GGW Picture This Contest for May

I'm not really one for contests but I saw Darla's (More Family and Flowers) picture and thought why not ? .. in between the "madness" of my garden frenzy I should stop and enjoy my pictures right ? .. so this is for GGW May contest which is "Lighting a Closer Look"
"“Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth and you will know the key to photography.” George Eastman"
When I saw the tip of the morning sun kiss this hellebore .. well I thought it was just beautiful .. but that is my opinion as the plant's mom ? haha

I'll second that! I so enjoy your images, Joy. I hope you're having a nice spring. We're finally getting spring. I've been away for a bit- my dad had a stroke, but he is well now- walking around with a scratchy throat like it never happened! My garden actually did quite well in my absence and I picked a garden fresh salad this morning :)

Hello Carolyn and thank you : )

Thank you Lona girl : ) and phew ! Yup I planted them straight away and have my fingers crossed .. hoping for the best !

Kate girl hello there : ) and thank you ! It is sunny but a little cool in the morning .. I chased or should I say yelled at two raccoons walking our fence yesterday morning .. they thumbed their noses at me .. jeez !

Hello Rebecca girl and thank you !
Hope you are enjoying your garden now with better weather : )

Tessa ! My goodness you have had a lot to deal with, I'm glad to hear your dad is doing well after such a profound event .. the stress is bad for all of you , so the garden will certainly soothe you and having it grant you a salad ? PERFECT ! : )
