March Photo Scavenger Hunt

March was an unsettled month, not the greatest for picture taking, however I have tried to add a splash of brightness here and there.  Here are my finds for the month ~



1 - M is for mountain

I had hoped for a closeup of our snow capped mountain with a blue sky background, but for much of the month, the mountain was hidden behind cloud.  Instead I spotted this mountain scene with a sea of evergreen in the foreground.



2 - 9 a.m.

I thought these birds looked to be pointing at the appropriate position to indicate 9 o'clock. 






3 -  Berries


4 - Lit up

Here's a cheerful robin with its twinkling eye lit up for Spring!


5 - Grate

An old grate that my mother bought for us years ago when we had a wood burning fireplace.  Now that we have a gas fireplace, I keep odd collections of rocks and wood in it.


6 - Working

Someone is cutting branches!  It looks like he's spotted me and my camera...




7 - Brickwork

My brickwork search led me from my fireplace wall to various designs spotted on my travels ~ I've mortared a few photos together ~


 8 - Cutlery

A friend created an old silver cutlery windchime for me, so I hung it off the clothesline for a photo ~


9 - Flowers

Near my front door, I have placed a Spring Basket ~


and just to prove that all of Canada isn't covered in snow, here's a photo I took when on a recent trip to Victoria ~ not only spring flowers, but palm trees...  that's the west coast for you :)


1- Crisp

Yay, an excuse to crisp up some bacon ~ a tasty lunch of a bacon, lettuce and tomato cheese bun sandwich...



11 - ticket

A lottery ticket, a ticket to a premiere, and a parking receipt so I don't get a ticket ;)


12 - Coloured door


Thanks again to greenthumb for hosting these monthly Scavenger hunts ~

    1. Thanks, Elaine ~ one thing that's good when the trees aren't in leaf... birds are more visible, and little dangly things are set off :)

  7. Your 9 am interpretation is fabulous, what a great idea. The crisp bacon is very tempting, too.

  8. Another fine collection, Glo. I don't know why they struck me this way, but after seeing the way you incorporated the curve into the Waxwing image, I started seeing curves in many/most of the others. My eye just went there automatically... mostly the robin's breast, the brickwork, the trees, the logo on the ticket and the bus wheel.

  10. A very creative selection here Glo, those mountains are amazing, they don't look real they are that beautiful. I also loved the robin and that lovely little spring basket.
    One complaint though...I see no butter on your bun, you HAVE to have butter if it is to be perfection! Yes!!!xxx

    1. Thanks Snowbird ~ Glad you enjoyed my photos. :) Good spotting on the missing butter! I figured with bacon and cheese, that was enough fat in the sandwich, but of course it would have tasted even better with butter!

  13. Wonderful interpretations, Glo! How timely of the birds to point in the right direction for your collage. And that grate -- what a beauty. The ones around here are very utilitarian and not particularly decorative. Spring baskets of colorful primroses are certainly cheery.

    1. Thanks, Nikki! Yes, the birds were very obliging, weren't they? ;) I think it is a very old grate with nice lines and appealed to my mother (and me). It looked good with logs and a blazing fire in our old house. I am delighted to finally see some colourful spring flowers here ~ still nowhere as plentiful as your delightful roses, but a start!

  14. Your photos are great, Glo! What a clever shot for 9 am! I always love how you do the "summary collage" at the top. I must be going through flower withdrawal since I got back from my trip and into the snow again. My heart immediately soars when I see everyone's flower photo. Your spring basket is vibrant and beautiful. Have a lovely weekend!
