  7. I confess I'm guilty. I killed a lemon earlier today. And it wasn't the first.

    This picture really set my wheels in motion. Thanks, Tess.

  11. This photo was great it reminded me of a story my husband used to tell about his restaurant days in college. He worked in many a seafood place during those years and where there is seafood there is blood and lemons!

  32. the red ink(?) freaks me out a bit, at first, I wanted to write some odd tale of murder but I find I ended up not leaning toward that direction

    thanks for inspiration.

    ReplyDelete

  41. I thought that when the world gives you lemons you try to walk on, only sometimes you can't.

    (trouble with fingers typing the wrong things)

  42. It's history, sailors, and a surprising show of military intelligence over at my place.

  48. My mind went in so many directions - but putting them down on paper was frustrating. This was not an easy prompt for me, but a GREAT exercise none-the-less. Very creative imagery here, Tess. Thank you!

  49. Carnage in the kitchen and the pomegranate is to blame...
