A Refreshing Day!

"A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people. " ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

"A new word is like a fresh seed sown on the ground of the discussion." ~ Ludwig Wittgenstein

"A Poem does not grow by jerks. As trees in Spring produce a new ring of tissue, so does every poet put forth a fresh outlay of stuff at the same season." ~ Wilfred Owen
Moody Monday offers us a challenge each week.. the photo challenge of today is Fresh....

Fresh~ • newly made or obtained • new; not previously known, met with, etc.; novel • pure, cool, or refreshing • not faded, worn, obliterated, etc.

~ Fresh vegetables..

Fresh Fruits~

~ Farm fresh eggs.. from our own hens..
fresh flowers priced to buy~
~ The freshest flowers growing right outside my door.. My favorite flower.. bought for me By My Beloved Dave..
a new life.. pure and unspoiled.. Fresh and sweet!

~ I have got to tell you that I really enjoyed doing the research for today's post.. It is amazing how quickly a produce manager can get a fresh mouth when he sees someone with a camera in his department.. Never fear.. he didn't say anything to me personally but he appeared to have a fresh burst of energy as he hurried to get the store manager and then as I admired their fresh flowers.. the floral manager as well.. they followed me around the store as I shopped for animal feed and fresh food for my family.. Just as I was about to leave the store.. I saw them all huddled at the end of an aisle.. all eyes trained on me.. I think I scared them.. finally the store manager asked me if it was true that I had a camera in their store.. I thought about telling them I was a mystery shopper or something like that but before I could come up with a fresh lie.. the manager made up his mind that I was a spy.. he told the others to head on back to their work.. that if I was making pictures of their stuff then it was because they were the best store in town.. Poor Dave was standing away from me as if we were not together or I would have pulled my camera back out of my purse and made a fresh batch of pictures and maybe even some of them standing there in their silly little huddle.. Needless to say I left there feeling refreshed.. Have a wonderful day!!

Too many people know you for you to be a spy. That is a good one though......


Sunshine said...

You certainly know how to entertain me! Thanks for the laughs! I will be a spy with you anytime, sound like fun!!

Lin said...

Oh, that is so funny! You had them running scared!! I'm surprised nobody had the nerve to ask why you were taking photos.

Camella Black said...

Love, I get some strange looks too when I pull out my camera! Great post.

Big time~ you are most likely right.. they probably
took one look and said "oh.. that's just Patsy.. she is crazy"..

Sunshine~ Dave says I'm gonna get us killed.. he hates when I decide I want a picture of a house or even a person walking away..

Lin~ they were wondering.. I left them wondering..

Camella~ you and I have spied together before.. even taking on the hateful woman from the army who told us we better not find any tunnels.. as if generations of teen.. myself included had dreamed them..

Thanks to all who have visited me today! Have a great day!
