For this week’s challenge, I‘d love to use all the colorful spring flowers growing hither and yon, BUT THERE AREN’T ANYWell hardly any.  This forced me to go on a color treasure hunt.  Spring will pop electric soon enough – I suppose.  Here’s a mix of some of last year’s flowers and a few other items out of the crayon box.

When I think “lines”, I think straight lines.  After debating a while, I decided I would go with “straight” because if I didn’t, I’d be too tempted to annoy you with more of my doodling.   So  here, for the most part, you will find my interpretation of “lines” for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week.

Many thanks to Cee @ ceephotography.com for hosting this posting.  You can see more entries to her challenge by clicking on the cute little critter below.

There are oh so many shades of green.  Ailsa, @ wheresmybackpack has asked that we display a shade or two.  Of course this time of year, you think green, you think St. Patrick’s Day.

Even the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ is in on showing their green.

Now I’m Italian, but what they say is everyone’s Irish on St. Patrick’s Day.  So, to all my “fellow Irishmen and women”, Happy St. Patrick’s day!

I don’t think this fella’s Irish either, but I could be wrong.

I have two very awesome and adorable children in my charge five days a week. Last Friday, along with my son, we drove over to Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ. We saw turtles and jellies, a giant, graceful hippo and a tiny poisonous frog. But the one critter we saw that fit Cee’s challenge was this beautiful red starfish. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an actual star smack dab in the middle of a starfish. Am I leading a sheltered, earthbound life, or is this unusual? Whether it’s unique or it’s an every day under the sea inhabitant, I think it’s a real looker. 🙂

For an adventure of your own, head on over to Cee’s blog and browse a little more of the red and/or white.
