Scavenger Hunt Sunday

1. My Passion

...is my Grandchildren

Lily - age 3 1/2
Lucy, age 2
Sammy, age 7 months

2. Sound of Music


We heard the sound of music in our home quite often when our son and daughter were young. Our daughter played the violin and our son played the violin, the guitar, and the drums.He was part of a garage band in his high school years which practiced at our house - oh, the SOUND of MUSIC! This is his guitar with his pick left right where it left it. I took it outside in the natural sunlight and really like how the pick caught the sun and reflected on the headstock of the guitar.


3. Inner Beauty

The inner stamens of a lily.


4. Ethereal

I wasn't sure about this one but the more I looked at it the more I was really happy with it. This is a plume of my Smoke Bush. The little pin point yellow flowers have almost all fallen off leaving the smokey plume. The background just seemed to come together and give this image its fairytale colors.

5. Sharp

"You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses."

I took my guitar outside aswell to get a better shot in the light too and I was nearly going to post a picture of rose thorns aswell LOL. I think that smokebush flowers are so beautiful - I can remember trying to take shots of them last year. I must keep an eye out for mine flowering again this year and try and create a shot like yours.
