Time to post the finds for the latest Scavenger Hunt. That's a couple of weeks running now that I am not scrambling last minute to put this together . . . feels good. Lot's on the plate today so I'm keeping the chit-chat short. Looking forward to browsing the fabulous submissions later on.
My friend Alison has CP. On hot summer days she would love to run through the sprinkler but her electric wheelchair would not take too kindly to that so she settles for a refreshing hand shower.
Clusters of petals form clusters of blossoms that delight this woman's soul . . . oh how I love hydrangeas.
These seedheads from centranthus ruber, "Jupiter's Beard", look like little snowflakes in July. They self seed prolifically and will bring a fresh crop of little pink blossoms next season.
This eight-legged critter spun her wispy web between spirea branches
and blades of iris leaves in the flower bed. Kind of gives me the creeps.
After seeing the spider in my "Eight" shot you may need to calm down a bit (I know I do). I used a blue filter on these lovely rose petals as the colour blue is considered beneficial to the mind and body. It slows your metabolism and produces a calming effect. Light blue in particular is associated with health, healing, tranquility, understanding and softness.
