Week 3 - Dirty

Week 3 of 52 Weeks Photo Themes 

And I was fully anticipating taking photos of my kids amongst a giant mess of one sort or another. Imagine my surprise when this week's subject was my hubby DR instead. The weather was unusually warm this past weekend, upper 50's and low 60's, which DR took advantage of and worked up the dead organic matter and compost into our garden plot.

I haven't a clue why but this picture should be rotated 90 degrees to the left. I tried ever trick I know to get it turned but I couldn't get it to work.

I'm really happy with these photos. It was a beautiful day although tricky with the bright sunshine and the freshly turned soil smelled fabulous. It's one of my favorite smells in the world by the way.

Next week, Line(s).
Hmm, I'll have to do some thinking and looking on that one.


  1. Cool! I like that first one. Maybe I need to change my challenge to this "Project 52 - pictures taken OUTSIDE the home" :)

  2. Wow! Working ground in January???? I guess while we were gone Steve's dad "ripped" some ground that we didn't get to right after harvest because it was so wet. Crazy weather! I think we flew over you on the way home. I have some cool pics of farms with irrigation and contour images. Looks like crop circles and alien messages. I'm working them into a future post!

  3. Cool pictures. Working ground in January?? That should go in the history books. ;0)

  4. Lana, crop circles..yep that was probably near here! And it was unseasonably warm the day DR was in the garden..60! But the weather is much colder now, 30's..and windy!


I'd love to hear what you have to say! I try to reply to every one of them.
