Cosmic Photo Challenge

“Only God can make a TREE.”

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”

― Chinese proverb

Reaching down to grab you, it seems!

A holy Tree
Care to dance?
No! Not an elephant trunk, but a tree trunk
Yew Tree, the only image plucked from the internet

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.

This is the Cosmic Photo Challenge

Whatsoever IS

Whatsoever is Lovely

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.

Anyone for images of Landscapes and/or Fields

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.

Having fun while waiting for the end … of

all the FAKERY!

****************************

Today while reading the talented bloggers here, since I consider myself still learning so much. I was looking at Marsha’s beautiful examples of black and white and her introduction to Anne.

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!

Weekly Smile

The Beauty of Snow

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?

Reflections to Enjoy

THE Photo Prompt

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.

Magnetic water
Draws life from above —peaceful!
Create reflections
Holding captive souls as it
Obeys — drifting straits foretold.
