I tried and tried but I can't resist the obvious.
Since this is the month of LOVE the challenge has to be about LOVE!
What I DON'T want to see is portraits of your children or pets "because you love them".
But I would welcome creatively composed shots of your children which express a feeling of love say between siblings or a parent or grandparent for EXAMPLE.
I would like to see you plan your shots.
Think about the many different kinds of love or symbols of love.
This is a good opportunity to use colours or soft focus to help in your expression.
But I do want this to be a fun challenge as well so there is nothing to stop us from just playing with hearts. This also helps if we don't have willing models who will perform or indeed sit still for us!
I'm looking forward to seeing what you can come up with in the next couple of weeks.
I hope I won't be the only one to post this month!
LOL I tried toast too but mine was boring.
An interesting take on a bird's nest breakfast.
Sweet and sour is my favourite. Unexpected.
the lemon is quite striking.
Lastly... How do you FORCE a forsythia? Is it in a pot?
You force forsythia by selecting what you hope to be "good flower bloomers",cut them to desired length (mine are 3 foot) and smash about 3 inches of the base with a hammer until the bark comes off,place them in a vase of water,wait about 2 weeks & change water regularly...then enjoy!! Thanks for the nice comments!
That's so cool! I didn't know you could force as cut flowers. I have two good size bushes that I started from cuttings. I prune them and they get nice long stems. They have only just lost their last leaves because our winter was so mild. Can't wait to give this a try.
Oh! As for my "birds nest brunch" it started out as grilled cheese on rye when I got the idea! :)
Fantastic Becky. Love the toast with the little cut out apple heart and bread bit on the side. I am going to poke a heart shaped hole in my "birds nest" toast from now on. Too cool.
