Cee’s FOTD Challenge: February 27, 2020

Milkweed again 1 zoomMilkweed seed bestMilkweed seed 1I hope these images meet with approval from the other participants in Cee’s Flower of the Day challenge. I captured these when I was wandering about the grasslands on the shore of the Severn River. It is unlawful to go tramping around the fragile ecosystem that is the grasslands, so I only observed from the edge. The park where I took these photos is called the Jonas and Catherine Green Park.

Not satisfied with posting the photographs of the milkweed seeds, I have decided to share something that is all the way over on the other side of the dial- an orchid.

Sorry! No macro today… I’ve said this before. Sometimes I get so caught up with creating the perfect macro that I forget about the big picture.

Ragtag Daily Prompts: Flaky, October 27, 2019

Sundial sepia“We have to call the repairman again,” sighed Monica.

“Why?” Asked Karl. “What’s wrong?”

“It’s that damn sundial again.” Replied Monica bitterly.

“Why bother?” Said Karl in a wistful tone. “That thing is so flaky. We pay the man to come out here. He fixes it, and then three days later, we have to call him back again. Let’s cut our losses and just let it go.”

“Never,” Monica didn’t miss a beat. “I’m not one to let things go!”

Ragtag Daily Prompts: A Flower Cried

FOTD 5 sepis

Remember the day the faerie died?

A bird lost its course. A flower cried.

The wind grew still, and then it sighed.

The children grew old with eyes opened wide.
