Week in Review: Food Photography, Farmers Markets, and a Crazy Bunny Lady

Crazy Bunny Lady

This picture makes me think of two things.  One is the bird lady from Mary Poppins.  The other is how many rabbits currently frolic through our yard.  It’s like they sense that we are working on completing our fence and they want to get in as much time as possible before they are shut out.  If only we could teach them not to eat my vegetables and flowers, cause sometimes they can be just so darn cute!

Summer is in full swing and so is the beautiful bounty of the farmers markets.  Make sure to check out these recipes involving fresh fruit and vegetables from other wonderful bloggers.

As I mentioned last week, I have decided that July is Corgi Month.  So here’s a little dose of adorable cuteness for your week.

And for those of you readers that are food bloggers, I wanted to share a great post from My French Heaven on how to better your food photography.  And as you can see by this image below, Stéphane knows what he’s talking about!

    Both are great pictures. Where we are going to build there are a lot of bunnies and they love flower buds but I’d rather deal with that then the black bears I saw the other day in our neighborhood at my girlfriends!

      Thanks Cynthia. And oh my….bunnies are so much better than black bears. My folks had them at their old place and they can be quite the handful.

  2. Ohhh the corgis! Such precious little pups. Thank you for the ceviche shoutout! I’m really enjoying the photography tips article too, since that’s something I’ve been trying to work on.

    Thanks for giving my avocado + kale salad a shout out! I’m so honored to be featured alongside such adorable corgis. I’ve wanted a corgi puppy forever (looks like other people in the comments feel the same 🙂 ) That photo just made my day!

      Yeah — I think corgis are so incredibly cute too. Puppies all around! 😉

    Thanks for the mention in your blog! And what cute dogs!! We also have a lot of rabbits and deer in our yard. Always a challenge to find plants they do not want to eat to the ground.

      It was my pleasure Bernice!
      Yes — finding plants that don’t become a tasty buffet to the animals is always a challenge!

    We saw 2 bunnies in our yard this morning happily munching on clover. They’re getting so tame we can get within 5 feet or so and they ignore us. Jo @ Let’s Face the Music

      I know exactly what you mean, Jo! Ours seem to not even get phased when we are out in the yard at the same time.
