SHS Photo Challenge 24

A sunny day with lots to do so I am jumping right in.  Here are my interpretations for this week's prompts . . . 

1.  Whimsy
 The fact that a good Canadian girl has a whimsical Uncle Sam in her home is a point of whimsy on its own, but the fact is, all of my grandparents were born in the US and I have many American cousins and friends that are true treasures to me.  God bless America!

2.  Create
 Some of the hats I have crocheted for my granddaughters.

3.  Dust
 This is what happens when you spend so much time taking pictures or crocheting.  I will get to it later.

4.  Seed or Sprout
 My lovely Mother's Day rose from last year is sprouting new growth as are so many other plants in the garden.  Peonies, hydrangea, clematis, campanula, rhubarb, chives, peppermint, spearmint.  I don't see anything happening with my Virginia Creeper though so am concerned it maybe didn't make it.  I only planted it late summer last year so we shall see. 

5.  Swing or Drop
Heart-shaped stained glass sun-catcher with dragonfly pendant . . . both swing with the slightest breeze.  So pretty.


Take a few moments to check out the wonderful submissions at Ashley's link-up . . .
