We’re Trying to Make Spring Arrive
A Hard Winter’s Effect
Despite keeping it covered for the winter, our beautiful fountain is showing damage from the extreme weather this year. I am trying to convince myself to consider it “added charm,” yet I hate to see some of our lions heads crumbling. Oh, what to do? I guess, just wait for spring. Once the fountain is running and splendor has returned to the garden, the old beasts will seem more at ease.
We had another beautiful wedding yesterday. It was sunny and 75 degrees out – perfect for a garden wedding, despite still officially being winter. (This morning it is 32 degrees, so we got lucky – again!) The bride and groom chose yellow, white, gray and black as their colors – which was an elegant, yet sunny and cheerful theme. I didn’t have a moment to take pictures yesterday, but here is a photo that I took this morning of one of the gorgeous Gold Strike roses that we used for the arrangements. Have a lovely day!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Perspective
While in Florida recently, I stepped outside one evening and was surprised to see a brilliant post-storm vista unfold. Fortunately, I had my cell phone with me and was able to catch a few photos as the sun yielded the horizon to nightfall.
This week’s challenge invites the photographer to use perspective to make the subject of the photo look like something other than what it is. The scene that I photographed was the view as I accompanied my mother to her mailbox. I used perspective to hide the street and cars and to compose the image, capturing only the elements I wanted to remember. For more on this week’s Photo Challenge …
