Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh

Weekly Photo Challenge for 7/19/13: FreshThe definition for fresh has a bit of a fork in it – it’s a state (new, recent, previously unknown) and it’s a taste or sensation (cool, sweet, invigorating, refreshing).

With the introduction of this week’s topic, I was not sure what to pursue. However, a couple of items just showed up in my home that seem to fit: fresh flowers and fresh sweet corn.

My wife experienced a slight mishap this past week, requiring “Good Samaritans” to come to her aid. Then, her dear friend arrived at our home this morning with a half-dozen roses. These fresh-cut flowers brightened her day! Grateful for the kindness of friends and strangers to bring aid and refreshment in the midst of pain.Fresh FlowersOne of the tasty parts of summer is fresh produce, and there is nothing that compares to Iowa sweet corn. It is just now coming into season and it is good!
