I did a Photo An Hour with my macro lens on June tenth, and I have a ton of photos I love. I went through them multiple times trying to narrow down my selection, and even though I only photographed between six thirty in the morning and six thirty in the evening, I have nearly twenty photos! I don't want to inundate you, and slow down everyone's computers more than I already do, so I'm going to break this into two posts. :) Enjoy!
6:30am - 7:30am
Everything is going to flower in the garden right now, and I'm sad it's the end of the broccoli and lettuce/spinach. Though, the flowers are lovely. So we let them keep growing, even though we probably should have pulled them, and planted something else by now. Oh, right, what was I doing in the garden this early? Letting Moose out. That's the second thing I do every morning, right after I put in my contacts.
7:30am - 8:30am
Speaking of Moose. What a silly dog this little man is. He doesn't leave the back door if I don't go outside with him, and he needs to go on two walks a day. If I delay his walk at all, he bounces everywhere at home AND on the walk!!! He's so darn excitable, and cute! I can't get enough of him. He's always good for a laugh.
8:30am - 9:30am
While on our walk I spotted two awesome fungi! I never noticed seeing the Devil's Dip Stick around before, but a while back Kaylah on The Dainty Squid posted some photos, and I was enthralled. I wanted to find one, and I just so happened to down the street from my house! I don't normally walk with Moose and my camera, but I had to head back out with it to get both these awesome finds. I love the colors in the conch mushroom. Not a typical mushroom color for this area.
10:30am - 11:30am
Checking out my pocket contents on the back deck. A doggie poo bag, some rocks, a button, and a penny. If I see a button or penny on the ground, it will end up in my pocket. I have a hard time resisting collecting a rock on every walk I go on. I could probably fill a house with rocks, if I didn't curb my rock addiction. Hehe.
11:30am - 12:30pm
Working on a DIY. I was enjoying sitting out in the sunshine. I have to smile watching the sun create dancing shadows over my handy craft.
12:30pm - 1:30pm
Salad for lunch. We grew all the greens ourselves! So tasty. I also threw on some cherry tomatoes, cucumber slices, chick peas, zucchini triangles, bacon bits, parmesan cheese, and blue cheese dressing. When I was little my salads would mostly consist of chickpeas and tomatoes drenched in blue cheese dressing. Well, I guess some things don't change.
Laying out in the backyard while working on my DIY.
This Is where I'll leave you for tonight. Sorry this post is so late. I kept putting it off, and half forgetting that I hadn't completed it yet. Happy DIYing, chris.
