About the Image(s)

This photo is just for fun - but it shows what late April planting efforts are like here in northern Wisconsin. I had to move the ice so I could rake the fall leaves that were matted under it in preparation for the emergence of the spring flowers and herbs in my kitchen garden.

The photo was taken with my iPhone, f/1.8, 1/1372 sec. Then I cropped, straightened, and adjusted the exposure in Photoshop.

Turns out the best place to grow things in early spring here in Wisconsin seems to be in the dark corners of the kitchen cupboard, as shown in the thumbnail of the sprouted onion.

Happily Wisconsin is now blanketed with daffodils and even a few trees are budding and leafing out. Happy Spring wherever you are!

Great imagination! Looks like the Spring bug got you. The bright, sharp colors show hope for the coming garden...   Posted: 05/16/2022 10:38:15

The image tells a hopeful story of looking forward to spring. The bright colors and obviously receding snow tell it all.   Posted: 05/21/2022 10:40:07

Good story capture. This reminds me of growing up in Northern Michigan and having cabin fever really bad.   Posted: 05/22/2022 15:24:08
