The Roots

Here is another photo from the corn field that I captured yesterday.

I have never looked, or had a reason to look, at the roots of a stalk of corn.  It looks like it is doing a balancing act on the narrow tips of the outer root system.

Blonde Bombshell!

While on my way home from visiting my father today I stopped on the side of the road to take some pictures of corn.  I took a few pictures for this weeks Daily Post Challenge, Narrow (posting later).  When I looked at the husk of this corn it looked like hair.  I decided to edit it using the painting filter in Superphoto Plus and it really looks like wind-blown blonde hair.

What do you think?

Open the door mom! 25/30

Another late night visitor.

Arai’s mommy works 2nd shift, so she generally uses her key and comes on in. But last night she rings the doorbell. Why? When I open the door she tells me that there is a green thing and a brown thing by the door.  So I instantly think she is telling me so I can get a picture.  So I run back in the house and get my camera.

When I come. back she is trying to fuss (you cannot truly fuss with your mom) that she wanted me to get the bugs out-of-the-way not take any pictures.  Lol what can I say…

I did not clear the way after I took the pictures, she had no choice but to go pass this tiny creature.


I like looking at animals and insects and seeing how they are created to blend in with their surroundings.  This creatures body resembles a leaf.

Miniature Golf 22/30

I think I may be the only person on earth that has not played miniature golf.  Am I alone or is there someone else that has never played?

Third time is a charm 20/30

When Traci and I went to Wildwood NJ I took this photograph as we were leaving.  It was supposed to be used as one of my 30 Day Challenge pictures but it never made it to WP.  (still a bit behind in posting).

But it did make it to my IG account


Between the Cracks

While checking my IG messages I found out that I was published in our local newspaper, Courier Post, as one of the nine selected photos for this weeks Sunday paper.

….And he is back! 19/30

Back in May I made a post about my Spare Room, which housed a couple of frogs.  Then I found out that there was something else lurking in my spare room, a snake.

I have been waiting for the steps to be fixed but when something is free it rarely happens in the time frame that you may want.

So the other night I noticed that the frogs were back.  My grandson Arai was intrigued to see the frog just sitting there.

This frog had no fear of us, no matter how many times we went up and down the steps he did not move.



Although I have taken pictures everyday I am a bit behind in posting for my 30 Day Challenge. I will be correcting that today (hopefully).

I had the wrong settings on the camera so picture quality is not great at all.

The chicks have hatched! 18/30

The Chicks and Hens have bloomed.

I was expecting really brilliant and detailed flowers since the plant itself is not very detailed or colorful. But it is not.  It looks very delicate and the petals are a very soft pink.

What do you think?
