Transitions, Change, And The Passing Of Time

For this week’s photo challenge, share a picture that symbolizes transitions, change, and the passing of time.

This morning when I went out to water my garden, I discovered the very first flower, on one of our watermelon plants. It’s a little special this year. I’ve grown watermelons successfully many times, but never in a container. Previous years I’ve leased acreage for gardening, and we’ve had more watermelons than we could eat ourselves.  My daughter really wanted watermelons this year as well, but we didn’t have a place to plant them in the ground. Growing them in containers is somewhat an experiment. The rest of my garden (tomatoes, squash, basil, oregano, cilantro, peach, fig, pomegranate, and cherry) is thriving in containers. We’ll see if we get any actual melons, but the flowers sure are beautiful.

The photo could be seen as a transition, and change in several ways; The change from gardening on acreage, to container gardening in a small space. The change in the growing watermelon plant, as the first flower appears. Of course in my head I have a bigger change, and transition in mind. Saving money by not leasing acreage for gardening, is taking me closer to my goal of having a homestead of my own, where I can grow the majority of our food myself. A place where I can firmly plant my trees in the ground, and build something that will last.

Looking forward to see the other entries in this week’s challenge! Have an awesome weekend!!

 

Love,

Ms Zen

It’s all about experiences, and the healing power of nature. Life is about choosing happiness. I entered the magic world of photography when I was five years old. My gypsy soul have taken me to many different countries, and definitely taught me to be more humble. I believe that you are what you eat, body and soul. I enjoy growing my own food, and spending time outdoors. Above everything else is my daughter. A Sagittarius loves to travel, have an open mind and, and a philosophical view. It motivates them to wander around the world in search of the meaning of life. Sagittarius is extrovert, optimistic and enthusiastic, and likes changes. A lot of that perfectly describes me. The fact that my ancestors, on both parents sides, were vikings, doesn’t exactly lessen my desire to explore. Maybe a slightly more mindful exploring, compared to the average viking. My blog, and my art prints is a results of my (inner and outer) explorations. Love, Maria

    1. Yes! Thank you so much Jane 🙂 After that first flower everything exploded into a sea of flowers. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I bet the temperatures in San Francisco are very comfortable right now? 🙂
