I know it will seem lazy or like I’m cheating, but I really do want to participate in Nancy’s Challenge. It’s just that I seem to do a LOT of posts on Blue and I’m not sure I can come up with anything new to share.
So here is one I did most recently…and at the end I’ve included several others I did on the topic Blue.
I do hope you will check some of the links out and tell me what you think.
Oh Wait! How about THIS??
What do you mean, “over kill”?
My poor Primroses are so confused…
All I can think of is the old Woody Allen movie “Everything you Always Wanted to Know about Sex”, where Woody, standing at the front of the line of about to “escape” sperm, shouts a warning to all the others,
“Go back, go back! It’s just a hand job!” Or something like that.
It’s late November and 30 degrees here!!!!
“Go back, go back, my Sweet Primroses!! It’s a Weather TRICK!! It’s not even close to Spring yet!!!”
OK so I have a lot of photo shoots with a strange group of “models”.
And it is definitely when I have the most FUN!!!
Once upon a time, there was a tiny village and they fell in love with a monster who came to visit.
The Village Dogs just loved this visitor and knew that even though she LOOKED terrifying, she wasn’t! Maybe it was the way she took care of her monster sister?
And the sister had a friend, nick-named Badfish, but not because he was bad. He was just “BAD”.
The Monster stayed for the holidays and helped decorate the tall parts of the tree the tiny villagers couldn’t reach.
Then the village teenagers, a non-violent gang, invited the monster’s whole family to join in the annual Cow Tipping Contest! What an Honor!
The Monsters didn’t quite get the “tipping” part but definitely enjoyed climbing the cow!
Next, there was the annual competition to see who could climb the tallest Blue Building, and the Monsters were a huge hit!! Their audience raved about it!
The Monsters loved their new Village but some of the town’s people were upset by one of their bad habits!
(although maybe not. One of those giant turds appears to be an EGG!!!)

Macro, micro…sort of. I just loved this teeny tiny blossom…
Landscape. Much to my neighbors dismay, I do NOT landscape. Hey, when it grows wild like this why would I? Maybe I did take it too far when I planted flowers in a toilet in my front yard, but I was making a point. I have lived here long before their houses were even built.
And at our other home, Nature does a much better job of landscaping than we could anyway.
Oh we tried landscaping…lined the driveways with rocks and boulders. I even planted 30 Primroses along this lower driveway.
Not really sure which of our “landscaping” visitors had a problem with all those flowers but hey lasted literally TWO DAYS!
It could have been dinner for any of these guys…
We did have to put in a retaining wall of huge rocks, but it was so ugly, I have been slowly filling it with succulents that so far, no one is eating. It will take me YEARS to fill in all the crevices and cracks but then it will be beautiful!
In the mean time, the boys and I will continue to haul Beach Rocks from the San Juan Islands to landscape the little side yard…
Green, orange, yellow.
There. Caught up.
I love Nancy Merrill’s photography. If you have never visited her site, she’s quite talented.
Of course, I adore her subject matter.
She has been sponsoring this Photo a Week challenge and I am inspired by her chosen topics. This week it is “Whimsical”.
My minds reels, but here are a few of mine I thought fit the challenge. (Of course, I may be mixing up the terms Whimsical and Smart Ass…)
I just crack myself up sometimes….
