Here is my entry for Terri’s, Sunday Stills Challenge.
Here is Terri’s opening sentence to her post this week “Now that the pandemic is hopefully behind us in the rear-view mirror and restrictions have lifted for the most part, do you feel like you have finally emerged from some alien cocoon?”
This picture kind of represents the emergence of Covid. It hit everyone with a bang.
My life has dramatically been changed during the pandemic. As most of your know, we had to escape from smoke and wildfires and the safety of our home and travel in a world full of covid. We came home with a minor case of covid and happened to get covid long haul a a result. This was before any of the vaccine’s came out. It’s been over a year and a half ago now, that we have been unable to clean our house, cook our own food, or go outdoors and for me that means, very little photography or trips to the flower gardens and fields. Our health just doesn’t allow for it. Yes, we are better than a year ago, but only by small increments.
We personally know 5 or 6 other people in our small circle of family, friends and co workers who have covid long haul. All of our lives will permanently be effected. I am not including those who lost their lives or family members or friends whose loved ones have died..
This photo of an emerging bearded iris last May. I did manage to get to Adelman’s Peony farm, but I had to sit and use a long lens for most of my photos.
This next photo of emerging tulips I took this past spring in my yard.
And this photo is the tulips that emerged to full bloom.
I’ve put together a list of challenges and their hosts. So if you know a challenge host, please direct them to my blog. Feel free to contact me anytime. I hope everyone will be able to use my lists
