Green Thumb Sunday

Join Green Thumb Sunday
Join


I have been invited to join Green Thumb Sunday, which should be fun. Similar to other specific postings for a particular day of the week, this one calls for participants to post a photo from nature, eg. their garden, an animal/insect, clouds, trees, water or almost anything found in the natural world.

I thought I would post this photo for my initial GTS because, although the fence, posts and paint may be a little removed from the natural world, it does form one of the boundaries of my garden and it took so jolly long to get the photo without the subject either hiding or pulling faces, that I felt it deserved this honour.

Excellent choice Alice. Sitting in any garden regardless of what your doing is an experience into the natural world. He looks so peaceful. It has a Tom Sawyer air about it. (T. Sawyer was an American Classic Novel we had to read as school aged kids.)

Welcome to Green Thumb Sunday! Looks like you're going to have a great looking fence when he's done. I can't wait to see more of your garden and perhaps some views of your country from your perspective.

I have trouble taking a nice photo of my husband too. He always puts on this big fake grin. Since I have a digital camera I'll usually humor him and take the photo and then snap another when he thinks I'm done. LOL

If you know of anyone else that might want to join Green Thumb Sunday just tell them about it. The more the merrier. :) Anyone who enjoys taking photos of landscapes, nature - wildlife, gardens or anything that fits into that general theme, and who is willing to put up a photo most Sundays can join.

Have a great day!

Mandy said...

I bet it's because he doesn't want people to see him in that hat hehe. Or maybe because he was grumpy about having to paint the fence? (lol only joking)

I'm new to Green Thumb Sunday too, and my photo is up!

Happy Sunday

This is a really cool shot! Love the bit of shade the painter has yet so much unfinished fence! Great share.

Welcome to the group. I hope you have a great day and a wonderful week too!

Motherkitty said...

Good shot of your hubby's back. What kind of tree is that next to his left hand?

John - Melbourne said...

I hope I never have to paint another picket fence in my life! Not fun. Welcome to green thumb sunday.

Kerri said...

Richard always has a project, doesn't he? Ross wants to know why your hand doesn't fit around the paint brush. He says painting is women's work (ha!). I told him someone has to work the camera :)
I really like this shot.
Green thumb Sunday sounds like fun.

Deb said...

Welcome to Green Thumb Sunday :))
Nice fence! Even nicer that you have your own fence painter ;~)

Mrs Lifecruiser said...

Ahh! I see you got it working with the code and all, lovely!

Warmth welcome and what a great start, to introduce your garden fence. Then you can continue with everything in it later. *lol*

And of course I have to love that fact that you've got a nice painter there too ;-)

All part of the gardening world. Care and maintenance of the garden domain.
I guess your season of the summer is just around the corner.
I hope you enjoy our Green Thumb Sunday group!

Christine said...

Welcome to Green Thumb Sunday.
Lovely white picket fence. I also noticed the white blossoms of your cherry tree. Simply gorgeous.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your sunday!

Tricia said...

We have a late addition to the Green Thumb Sunday group - Janets Garden. I thought I'd let you know so that you could visit her and give her a welcome to the group if you have time.

I love all your pictures! Your landscape is beautiful. I will go take a look at Greenthumb Sunday. Sounds interesting. Sat and Sun are usually my greenthumb days too.
Thanks so much for the pictures and the wonderful landscaping ideas!

Kathleen Marie said...

That is a cute photo, white washing the fence! Kind of a Huckleberry/Tom Sawyer type of photo. I loved all your other photos as well. You sure have a 'green thumb'!

IMS said...

Beautiful photos! thanks for sharing these!

Janet said...

Alice, I actually featured you on my blog a while ago...

Check it out.

HORIZON said...

I really like this photo Alice- from a different perspective- nice. Thank you for visiting my blog on my birthday and your lovely message :)

Alice said...

Shona - Good Luck with the renovations.
Wendy & Kathleen - Yes, we're quite familiar with Tom Sawyer over here, at least people of my vintage are. I suggested to hubby that he was playing Tom Sawyer, but he said that if he really was then he wouldn't be painting the fence at all - I would be doing it and paying him for the privilege.
Kerri - tell that funnyman Ross that my hand does, and has, fitted perfectly around a paint brush handle, but I just didn't want to show hubby up ...lol.

Thank you all for your warm welcome to Green Thumb Sunday. I will be spreading the word.

PEA said...

It's funny how some shots just capture the whole atmosphere..and this one certainly does! I love it!!I hadn't heard of Green Thumb Sunday so will have to look into it:-) Hugs!

What a shabby chic fence you have in your garden. I’m all into painting things white at the moment. Marion
