Photos of the week: June 19

I am really enjoying the challenge of some of these prompts each week.  Often I try to plan ahead on what could work for each prompt but rarely is my plan what I actually take a photo of!  



– advertising-- I feel like I am a walking advertisement for Color Street nail wraps; I just love them!



– delicious-- I thought this asparagus/ strawberry salad was delicious




– animal-- We finally have hummingbirds back at our feeders!




– starts with V-- The petals on these new flowers I planted look like velvet. 




– your choice-- A sky full of fluffy white clouds.

  1. Oh it's so hard to capture a photo of a hummingbird! Great job. I love the petunia photo too. I think I have that exact same petunia and I just love it. The color is so vibrant in the garden.

    1. Thank you! I had to sit quite patiently for him to show up (repeatedly!) before I got a good photo.

    1. Thank you! I do my own nails quite frequently but was just thinking today that I should treat myself to a "real" manicure one day this summer.

  4. Gosh you live in a beautiful spot! I love all your lake photos. Your asparagus and strawberry salad looks tempting and healthy too. I would love to see a hummingbird; I think they are north american natives? Have a great week with the next prompts. CarolG

    1. Thank you! I am trying to eat healthier with more veggies and fruits but I do get sick of the same thing over and over again so I like to try new salad ingredients/combos.

  11. Wow! I'm super impressed by your hummingbird photo because I know how hard it is to get a good photo of them after being at my parents' last summer. And that salad looks DELICIOUS!!!

    1. Thank you! I had to sit very still like a statue with my camera at the ready and I used a rapid fire setting to take something like 60 photos in a second in order to get a few good ones.

    1. No, it's some sort of purple petunia I think.
