June Photo Challenge - Day 17

The term Bokeh comes from the Japanese word boke, meaning "blur" or "haze”. Interesting to note, though not surprising, the Japanese also use the term boke to describe a sense of mental haze or senility.

That’s exactly how I approached today’s challenge: in a state of mental haze. Specifically, how the heck was I going to pull this one off? (Day 17 and I am already running out of subjects and ideas. Oy.)

Lucky for me, an impromptu lunchtime trip to my fella’s house to let the dog out gave me an opportunity to snap a few pictures in the garden. While Roxy did her business, I went about mine.

Turns out, flowers aren’t just good for bouquets, they’re good for bokehs, too.
