one of my favorite things to do, because- well, you’d have to try it to know what I’m talking about. 🙂
There’s a stone bench in my neighborhood, and whenever the snow falls, seeing that nice big thick layer of snow just makes me happy for some reason.
Any thick layer of snow on anything makes me happy, even on railings!
There are two words that will make me happy during winter: sledding and skating. I just love them like the proud Canadian I am. 😛 Every year that the Winter Olympics comes on (like this year) I’m always watching two things: the bobsledding, and the figure skating. AHH!! Rink time is my favorite time in the winter. (Man, don’t I wish I had some pictures!)
Another thing in the long long list of winter things is hiking. Yeah, I know. It’s too cold, too hard, too tiring. Trust me to choose the hard things to enjoy!
Winter photography, though, is beautiful. And my favorite kind. (My most favorite!)
*sighs happily* Well, that’s me for you. Daydreaming about winter when it’s hot and summer outside.
