Sunday Scenes – July 15, 2012

These shots were taken inside the community garden where the grandies and I have a plot.

The first one is of some of our tomatoes that we have growing. We have had quite the crop, and I made pasta sauce with some of them. It was yummy.

Emmie is eating the roma tomatoes like they are candy. She loves them. The fact we have grown them from scratch has amplified her love of them.

The photo above is of one of our sunflowers that is leaving us. She was a beauty in life, and I think she is still beautiful.

The photos below are of varied gates to other community plots. I love the blue post with the flowers painted on it. I love the white entrance…very simple, yet I find it lovely.

I really enjoy the creative edge that some individuals have used in their entrances, gates and fencing.

The Sand Castle Girls, by Chris Bohjalian comes out on Tuesday, and I will definitely be buying it.

I have bought The House at Tyneford, by Natasha Solomons. I loved her novel, Mr. Rosenblum Dreams in English, and hope this is just as enjoyable.

Fences – Man-made & Otherwise

So they all went away from the little log house. The shutters were over the windows, so the little house could not see them go. It stayed there inside the log fence, behind the two big oak trees that in the summertime had made green roofs for Mary and Laura to play under.
Laura Ingalls Wilder

Don’t ever take a fence down until you know why it was put up.
Robert Frost

I like to take pictures of lots of things: people-such as my nephews, my dogs, and just interesting objects that I see. For instance, I might take a picture of flowers by the side of the road, an old sign or a fence.
Lacey Chabert

Love your neighbor as yourself; but don’t take down the fence.
Carl Sandburg

These fences are just three of the ones I took pictures of for my grandies. They pointed them out to me on our walk through the community gardens.

Speaking of fences, there are emotional fences, as well as man-made ones that we construct. We often fence ourselves in within our minds and hearts in order to protect ourselves from emotional overload, from a trauma, or from being vulnerable.

Sunday Scenes February 19, 2012

It is time for Straight Out of the Camera Sunday! It is also time for Shadow Shot Sunday 2. The photograph above was taken last week, unbeknownst to my two grandies. I liked how they were wrapped up in thoughts and shadows.
