Monday Discovery: “Mellow Yellow Monday”

I visited Misk Cooks this morning where Misky shares recipes and some of the most beautiful photographs of food you’ll see anywhere. Today there’s a gorgeous photo of rape fields in Sussex and a link to Mellow Yellow Monday, where you’ll find lots of other photos, weekly prompts, and the rules for participating.

So if your Monday is blue, you might give MYM a try.

Here’s my “yellow” offering for today’s Monday Discovery.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Close

This week’s Photo Challenge is “close,” which can be interpreted many ways, I suppose. Here’s one, but don’t make me swear to what this critter really is. The specks aren’t “noise” in the photo, by the way. Dirty window. The author hangs her head in shame. It’s bad housekeeping, pure and simple, but what’s more important–writing, reading, taking photos, family, cooking (see how far down on the list cooking is?), hanging out with Oliver the cat–or dust on the glass?
