Spare – Weekly Photo Challenge 27 May 2016

This week the Weekly Photo Challenge theme is Spare.

There is three definitions of spare to choose from for this challenge. I chose the first, an adjective form : Additional to what is required for ordinary use.



In the past I have been known to plant a big garden. It is one of the thing I love the most about summer. Sometimes I plant too much and cannot enjoy it all. I usually plant watermelons, which I did, but I hardly ever plant another member of the melon family, the Cantaloupe. It is not that I do not enjoy the Cantaloupes, I certainly do, but they just don’t do well for me. As it happens I got a tray of plants from my daughter’s boyfriend and decided to plant only the largest plants. After doing this I am left with a few to spare and replant if the others falter.


My other spare is an extra couple of Blackberry Lily plants that have found their way outside the bounds of one of our flower beds. So far I have been careful not to catch them with my trimmer when I am cutting the weeds, but I hope to transplant when they grow a little bigger.

What is your ideas for spare? I will be looking!
