Eileen has a monthly mini photo challenge on her blog, with a different theme for each month. This month's theme was the letter "A". Participants had to take a minimum of 5 photos (no maximum) reflecting this theme during the month.
These are my takes for this month's theme:
|"A" - I thought the folded laundry drying rack looked like the letter A|
|A is for August, the current month|
A is also for Alphabets:
|Sinhala Hodiya (Alphabet)|
|A is for an Avocado seedling grown from a seed|
|And for a red Aloe plant to replace the one that disappeared|
|Anatomical drawings in a book that was a gift from my stepfather|
And finally - A is for:
|Pineapples? No! Annasi! (Sinhala word for pineapple)|
Thank you, Eileen; I had a lot of fun participating.
September's theme is "Green", if anyone would like to participate.
Love it, I need to go check out the challenge too! Enjoy the rest of the weekend :)ReplyDelete
Thank you, Martha. There are still a couple of days left in August, if you wish to join this month, or, maybe, you can join in September. :)Delete
Nice theme, you did so well! In Polish pineapple is very similar: Ananas:)ReplyDelete
Ananas is also the genus name for the pineapple - Ananas comosus. :)Delete
Wow, that's a great selection of A photos. I especially like the A frame drying rack and the pineapples - clever thinking on your part there!ReplyDelete
Thanks for joining in Bless xx
Thank you, Eileen. When you first mentioned the theme was "A", I thought it meant things that resembled the letter A! I was on the lookout for things that had an A-frame. Hence the laundry rack! But, then, you explained that it could be for anything starting with the letter A and that made it easier. :)Delete
Thank you for hosting this; I had fun. :)
That was fun!ReplyDelete
Glad you liked it. I had fun choosing the objects to photograph. :)Delete
Great idea! I like the first photo the best! 💖ReplyDelete
Thank you, Susan. :)Delete
Great challenge this month. Love all of your photos.ReplyDelete
My favorite is the drying rack that is shaped like an A - very clever.
Thank you. When I saw the theme, at first, I thought it meant things that looked like the letter A and I thought the drying rack formed a letter A when it was folded like that. I was wondering what else I could find that looked like the letter A, when Eileen explained it could be anything that started with the letter A and that made it easier!Delete
Drying rack is a clever one. :)ReplyDelete
I forgot about my avocado plants! Though I used one of my aloes.
Thank you. :)Delete
I'm off to check out your photos. :)
I really liked the drying rack and the others were very appropriate, clever to use non-English words.ReplyDelete
I found mouse #8 this morning after two days break. Maybe the long day of rain yesterday brought it in. Today is fine but with the wind it is not as warm as I would like. Had fun watching large Yellow-shafted Flickers robbing a blackberry cane! Behind them a chipmunk was at work on another cane. Then DH went out to see if there was anything left for him to pick!
Thank you, Bushlady. I suppose I could have put the scientific name for pineapple (Ananas comosus) instead, but, went with the Sinhala word, instead. :)Delete
At least you are finding those mice as they come in! Hopefully, there won't be many more to catch!
Oh, I hope your DH found some blackberries to pick and enjoy!
Love the aloe.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Regine. My gardener friend M gave it to me. :)Delete
Firstly, hello - I have come via Eileen's blog :o)ReplyDelete
Really like your finds, especially the airer and the alphabets - great ideas!
I am also envious of your avocado, as I found a seedling growing out of a stone in my compost bin, so I planted it, it grew for a while, then died. I guess it's too cold here!
Pleased to meet you, Lady Ella. :)Delete
Thank you; I enjoyed finding different things to photograph. :)
I'm sorry your avocado plant died. I've had other seedlings that grew and died, too, usually because our summers are so hot (the plants get scorched), although one time, because a winter got really cold and we had frost. However, avocado seedlings make good houseplants, so, maybe, you can grow a seedling, another time, and pot it up to keep indoors.
Thank you for visiting and commenting. Look forward to hearing from you, again.
That's a great tip! Next time I find one I will certainly keep it inside. Thank you!Delete
You are welcome. :)Delete
