This is my 15th weekly challenge out of 52.

So I was at the farm this morning, looking for something to photograph for my weekly challenge, and the sun was just coming up over the orchard, and all the long grass was like a magic carpet in the light. So I got down on my butt in the long, wet grass and took a bunch of shots, and every single one was completely different, I could not believe the variety of shots available in one little patch of overgrown, dewdrop-laden lawn. Wow. Was lots of fun. : )

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.
