Photo Challenge: Weightless Dirt

Needle ice and

I wonder if the dirt feels like it’s flying.

Turns out this familiar crunchy stuff is called needle ice, and a description of how it occurs can be found here.

Funny how things always have a name. I see this stuff occasionally and think, “Hey, there’s some of that crunchy dirt,” but never considered what it might be called. Nice to finally meet you, needle ice.

In response to this week’s photo challenge, weight(less). See also my first entry, Weightless Heart.

D is for Dirt

Almost as colorful as the flowers themselves, the many different types of dirt available for purchase line the wall of the hardware store’s garden center.

OK, I may have been feeling a little sarcastic when I took this photo, but it’s only because I was disappointed that there weren’t many flowers to look at during my recent trip to the store.

I saw a few pansies and some pink flowers that brightened my day. Just got to hang in there a little longer and wait for spring to arrive.

I’m participating in the A to Z Challenge for the month of April. The idea is to post every day, except Sundays, and end up with one post for each letter of the alphabet. It’s a good challenge to help me to blog every day.
