Every man ought to be inquisitive through every hour of his great adventure down to the day when he shall no longer cast a shadow in the sun. For if he dies without a question in his heart, what excuse is there for his continuance?

How can it be Friday again already? And what was the FMTSO theme of the week again? Something to do with Valentine’s day, wasn’t it… Ah, hearts. Hearts?! The only hearts that keep popping to mind are the old Valentines cards I already published on my TWO other blogs this week. I can’t use those cards AGAIN – or can I? Oops, I just did! One of those playing-around things that only works on black blog background… (A Picasa collage also using black background.)
However, on this blog that’s cheating (I’m rather strict with myself) because those cards were scanned, not photographed. So I had to come up with something else. Grabbed my camera when I went out to slip slide myself over to the grocery shop… hoping for a miracle…
Sorry to disappoint you. No miracle turned up. I had to create it myself, using my own two feet.
Later, at home, going into my study to do this blog post, and thinking that I don’t seem to have a single heart-shaped object in my home… my eyes fell on my desk:
Actually … (What is this, honesty week?!) … I confess to a bit of styling for the photo, though. Putting the pile of paperwork out of sight, removing a bunch of boring receipts collected in this thing, and putting in some nice postcards that I just bought yesterday instead…
♥ Cordial Greetings to you all! ♥
Please visit Friday My Town Shoot Out for more hearts!

I’m afraid I have no idea what they intend to use the pipe for. To quote my blogging friend Sandra, a.k.a the Mad Snapper, this is a shot I took “just because I could”!

Scavenger Hunt: Wood, Metal, Stone.
I did not have to go far for this scavenger hunt, only to the nearby cemetery. Plenty of big old trees (wood). Metal fences and gates. Grave stones, and a stone wall.

… Show case your town up close and personal! …
Oh, this theme gave me quite a headache! I’ve got lots of macro and close-up photos… The problem is my lack of or inconsistent tagging! To have something to go by, I chose one photo per month from 2011.
January – hoar frost on fence
February – bookmark from the Textile Museum,
the sheep shears is our town’s ‘coat of arms’
March – window star made from horse shoe nails,
in my window. Still snowy outside.
April - Wood Anemones, wild spring flowers.
May - Lilacs
June – (sweet water) clam shells on the beach by the lake
July – Red Currants
August – Red Admiral butterfly (Vanessa atalanta)
(1) September – Mating Damselflies
(21) October – First frost
November – Rose hips
December (New Year’s Eve) – ex-rosehip!
