Saturday PhotoHunt - Sad.


This week's PhotoHunters theme is SAD.

I've thought long and hard about it.
I've looked around everywhere.
I've searched my files.
I had no idea what to do.

Then this afternoon, in pleasant sunshine, I went out into the garden.
This is what I found.
A very SAD and neglected patch that was once a flower border!

For more, and undoubtedly better, sad entries please visit our host TNChick.

Happy Hunting!

Talk about the fellowship of Photo Hunters: You and JMB appear to be of like mind, even while living on two different continents! ;D

jmb said...

Just like me, as you say Dragonstar. I did not have a clue what to post. Lots of ideas, just no photos to fit. So I opened the back door, stood half inside, out of the rain and pointed and shot. It is sad to be at the end of the growing season. I hate to wish my life away but hurry Spring.
Have a good weekend.

Well, I don't know if better is the operative term.... ;-) I do like your take on the theme.

I almost didn't post to this theme, and my post is not typical "me". I hope you'll stop by, though:

Ah it sad but on a brighter note itwon't take long to get it back to its former glory. Happy weekend

Colin Campbell said...

Very difficult theme this week. Good job.

Aileni said...

Don't worry, darling - you'll fix it.
Other parts of the garden are far from Sad.

James Higham said...

Truly sad.

Wish I'd taken your route on this theme.

At least this is one sadness that is very fixable! It just needed some notice!

Lovely post!

JC said...

Love your sad patch... would have lots of company with my gardens over the years ;-)

It's kinda nice to have a difficult time finding sad, isn't it...

Carver said...

I think that's a great take on the theme.

Mrs Mecomber said...

Gosh, multiply that by 200 and you've got my vegetable garden. I am getting REALLY sad now!

I did Photo Hunters today, too. I hope you get a chance to visit and post your link.

Yeah, SAD is hard to come by, but you did well!

TorAa said...

Agree, and understand. We are leaving our Summerhome this weekend, that's sad, but also filled with great memories.

Liz said...

Oh dear, we've got a lot of those in our garden! Our summer didn't actually encourage or enable much gardening, did it?

CherryPie said...

I am sure it will perk up again in spring :-)

my flower garden looks the same, can't get to it because of the rain, how sad! nice post!
view mine if you wish here thanks..

The pansies in my front yard are looking pretty sad about right now.

Leslie said...

Now that's a good one. I got very sad yesterday when I looked at all the long grass in my yard.

None of it was in the lawn, it was all in the flower beds.

Sammawow said...

If I was in charge of our garden it would look even more sad than yours! I am good at cooking and taking care of my cats but very bad with gardens! My grandfather, mother and daughter all have the green thumb but not me!

crazy working mom said...

We had the same sad thing happen in our yard. Now it's gone. My sad photo is here. Great take on the theme!

Incog & Nito said...

Sad indeed, time for some gardening hey!! Happy weekend.

earthlingorgeous said...

will you be working with your green thumb to fix the sad view? Great subject for sad :)

CalumCarr said...

I recognise this patch. You've been to my garden!!

Carin said...

Like you I had to think long and hard about something to post. Indeed that patch does look a little sad.

Have a good week.

Hi Dragonstar,

Thanks for dropping my blog and leaving that wonderful comment. I will be posting about autism resources places to go to for proper diagnosis and education for parents or caregivers. So many are misinformed and I am making this one of my advocacy since educating myself about this is my power to help my daughter cope and go mainstream someday, hopefully.

Oh I see. Are gardens not supposed to look like that? :) Mine does, more frequently than I'd like.
