The Changing Seasons: February 2018

I am glad for this opportunity to revisit February as the month has whizzed by!  My 30-Day Challenge was to encounter Beauty, whether it is as an Imaginative Creator or Awed Enthusiast.  I feel like I didn’t mindfully do this as there was so much going on.  So I am going to try again in March, to purposefully engage in Beauty, whether it is composing a photograph, or dreaming up new Blondie flavours, or jiggling to music, or being gobsmacked by a sculpture: Encounter with Beauty, Take 2.

On to the Highlights of February: we harvested our first tomato (Above photo)  from our Balcony Garden: we were all thrilled to enjoy the fruits of Loving Husband & Older Daughter’s labours.  There were a total of 5.  We are awaiting 2 more which have since emerged.

It has also been a season of lights, as we enjoyed the Light to Night Festival in the Civic District, and the Lunar New Year.

Here are some of my Beauty-ful creations.

If you are inspired to join in, here are the guidelines for The Changing Seasons.

The Changing Seasons Version One (photographic):

  • Each month, post 5-20 photos in a gallery that you feel represent your month
  • Don’t use photos from your archive. Only new shots.

The Changing Seasons Version Two (you choose the format):

  • Each month, post a photo, recipe, painting, drawing, video, whatever that you feel says something about your month
  • Don’t use archive stuff. Only new material!
  • Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons so others can find them.
  • Ping back to The Changing Seasons, February 2018 so that we can find each other

  1. Wow! I am so loving your earrings, and your shot of that single, perfect tomato speaks to me of much that is good in the world. I can’t help but agree with Joanne — a very colourful month. Thanks for sharing this with us. 🙂

  2. What a beautiful round-up of your month, Ju-Lyn! The shot of your tomato totally reminds me of the cover design of Twilight by Stephanie Meyer, though there it was an apple. 😉 Growing tomatoes is so lovely, I did it once myself – the taste was wonderful! But a lot of work too! And the earrings are spectacular! You should start your own Etsy shop! 😀

    1. OMG! You got the reference to Twilight, Sarah! That’s exactly what I was thinking as well when I applied the filters! Yay!!!!!

      We really didn’t expect the tomatoes to fruit, so were delighted when we did!!!!

      Thanks so much for affirming the earrings – there are fun to do! I don’t think I could Easy though, I don’t have enough discipline to make a steady supply!!! 🙂

      1. Hehe! So glad I got the reference to Twilight right! 😉 I thought the covers were really lovely and mainly bought the books because of it! LOL! 😀
        I completely get that it would be quite a commitment to sell the earrings on Etsy. Better to just enjoy yourself by being creative! 🙂
        Have a great weekend, Ju-Lyn!

  3. Such a vibrant month for you PP. I hope you get many more tomatoes. I grew them last year and loved eating them picked straight from the plant, they were so sweet and warm from the sun. Wishing you a productive March 🙂
