Photo Challenge #23 / Something New

20220603ma_0741“Waiting to be Planted” / Theme: Something New

A little about this photo…

Remember a few months ago when I showed the root system of my sweet potato? Well, here are my new sweet potato slips getting ready to be planted. Just hanging out on the shelf. Waiting. (I’ve never planted sweet potatoes before. We’ll see how they do.)

Photo Challenge #22 / The Sky

20220514ma_0673“Soft Clouds in a Blue Sky” / Theme: The Sky

A little about this photo…

This is a look up at the sky at Fort Mississauga on Lake Ontario. I love that blue and those wispy clouds. So pretty and light. The perfect spring day! And I just love the facade of an old and crumbly fort. I can just feel the history!

Photo Challenge #21 / Wanderlust

20220514ma_0643“Looking Across the River” / Theme: Wanderlust

A little about this photo…

One of my favorite vacation things-to-do is to visit historic sites. These historic pilgrimages definitely qualify for “wanderlust” in me! This is the view of Fort Niagara at the mouth of the Niagara River. I’ve never been. But seeing this fort makes me want to go visit. Maybe one of these days…

Photo Challenge #20 / Starts with an M

20220512ma_0628“Memory” / Theme: Starts with an M

A little about this photo…

This locket belonged to my grandmother. That’s her photo (I think she was in her early 20s). Anyhow, this locket has a photo of my grandfather and my dad. It’s probably not the most expensive piece of jewelry I’ve ever seen. But the memories it carries mean a whole lot more. This coming week would have been her birthday. Happy heavenly birthday, Oma!

Photo Challenge #19 / Numbered

20220429xs_046“Number 8” / Theme: Numbered

A little about this photo…

Ever since this new building went up, I’ve noticed the interesting pillars. Then it dawned on me. It’s a roman numeral eight! VIII. Is this building number 8? 🙂

Photo Challenge #18 / Cheeky

20220413ma_0529“White Squirrel!” / Theme: Cheeky

A little about this photo…

White squirrels are NOT the norm around us. So, this guy definitely caught my attention as he was climbing all around the tree. I thought it’d work for the “cheeky” prompt.

Photo Challenge #17 / Green Thumb

20220422ma_0564“Spring Garden” / Theme: Green Thumb

A little about this photo…

After quite a cold winter, it’s nice to see all the spring flowers. These are the tiny daffodils that grace our front beds. Not sure I have exactly what you’d call a green thumb (at least for indoor plants!), but I guess I have one for my outdoor plants!

Photo Challenge #16 / Tradition

20220414ma_0534“Every Year” / Theme: Tradition

A little about this photo…

This time of year is so full of tradition. Somber tradition. Serious tradition. Fun tradition. Today, I am depicting the fun (and yummy) part of Easter. Since I can’t eat chocolate, I have come to appreciate jelly beans even more. These colorful little bits of happiness. My favorites? Green, orange, yellow. Oh, and the black jelly beans. Yum!

Photo Challenge #15 / Bloom

20220408ma_0523a“Blooming Spring” / Theme: Bloom

A little about this photo…

Snowdrops are one of the first signs of Spring. Usually, by this time, they’re gone. But it’s been so cool this year that we still have some. They just begged me to pick them and bring them inside for a little photoshoot.

Photo Challenge #14 / April Fool

20220327ma_0482a“Robins in the Snow” / Theme: April Fool

A little about this photo…

I didn’t think I’d be able to use the ‘April Fool’ prompt, but here I am! Yesterday was April Fool’s Day and the weather felt like it was playing a little trick on us. A little snow? You bet! But the robins are out despite the snow. Because they know the truth. It’s spring!
