Always an interesting challenge from the Cosmic Photo Challenge
“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”
― Chinese proverb
Yew-Tree Print Article
An evergreen tree of the genus taxus, allied to the pines, and valued for its wood or timber, is very commonly found planted in the old English churchyards; and was formerly much used to decorate churches at Christmas, Palm-Sunday, and Easter.
I love to see new bloggers coming out with their idea of a new challenge; who doesn’t love a challenge. This one and who could resist with a name like
“Whatsoever is Lovely!”
The world might be falling apart but for me, (Living) I must be crazy because everything is always lovely! Although it is cold outside and quite icy on my street, I remember walking through the grounds of my Church property known as Mount St. Michael in Spokane Wa. where we celebrate only the Traditional Catholic Church before — the dreaded epoch of 2 Thessalonians 2:3 occurred. “Let no man deceive you by any means, for unless there comes a revolt first,” (Vatican II).
These are some of the pictures you would see walking there on the park-like grounds on a beautiful Spring day.
Whatsoever is lovely!♫
Looking forward to doing this walk again, if God allows me to live to see another Spring Day; next time I will post some images of our rosary walkway that overlooks the city of Spokane.
We meander through the overgrowth while seeing the green beyond, closer and closer each day. Do you see the finish line?
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge Also known as CFFC
Theme is HERE COMES THE SUN
My contribution with my images below:
Here comes the sun do, do, do
And I say it’s all right
Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter
Anytime I want to find a place for great pictures I just walk around the acres of land near and through Mount St. Michael, a Traditional Catholic parish, here in Spokane.
Turkeys run wild all around the Mount, here is a capture I took with their family and friends.
Hey! Conservatives, don’t let the turkeys get you down! (the devil made me say that!)
Next my landscape, also within the park-like grounds of Mount St. Michael, inviting all to browse the mysterious path to who knows what is beyond the gateway!
Don’t stop yet, see below: While I was there I also found this odd, bumpy humpy tree near the gym, at Mount St. Michael, I squared it off for the TreeSquare challenge running here on WordPress.
all the FAKERY!
LEARNING! I never knew that was going to be such a plus when I started a blog.
I was inspired to take a few images I had; finally, I managed to capture a hummingbird after so many hours of waiting.
I liked the half color and half B&W of Marsha’s post, so I tried to copy her idea!
Soon I will be 81 years old, and true I may not be that funny or athletic or good-looking or smart or talented. I forgot where I was going with this post. I am not complaining; after all, I love being 80. I learn something new every day and forget five other things.
Oh! Now I remember what it was I wanted to write.
I wanted to share a smile!
Did someone say snow?
Tanka poetry inspired by a tranquil image of Trent P. McDonald as seen above.
Colleen suggests Synonyms for two words; move and make. I chose to use “create” for make and “drift” for move.
Draws life from above —peaceful!
Holding captive souls as it
Obeys — drifting straits foretold.
… seeing this as your Guardian Angel carries you off to Heaven, someday!
Today the subject; Trees! Don’t you just love them!
This First one has always reminded me of a Dancing Tree so I add a little help!
Next, who said lumpy is ugly?
Finally, a Tree growing within a Tree!
As I have said before on anywhere on my blog at WordPress: all my photographs or artwork are NOT copyrighted, free to use. At my age who cares if you borrow my work. I have other things to be concerned with. ♥
Just happen to find this LENS-ARTIST Challenge here, where else: but WordPress and it seems they are looking this week for “Something Different.” The story behind this photo is last week I woke early and noticed a heavy fog just before sunrise. Didn’t even have my coffee yet, but grabbed my camera and took this image of the house just over the hill, it looked sort of “spooky,” I thought with those “eyes” peering over at me. I do love spooky!
None of my photos or art or poetry or anything I post is every copyrighted so feel free. At my age, who cares, if you want to use it. (79)
Ragtag Daily Prompt — The word today is “Inspire” along with my contribution to Tanka poetry.
Rugged, tough, lumpy
Inspired via the knobby
beauty found offbeat
hidden right before your eyes
behold before you stumble!
