Yesterday at Costco, while everyone else was perusing the roses for Valentine’s Day, I grabbed a bunch of spider mums. Their intense hue is the result of dye, as I discovered this morning when some of the color had leached back into the water in the vase. I wonder what color the unadulterated blooms would be — a lighter pink, or full-on white?
Regardless, they inspired a new challenge:
Every day for the next two weeks For 14 days I’m going to find and photograph something worth posting. An excuse to familiarize myself more with the point-and-shoot digital camera I bought before my trip to the Virgin Islands years ago, but got waylaid with the convenience of the iPhone … and also to pay more attention to the interesting and beautiful things that surround me.
