Going nutty!

by Helen Hooker January. 06, 2013 8426 views

I spent what felt like an eternity this afternoon unsuccessfully trying to find my photo for the day. I tried all sorts of macro subjects as the light outside was far from inspiring but nothing seemed to work. I was on the verge of giving up (for the first time in over four years of daily posting) when I remembered the bowl of home grown hazelnuts which sits in our kitchen. Bingo ?? I had found my photo! Five frames later this is the rather minimalist result and I can now get on with what I should have been doing hours ago…..

I saw this and couldn't help but think of the squirrel from Ice Age. I think it's going to rush into the scene and try to bury it any second now.

I half expect to see Scrat (the sabretoothed squirrel from Ice Age) peering manically at your nut and trying desperately to get hold of it...

You're almost certainly too young to remember the ad for Topic bars which had a song: "what has a hazel nut in every bite?" I remember the "alternative" answer, which used to get the whole class giggling.
