Week 7/52: Love


Love and Valentine’s Day for me are always hard to represent especially in a photo.  I am not really into hearts and romance at the moment. So I tried to compose a picture of some of the things that I love: photo of Mum because I miss her and the rest of the family; fiber and spindle to show my love of fiber arts; flowers indicating my gardening.  Not shown chocolate [oooh an idea for this theme next year just comes to mind], books, music, and Murphy:

I bought lots of ‘mums to cheer up the garden.  The garden now has lots of color.

The rain-barrel was newly installed with new gutters in August. I now have three rain-barrels.  However, until last week, we had hardly any rain to speak of, so they weren’t very functional.  After Thursday’s rain, this one in the front,  fell over and squashed the new gutter. Full rain-barrels are heavy.  Sigh.  The ground below the breeze-blocks obviously wasn’t as level as I had thought, despite what the spirit level said.
