A - Z Challenge : F

F is for Fun.


It's been a little glum around here.  All work and no play...you know what that leads to. 


So a day outdoors with friends is just what the doctor would have ordered.


Let's pretend that we're floating away to - does it matter where?


We can take some time to smell the flowers...


And let last year's grasses filter the view of this tiny part of the ocean.


I discover the fronds of new growth as the yarrow pushes its way past old stems.


At the end of the day, I felt exactly as this white-crowned sparrow...let's just open our beaks and SING!

I'm always up for a bit of fun! And a journey to who knows where!
Love the yarrow peeping up, I'm wondering if it's the same plant that yarrow essential oil comes from, probably is, I'll have to google it.
Certainly had fun reading your post!

Stephanie, it is the same plant!
The oil from its leaves is anti-inflammatory and great for people with pollen allergies! Wow!

Your blog has reminded me that I used to hook rugs and it was fun. The same for crocheting. Maybe it's time to haul out some of my old hobbies and give them another run.
