We have imitated our plants & have hibernated for the winter period , spring is here and we are slowly blossoming . Give us some time to undergo some maintenance, in the meantime here’s a picture of a blossoming tree . dirtychicken team .
It’s been a mighty three plus years of the dirtychicken blog , oh how time files .. It’s pretty stunning on how one documents a archive of events, memories & photo’s on a interesting period of my young precious life . The photo’s especially as I now have a self initiated disposable camera project at hand .
I know the last six months have been extremely quiet (not me the blog) as I’m now a graduate from university & experiencing the ‘fun’ life of a paid/unpaid intern . Don’t get me wrong it’s all inspiring & good but I find having a 9 to 5 and being a fresh graduate difficult to pursue a handful of true passions .So I will like to apologies on my behalf on the blog’s silence, I really appreciate the amount of followers & don’t worry we will be back soon ! In the meantime here are some of the dirtychickenblog’s highlight’s enjoy .
