Veggies



It was 18° F outside as I snuck out my front door with a silver serving spoon to dig in my snow covered landscaping.  I didn't need much dirt, just enough to make my veggies look recently pulled from the ground.  Luckily, I don't think any of my neighbors saw me.  I came inside and filled a spray bottle with water, the one I use to give our birds a bath.  The birds did see me, one got excited about the possibility of a bath and the other 2 were quiet, hoping to become invisible if indeed it was bath time.  

I took my dirt, spray bottle and veggies upstairs to take pictures, lots of pictures.  



I sprayed the veggies with some water, rubbed them with dirt and sprinkled some around too.  It was fun.  When the dirt thawed, it's smell reminded me of spring...  

This photo was taken with my iphone and processed in Camera+ which gave the sky a bit more blue than was actually there.

Our winter really hasn't been too bad here in SW Ohio.  We only got a little over an inch of snow with the last storm, sorry to rub that in if you live on the east coast.  Thursday we had some freezing rain in the morning, cold and dreary, but when the clouds were breaking up letting the sun peak through, everything wet reflected the sunlight.  It was beautiful.  Paying attention to those little things has helped me see how there is beauty in winter, dare I say, as much as any of the other seasons...  

Today I am joining Kim Klassen's Friday Finds.  The weekly prompt from The Studio was veggies, the spark for my images.  My veggie images were given Kim's chocolate preset in LIghtroom and her texture thursday2014 in PS Elements.  My Finds this week were having fun photographing veggies and seeing beauty in winter.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!                                
Have a great weekend!!

  7. Your veggie photos are excellent! And you really went the extra mile for the presentation. I've given up worrying if my neighbor's see me with my camera and wonder about me. Life's too short to care about that! :-D

  13. Those are sensational photos, Michelle. Your veggies look like you've just dug them from your very own veggie patch. In fact I was really impressed that you'd managed to grow such luscious-looking produce until I read what you'd been up to, which made me laugh. Have a super rest-of-your-weekend, Bonny

  15. The snow must look magical in your area, Michelle. I wish it would snow here, but we have to go to the mountains, about an hour away, to see it. The sky picture is beautiful - it's such a pretty blue/green. Your veggies look great and ready to eat. I can't wait to plant roses this spring at our new home, and I'm wondering what month is best to do it.

    Have a good week ahead, Michelle.
