Photo Challenge Day 6: Eency Weency


Sometimes You Have To Look Close

The tiniest of things can be easily missed or forgotten, compared to the bigger and the bold.  That doesn't mean they don't have as much to say.

Lady bug, lady bug fly away.........or maybe not. At first I thought Lynn had captured a lady bug, but I don't see any dots. However, this little bug does match the strawberries perfectly.

Shoes for the littlest toes. Kristen's look ginormous next to them.  Meanwhile, they're probably a size 5.

And the feet that go in 'em. Lettin' the dogs air out. Everybody has to do it. Even the wee ones.


One thing I love about Queen Anne's Lace is that each flower is made up of teeny tiny Queen Anne's Lace. Emma captured that beautiful white fractal effect.

Oh I can't wait for ours to pop. They're coming, but we were late planting.  Kathy was obviously ahead of us. I can nearly taste them.  By the way Kathy, I do agree. I really do. Grape tomatoes are in fact, eency weency.

Oh to find a secret garden. Well, Cari-Jane did.  In a place she'd lived for years. Isn't that the best kind of secret garden?


It might be a little amulet, but no less powerful. My girl Mary. My Mom gave me this miniscule Blessed Mother, that came in the case behind her. She couldn't remember whether her godmother or my grandmother gave it to her. Regardless, she oversees me at my desk now.

Tiny white bells and a note of Spring in the air.  Karen's lily of the valley take over her yard in Spring.  Not a bad thing to smell their sweetness and see their pretty ruffles.

More sweet blooms from Karen's yard. I don't have any 'bluets' in my yard, but I may have to get some. So lovely.

Now these I'd really love to have in my yard. Thankfully the next door neighbor's allow us to share their strawberries.

Can you find it? Look close for Ashely's leggy friend who has been mighty busy indeed.

A tiny bloom from my garden sitting on the time pebble that Cari-Jane sent me.

Flowers to adorn yourself with, from the talented Reshma. The smallest lotus flowers I've ever seen.

Flowers, flowers everywhere. Apparently, there are lots of eency weency ones, including these three I picked from my garden.....phlox in the back, black eye susan, and wild aster.

Again, thanks for playing along. Getting you submissions is like opening up a wonderful little surprise. Next up in the photo challenge, glorious food. If you want to particpate in this challenge, just get me your submission by end of the day tomorrow, for Friday's post.

Want a great big surprise of your own? How does winning a ton of beautifully handcrafted items sound? Good? Then I guess you better enter the August giveaway.

Guess what tomorrow is.....time for another Gotta Have It/Gotta Blog It link up party. Time for shops and bloggers to show us their wares and for the rest of us to mingle about and discover new things. Oh yeah. I know how you guys like to party.

Enjoy the day, it's the only one we've got.

Ciao,
