The Dreads








The sun was shining brightly when I spotted them from a distance. I could not wait to get there and start shooting! These are called Dreadlock Amaranth. Aren't they amazing? I think they do look a bit like dreadlocks.

I bet you thought I was never coming back. We have both had quite a year with our illnesses. Sometimes I wondered myself if I would ever come back. But the thing is, I missed you all so much! So, here I am again! I will not be posting or commenting every single day like before. But I am so glad to be back and visit each of you to see what has been going on!
