Circle Challenge

I was reading Sue Spargo's blog and she challenged herself to find circles and take photos. So, I got the idea to go outside and find circles. I found that I have a very boring yard, lol. There were circles if you want to count old tomato holders, plastic pipes in the back and old tires;) I did find a few circles that were worth showing and it is a good exercise in form and texture. I need a macro lens on this camera and I can't find the cord to my other, so not the best close ups.

This is my favorite, it is a circle and a study in form, would make a very intricate pattern. We have tons of these growing in our yard, I have no idea what they are.

I think everyone has these growing in the yard. They are weeds, but I like them and they are fun to blow in the air.

This is sort of a circle. The birds have built multiple nests in this tree, this is the biggest and most well built. They must have had a party when the babies flew out of the nest;) It shows you, that birds will put anything in their nests.

Beautiful photos! It's too hot here to go outside for much of anything! I love the idea that the birdsnest is a circle... too kewl!

yes i hear you should put out your fabric cut offs , you know those slivers when you first line up the fabric the birds love those for making nests and makes the next colorful :)

I was told not to put fabrics or wools with dyes since they were toxic. But, I think plastic strings would have more toxins, so cloth would be a good idea.

The 1st flower is Queen Anne's Lace (Daucus carota)... we have a ton of it here. Butterflies like to lay their eggs in the blossoms!It would make a great pattern! Have a nice weekend - Deb
