Photo Friday – Ducks

Last weekend we had the good fortune of being able to hang out at a lake. Quality water time (on my part) and reading time (on Adam’s part) were spent. And to top it all off, just before we left we got to watch a very fun paddling of ducks swim by. Complete with a smaller paddling of not-quite-baby, not-quite-teenage ducks. Darling. And the brown and white duck just kept grabbing my attention. So I snapped away.

Photo Friday – Berries (and other good things)

Berries are here! Let’s celebrate. I’m thinking berries with cream, whip cream, on shortcake, in salads, in kuchen, in drinks, in. . . EVERYTHING! 🙂 I love that our garden is starting to show the berries of our labor. 😉 To be honest, berries are not hard to grow. The labor comes with the picking. Or the eating instead of picking. And now that the weekend is here I’m going to fill little buckets with sweet/tart deliciousness, take time to smell the flowers, and look at the (not sure if they’re poisonous) mushrooms. Which means I’m assuming they are poisonous. So I will just enjoy them through pictures. Hope you have a great weekend. 🙂

Photo Friday – Farm Fresh

Seeing Ben’s beautiful photos inspired me to get back on the wagon with photo fridays. And what better way than to capture the first delivery of summer produce from our local farmers’ co-op. With our cool, rainy season so far, most of the bag was filled with greens, but the items that caught my attention were the beautiful pops of red, pink, and purple mixed in. So this is really an ode to redish edibles. Redibles. 🙂

Photo Friday – Yummy

I like to photograph food. In fact I should probably write an Obsession Session on it. I take pictures of food all the time. Out at restaurants, at home, at friends’ houses. There is just something so magical about capturing a beautiful dish of food in a gorgeous picture. Maybe it is because it makes the experience last longer. Maybe it’s because it’s calorie free. 😉 I’m pretty sure it’s because food is such a multi-sensual thing and finding an angle where the dish looks beautiful is just a way for me to savor the meal in a different way. This last week I had the opportunity to go to the city for errands and (even better) to visit some friends (and a handsome new baby). It also didn’t hurt that I got to squeeze in a visit to my favorite restaurant. So of course I snapped away. 🙂

Photo Friday – May Flowers

It’s probably a tad obvious to go from a photo friday about April showers into one about May flowers. But that’s what this week has been full of. D & B have been making visits to the nursery and coming back with containers of flowers to add to the beds. The veteran plants have been doing their part to prove we don’t need anymore petals. The smell of lilacs is beginning to perfume the air and everyday a new flower emerges from one location or another. All in all I love the month of May. The weather starts warming up, the world starts to become colorful again, and it also houses my birthday. 🙂 And this year we’re putting our book on sale. So one new thing to add to the fun of May. But mostly this week is all about flowers. Beautiful little faces, delicate lacy petals, and the fruit that some of them turn into. 🙂 Hooray for May.
