Karma’s February Photo HuntPosted: February 22, 2012
I was hoping to participate in Karma’s February Photo Hunt with all new photos, but have had to resort to the archives for a couple. The first one (flake) was easy as Mother Nature provided us with a lot of flakes yesterday. The snowflakes were so big that they almost look like coconut flakes falling from the sky. Cornflakes and/or coconut flakes were going to be my back-ups if we didn’t get some snow. The other possibility was too insulting to consider. Besides, I don’t know any flakes (other than my occasional forays into flakiness).
I thought bow would be easy until I tried to find one. I was stumped for a while no matter how I pronounced the word (bou as in to bend or incline; or boh as in “bow and arrow” or a looped bit of string, ribbon, etc.). This morning it occurred to me that I make two bows every morning when I put on my sneakers.
The mug I wanted to use wouldn’t allow me to put his face on the blog. Bella didn’t seem interested, either. I ended up settling for this:
I’m glad I spotted this little piggy with his big mug of a face otherwise I would have had to use my own mug. A coffee mug would have sufficed too, but where’s the fun in that?
I have two candidates for row from my last two hikes. I found the fence posts in Towner’s Woods. The row of trees that follows are from the Buckeye Trail.
I am going to have to skip “bun.” I don’t eat much bread so finding a bun at home was impossible, and we haven’t been eating out much lately (the food at home is much more healthful). I don’t know anyone who is pregnant (so no “bun in the oven” shots). The only other option when it comes to buns wouldn’t be appropriate for my PG-rated blog.
The vine pictured above was as close as I could come to finding a heart shape in nature. The archives turned up a couple of other hearts that are more, well, heart shaped.
Redbud leaves would have been perfect, but there are no redbud leaves to be found right now.
That leaves one more. Leap!
That one also had to come from the archives. My family members would be willing to leap for the sake of a photo, but not for the sake of being posted on the blog. Bo, on the other hand, doesn’t mind being on the blog at all. He’s a good dog that way.
That’s it for Karma’s February Photo Hunt. Thanks for dropping by to have a look. And a great big thank you to Karma for putting this together. As always, it was fun. 🙂
