Macro Monday

As Christmas week begins and the first of our two daughters arrives home tomorrow, I’ll be taking it a bit easier with blogging, although I’ll still be putting out a post every day.  Just can’t seem to shake that habit.  It will be family time for the next week or so and I’m looking forward to that, as I hope many of you are as well.  So today, I’m featuring a macro shot from a croton plant that badly needs repotting!  Spellcheck wants me to call it a crouton, but I won’t do it!  I think it sounds more like something from a sci-fi movie.

    Enjoy the holidays and your time with family, Janet. I like the macro of the croton plant, and I agree, I don’t think it would be good on a salad.

    • It will be fun, Dan, and I’m sure you’ll enjoy your time, too. The little “flowers” or whatever they are on this plant are so interesting to me. Glad you enjoy the shot.

    Spellcheck is wrong, it’s definitely NOT a crouton!! Beautiful capture Janet – have a wonderful holiday and enjoy the family.

    What a wonderful macro!! Isn’t spellcheck hilarious????

    • It can be one of the most amusing things around and these days, the internet isn’t always very amusing, so you have to take the G-rated humor where you can!


  9. I have a love/hate relationship with Spellchecker. 🙂

    My son and his Fiance our Dark Haired Beauty will be home late Weds. We’re looking forward to having everyone home too.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family Janet!

  10. It does look sci fi! (Do hope spellcheck doesn’t know something we don’t – like it’s a chrispy critter ready to crunch us or weigh us down…) it’s cool
    Have a great Merry Christmas time with your daughters. Mine just had a son. (A jingle elf?)
    So like you, time will be short for a bit, (but writing/blogging is a tad addictive…)
    Sending warm wishes and lots of appreciation for you photo gifts everytime you blog
