Macro Monday – squash

I  attach my favorite macro lens and head out to the garden.

Our squash plants are finally putting on a good show.

Do you see it?

I see plants that resemble underwater oddities.  You know deep ocean intricacies.

Oh and those wicked thorny hairs.

Is that squash or a sea urchin?

Beware of the white fury monster that lurks behind the leaves.

In a day or two my plate will be full with one-eyed squid.

Yum!

See you later, Bye!

      1. Hi! Yes and yes! But I am taking a long time to adjust (we crossed a lot of time zones on our trip around the world!) and just getting through emails has been overwhelming. We had the time of our lives and I am hoping to get back creating and posting soon. =) xoxo
