Protea Flowers and a Weekend Linky

Welcome to my weekend blog hop -
Make My Saturday Sweet #116!

My blog is best viewed in Google Chrome

Flowers are so fun to photograph. They don't wiggle or make faces. They don't close their eyes at the wrong moment. They let me take all the time I need and I can turn them this way and that way without hearing one complaint. These beauties are called Proteas and even though they did not grow in my garden, they are indigenous to South Africa.

In case someone took me too seriously, Amanda is a pleasure to photograph and she is usually the one who puts up with me and not the other way around. My teenagers don't always allow me to photograph them, but they do sometimes ask for my pics of them to share with their friends. When they appreciate my photos, I feel validated.

I invite you to share your creativity by linking your favorite post of the past week. Make sure you visit the person who linked up before you and leave a sweet comment!


Check out my latest book review:

This steampunk fiction / fantasy is perfect for girls ages 12 and up, including young-at-heart moms like myself. In Beggar Magic, you'll find magic, music, mystery and machines. Check out my review to learn more!
