ROSES AND DEW AND POEMS TOO

Today, I woke up and saw how the sun was slanting in the horizon and lighting the few flowers that were in the garden.  Most of all, I beheld dew glittering under the sun.  Flowers and dew are two of my favorite photography subjects.  I escaped breakfast duties, I left that to the children - who volunteered, by the way! ;-) - and homeschooling (which is my husband's sworn duty before he leaves for school) to take some photos.

Here are some pictures from this morning's  excursion. 






My other favorites are poems.  I love writing poems and today, I discovered a social site, Britely,  where one can make little books of her work.  I uploaded some of my photos and favorite poem (Love Blooms) from my other page and this is the result: 

http://www.britely.com/ImeldaSMC/love-blooms  (Well, I was able to successfully embed the e-book at the bottom of this post after all) :-)


Please bear with me for my shameless plug.  :-) I do hope you like it though.  Since I am talking of Britely anyway, I think that it is a cool application.  I believe that one can make as long a story as she wants provided that there are as many uploaded pictures to accommodate the words.  You see, there is a limit to the number of words for each page/picture.  So, go try it.  It is fun.  And when you do, add me as your friend. :-) 

I am linking up with Katherine's Corner's Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop.  Since I revived this page, I have encountered many beautiful pages and hers is one of them.  

I also linking with Cottage Garden Party - button (3) by Fishtail Cottage and of The Rosegarden in Malevik .  What an excellent idea - a place for garden lovers.  

I am also linking as usual with Tina's Weekend Flowers and Friday Floral Photos, two of the best flower linkies I know. :-)
