A Leaf Was Calling for Macro Friday


leaf in the grass


As I was washing up some dishes yesterday my eye kept coming back to a leaf in the grass in the backyard.   It was calling to me as the light was filtering through it and the grass surrounding it.   I just felt compelled to grab the camera and take it’s picture.  Down on my belly in the wet grass I went with the macro lens on my Canon.  I left it as I took it SOOC.   Seems I got some nice bokeh in it too.

Laura is our host for Macro Friday.  I will be joining here today.   I do hope our friends in the US are not feeling too full after yesterdays Thanksgiving dinner.  Valerie

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
