Back when we moved into our current house, there were no plantings on the south side of the house at all. It looked too bare to us, so we decided to plant some things, and picked junipers because we’d heard they were easy to manage. This is true, in the sense that they don’t need to be pruned or sprayed or even hardly weeded. We apparently got the wrong kind of juniper, and they’ve completely taking over that area, to the point where we have to whack them back every now and then so the vent from our pellet stove can breathe. I admire their enthusiasm, even when it’s a little much.
If you’re interested, you can join in on the photo challenge! Pick any image you created you can label with the letter J. Show us people jumping, babies jabbering, bracelets jangling, or whatever you’ve got! Here’s how to participate.
- Post an image on your own blog or website.* All types of images are welcome. If you have serious equipment and serious skills, that’s awesome! If you snap pics on your phone (like me), that’s also awesome!
- Post a comment on this page with a link back to your post. If you post a comment that includes a link to your blog, I will add a link to your post below.
- Check back over the next week to follow the links. That way you can see what other people did with the theme and join in the fun.
Olga Godim has a new custom book cover to go with this week’s letter. Check out her jaguar cover here.
*Just so we’re all clear, you post your photos on your own site, which means you aren’t giving control to me or to anyone else. We’re all invited to view the images you post (and comment if your site allows for comments), but nobody has the right to use your images in any way without your permission. Got it? Great!
