FOTD Challenge ~ Still Asleep Daisy

sleepin daisy

During our wanders…you can’t really call them walks when I stop to take photos so often!… the daisies were pop’n up everywhere. This cluster of not-yet-awake daisies caught my eye.

This is in response to Cee’s FOTD Photo Challenge

My favourite from 2017…

Wow. That’s a tall order to fill.

From the photo that generated the most reactions on your blog to the one that has the deepest emotional pull on you, define “favorite” in whatever way works best for you. Your chosen image doesn’t have to be one you’ve already shared in a previous Photo Challenge. Anything goes, as long as it’s a photo from 2017. If you want to share several images, that’s fine too — a “best of 2017” gallery could be fun if you can’t settle on one photo.

The photo that received the most attention was a little visitor to my garden.

I do love this visiting bee, but it’s not my favourite moment/photo from 2017.

Perhaps this photo… I definitely am tickled pink with it. (giggle) And it was a wonderful day just hanging out taking photos with my daughter.

But I think my favourite photo of 2017 would be one of my winter ones. I took these photos while out walking. I’m proud that this past year I continued with doing things such as walking in the cold, to work towards a healthier me.

Thank you for visiting. I wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season and that 2018 is full of kindness & gratefulness.

We’ll get a-round to it!

Last spring while on a photo journey through the Niagara Parks, we stopped at the Floral Clock. There were so many photos to be found as we walked around the clock 😉

This week, share your take on rounded.” it’s a broad theme, so I look forward to your personal interpretations, whether you choose to focus on a curving street, limbs caught mid-way through a dance, a bowl of fruit (think of all the round shapes!), or any other object, landscape, or texture that fits within your definition of the theme. As always, less-literal takes are equally welcome.
