My Year In Pictures: March Week 2

A quick scroll through my photo files highlights an interesting color trend that peaks about this time every year.  Once our highly saturated strings of lights and holiday decorations are put away it takes me about six weeks to reach for strong colors again so January and February appear as soft months filled with ivory, blue and gray. By mid-March I’m ready to brighten things up again and true to form this week marks the return of brights.

Sunday afternoon this colorful gumball machine caught my attention and Monday morning Finn and I returned to the camellia tree to find these two blooms side by side in the grass.  Tuesday I added some new Dryer Ball colors to our Etsy store and by Wednesday evening I could see the drive home would be long and wet.  Thursday brought the first of two big windstorms and here someone’s party balloon was abandoned in the middle of the street.  Friday was a strange day and marked the first time I had to evacuate two separate buildings because of (false) fire alarms.  In the rain.  Saturday started out with clear blue skies but a second storm was on the way and Ryan and I found this lonely seagull down by the beach watching the wind blow.

Coming soon I’ve got a great set of new photos almost ready to share here from our latest March adventures and if you’d like to follow along in real-time don’t forget I post my daily photos on InstagramTwitter and Facebook. If a once-a-week blog read is more your speed my weekly recaps will continue here along with caption notes containing editing information for each photo.

My Year In Pictures: March Week 1

Wow, we’re only a few days into March and already I feel like it’s living up to its reputation of coming in like a lion and (hopefully) going out like a lamb.  I’ve had enough of the lion and am sitting here impatiently waiting for some lamb time.

The last Sunday of February was pretty quiet and I thought I’d capture this peaceful scene of this salt water marsh across the parking lot from our gym before the winter browns turn to green.  I had great plans to find something fun to photograph for leap day on February 29th but the day was crazy busy and by the end I was just happy I’d snapped this shot so I could find my car in the parking garage…  Tuesday morning Finn and I discovered why we’d heard so many chain saws when we found this newly installed but unused power pole by our front yard cut into pieces.  What a waste of a nice tree.  Wednesday I stopped to snap this pretty pink camellia and did you know Thursday March 3rd was National Anthem day?  I didn’t, but now I have this flag photo to remind me next year.  Friday’s shot is the big bowl of oranges on our kitchen counter and Saturday is a behind-the-scenes peek at my days work winding a big basket full of these 100% wool dryer balls.  This photo was snapped part way through the process so if you’d like to see the finished product the new listing is ready for viewing in our Etsy shop!
