30 in 30 – #2


Winter Garden

In summer, these small metal cups are supposed to catch rain water, then tip to spill it out once they are full. They never do tip, but they jingle together in the wind. I like them best in winter for their sculptural quality. They are my winter  garden “flowers”.

We now have five people taking part in our 30 in 30 challenge. It began as 30 paintings in 30 days, but since I rarely paint, I decided to do 30 photos. No reason to stop there though. 30 haiku in 30 days, or 30 poems, or…that’s the wonderful thing about creativity: there are no limits. Won’t you join us? Add your link in the comments. Don’t worry that we’ve already started – it’s never to late to start.

      Clever idea! Wish I’d thought of it. I might try it on my own and see what I come up with after 30 days. Looking forward to seeing your verses.
