When Kim said she was going to start having a guest host on the last Tuesday of every month and asked us to submit a photo I have to admit my heart did a little flutter. How exciting would that be? I knew I had to give it a try. No risk, no reward.
But what to do . . . where does one even start . . . it began to feel a little daunting. There is a ton of talent ‘out there’.
I thought about the pretty, wispy, fine grass I had seen growing alongside our dock and how it had captured my attention and imagination. I now absolutely knew what I wanted to do. I rummaged up my garden shears and headed down to the lake.
I only needed a few stems since the very nature of the grass calls for simplicity. I arranged it in an old Watkins jar, added a couple of other old glass jars and a hard, round, smooth rock for contrast. I don’t remember where that rock came from . . . I must have picked it up on one of my long walks – and how happy I am that I have it!
I feel so honoured to be featured today and it’s a dream come true for me. Kim is so generous – she shares her textures, her knowledge and now, her blog space – simply amazing! Thank you, Kim!
Lastly, Kim taught us how to do the ‘mouseover’ in ‘Behind the Scenes – a creative guide to blogging your passion‘ by Kim Klassen and Xanthe Berkeley. I assure you, it’s a class you won’t want to miss.
