Scavenger Hunt Sunday ~ June 30, 2013

 
Well, here we are...the last day of June and moving into the hottest months of the year.  I'm already hot and miserable and I'm certainly not looking forward to the next two months. I make myself get outside early every morning, work in the yard a little, or take some pictures. Mr. H says I need to stay accustomed to the heat and it will be better, but, so far, that's not working for me! I do my time and hurry into the air-conditioning! 
 
I did stay outside this week long enough to scavenge around for this week prompts! Which are:
tools
motion
sweet
dots
strips
 
 
tools
Garden tools...I'm not using them very much, but I have them if I need them!
 
 
motion
I made a little motion with my hostas by twisting the camera as I snapped the shutter button.
 
 
sweet
Aren't these sweet little mushrooms? They're very tiny, maybe  1/2" tall.
 
 
dots
This guy has lots of orange dots on his head and neck.


stripes
What can I say? It's a striped feather.
 
That's it for this week!
I hope you enjoy your summer days!
Me, I'm staying inside as much as possible!

  8. Your garden tools are so clean :) Love the orange mushrooms and the precious turtle. My husband shut the air conditioning off today, not sure what he was thinking. I see another sleepless night ahead. I need cool/cold to sleep well.

  9. every single one of your photos is stunning! that's a cute gardening bag! those mushrooms are an amazing color. were they in your backyard? we're looking at planting hostas in our front planter. gotta see how much sun {more likely shade} they can tolerate. Have an amazing 4th.

  11. HHH? That's tough. You and I need to switch houses. I'll take your heat, you can take my long winters. Not so sure what Mr H would say about that though. : )
    I love that first tools shot-woo-wee on the bokeh. And I think those mushrooms are chanterells. My mom picks them here in Maine and eats them. I wouldn't dare incase they were the wrong kind.
    Happy day my friend.

  15. Wonderful set. I hear you on the heat. I rarely get out in the heat to work in my garden too. Fun motion shot. I must try that sometime.
    Those Mushrooms are so tiny and sweetly adorable.
    Cute Turtle and that Striped feather is perfect for the prompt.

  17. I love your gardening tools all lined up looking so clean! I too dislike the heat, especially when it's high humidity. Unlike you, I have no air-conditioning to run back into!
    Those tiny mushrooms are really sweet and such a lovely colour too!
