Lyshas photographic challenge is always that: a challenge.
This week the prompts were cook, outside, hair, shadow, your choice.
COOK: I rediscovered my grandmother's cast iron gem irons the other day and talk about a walk down memory lane. I think gem irons are a New Zealand thing; all I could find out said they were. SO I made ginger gems and it took me right back to my childhood (oh, that spicy smell). These are one of the few things I have of my grandmother's. It felt like she was standing right next to me. This is before they went in the oven; after they came out they didn't hang around long enough to get a photo!
OUTSIDE: Today is a beautiful spring day and sitting out on the deck for a cuppa, I spied this cobweb on one of the chairs. Looking at the web design, I think the spider was having a quiet spliff somewhere. Where oh where is the housework fairy?
HAIR: This is a visit to the archives, a bit of a cheat I know, but fun! For Ian's 70th birthday we had a Star Wars Murder Mystery party with a few friends. Here is Ian with his Rod Stewart hair! and his assistant, me.
SHADOW: This shadow is my trellis and climbing roses and I thought I'd give you a wave to say hello!
YOUR CHOICE: This is a New Zealand kowhai tree (pronounced cor-fai) in our wild area, it's our national flower along with the red pohutukawa. This tree follows the tui cherry in the spring feeding continuity for TUI (our national bird, a nectar feeder). They seem to get drunk on the nectar. I have heard (don't know how true it is) that sometimes they even fall out of the tree.
I hope you enjoy this week's lineup. Have a wonderful week.
