Sofia is our guest host for the Friendly Friday Challenge and she’s posted a tough topic for me: In the Garden.
I am not a gifted gardener or grower of things. Is there an opposite to a green-thumb? That’d be what I have. Unfortunately (for this challenge) my disinterest in gardening extends to photography. Despite crawling through my archives, I could not find a single picture of flowers in a garden.
I did find this one photo taken in the Singapore Botanic Gardens … which just about expresses how I felt about being there. The gardens were beautiful but it was a very hot and humid day. I was also feeling frustrated as I taking an outdoor photography lesson with someone who had a very oblique style of instruction.
I remember crawling around in the dirt, trying to take an interesting perspective according to his guidance. His guidance being “Take a picture.” “No, not that one.” “Nope, that’s not it either.” “Ahmm. No.”
So without pictures of gardens or stories about gardening … what do I share for the challenge?
Here’s a song about a garden. It’s by July Talk, a Canadian group known for their high energy and really good sound. When I need an injection of rock, this is one of my favorite bands.
Do you have a more relevant or irreverant take on GARDENS? Why don’t you pop over to Sofia’s page & post your Friendly Friday response. I’ll be looking out for it too 🙂
