Our Project 52 Week 10: Green

I can’t believe this is week 10 of our project 52!!!




Spring is springing! This week, we had wonderful warm temperatures that just called for you to go outside and enjoy and to dig your hands in the dirt.  And…..

Our herbs are blooming!!

Just before we went out of town last weekend, I noticed a few spouts of basil.  We’ve got basil and cilantro and chives and ( not pictured here) MINT FOR THE MOJITOS!


Taken with Canon 6D and Canon 100mm 2.8 lens. 

Settings: Aperture f/3.5 Shutter Speed: 1/60 ISO:3200


I am so excited that I am actually growing something we can eat! I’m already plotting a tomato plant, a few salad greens, spinach and maybe, just maybe a few peppers.

Spring is springing!! This is leading to all sorts of ideas of what my patio and my front porch are going to look like. Hmmmmmm


Tip: When you take a photo, take it in both vertical and horizontal . You never know which orientation will tell your story better.


What’s Green in your life this week? Has spring sprung where you are?

    Everyone seems to be doing their gardens now. I’m still undecided about trying a garden here. We’ll only have this nice Spring weather for a couple weeks and then it’ll be full on Summer. San Antoni doesn’t get much of a winter. I think it is officially Spring here.

    Look how quick your herbs sprouted. I love it. I am so behind. We only started our Sunflower plant and I already forgot to water it. OMG. Your pictures are just the bomb. Tutor me! Come on. You know you want to. LOL

    Beautiful pictures.

    I cannot wait to move to Georgia. I want to plant an herb garden so badly and this is only increasing my desire. I had a small one when we lived in Pennsylvania and I loved being able to go outside and cut a few snips for use. Aaaaahhhh….

    I love that yall are growing things, I don’t have a green thumb whatsoever. I can’t wait to see the progress in a few months. Mint for a Mojito sounds divine. #ourproject52

    We have our little balcony garden going with some herbs, carrots and peppers. I want to add some tomatoes too because I make spaghetti and chili sauce from scratch, but I don’t want to overdo it.

    Very cool! I had fresh herbs on the balcony of my last house and I loved just the smell of them. I agree about vertical and horizontal pics. I have been making sure to capture both lately!

    Your plants are coming along great! I bought The Princess Fairy a herb plant this week and she loves taking care of it. Thanks for the tip, I’ll have to start doing that.

    I planted some herb seeds in the windows of my kitchen earlier this winter, but the seeds never sprouted. I think it was too cold in the windows this winter, but I’m going to try some more herb seeds next week. I would love to have some fresh basil, parsley, dill, cilantro, and mint.

    I am so happy to see you gave that tip. I usually take shots in both orientations. 🙂 I thought maybe that was overkill. I am so behind on starting plants.
