Photo Challenge #30 / Far From It

20200723ma_0937“Perfectly Playful Carrots” / Theme: Far From It

A little about this photo…

Here is a small sampling of some of the carrots I harvested this week. As you can see, there are some beautiful carrots. And there are also some carrots who decided to have a little fun. Like the carrot with the big nose? Or the little tooth-carrot? Don’t forget the carrots that think they’re some sort of underwater sea-creatures. And then there is the lone carrot that is pale yellow! Where did that guy come from?! While they’re not quite perfectin fact, they’re far from perfection!they taste quite good.

Photo Challenge #29 / A Day in the Life

20200703ma_0824“No Time to Beet Around the Bush” / Theme: A Day in the Life

A little about this photo…

This is definitely a day in my life right now. This was the first real “harvest” of the summer (not counting the snap peas). And this is my first time growing beets, so I’m pretty happy with the result.

Photo Challenge #27 / Shadows

20200701ma_0759“Sunshine in the Garden” / Theme: Shadows

A little about this photo…

I saw this shadow while out working in the garden one morning and thought it would be the perfect way for me to use this photo prompt. I love how the sun shines through the little in-cut flower details along the top of the can. (For those who are curious, those are cucumbers and beets growing in the background.)

Please note: This is not the watering can I use to water. It’s more of a decorative one that hangs out in the garden. Because… well, yes, water does come out of those flower cut-outs. That’s not exactly practical even if it IS beautiful!

Photo Challenge #26 / Plant

20200614ma_0717“Dino-Stick” / Theme: Plant

A little about this photo…

I found this stick lying on the ground. And I was so intrigued by it, I picked it up. Because, well, doesn’t it look like some prehistoric dinosaur? May I present to you, Dino-Stick. (But sadly, I’m afraid this guy might be last one of its kind.)

Photo Challenge #18 / Greenery

20200430vixia_2722“Under the Grow Lights” / Theme: Greenery

A little about this photo…

My tomato seedlings are growing well! It’s nice to see the greenery inside the house. The leaves outside are just starting to come out. And our tulips and daffodils are in full bloom. But these guys get to stay indoors a little bit longer before they get planted outside. One thing I find fascinating is that, while I planted all the seeds at the same time, some of the seedlings are a lot bigger than others. (You can see some of the smaller ones in the background.)

Note: I love how the purple light of the grow light can be seen in this photo.

Photo Challenge #19 / It’s Spring

“Seedling” / Theme: It’s Spring

A little about this photo…

Okay, for this prompt, what I really wanted to capture was a photo of a robin. But, the robins were NOT cooperating. (I’ve been trying for weeks!)

So, I decided to go with another photo that immediately conjures up the image of springtime for me… 🙂 This shot is taken with my macro 100mm lens, which gives that beautiful shallow depth of field.
