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!

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?

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.

I love this! I want to start planting my own herbs someday! I love the dreamy bokeh!

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.

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.
