I will continue to post a POW each Sunday and the winning POM thoughout 2012, culminating with everyone’s pick for Photo of the Year. I encourage everyone to comment on or rate each photo of the week to ultimately decide my “Best of the Best.”


13/52 Apple Blossom

I got reacquainted with my apple blossoms yesterday during an afternoon walk along the woodland skirting the edge of our front yard. A couple years ago, I had to fight for this tree’s survival because my lawnmower man threatened to “cut the d#&! thing down.” In a truce I agreed he could trim any limbs hanging in his way. But he has this love affair with his chain saw, pruner, weed whacker, etc., and tends to get carried away (see example below). So every spring spruce up, I have to remind him to leave ALL my trees (and bushes, and shrubs) alone, unless they have fallen or died, or I’ll break his d#&! big boy toys!

Photo of the Week series: Every Sunday in 2012 I will either share a photo from my archives or something new I just can’t wait to get feedback on for future art shows/exhibits.

Blogger participation: My hope is to receive enough input on each week’s photo to later post a Bloggers’ Choice of the Month and wrap up 2012 with a Bloggers’ Choice of the Year.

Am I right, or what?
