Weekly Photo Challenge: Unlikely

May 6, 2018 § 8 Comments

For a week or so now this huge non-fruit bearing Pear tree has been in full bloom. I’ve never seen flowering trees this size. While trying to get a decent photo (this is 10x zoom) my lens caught an unlikely visitor going for a bird’s eye view…WPC-unlikely4WPC-unlikely1WPC-unlikely2WPC-unlikely3WPC-unlikely5

…and though UNLIKELY…a little nap in the sunshine.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Prolific

From the archives…all on Whidbey Island, WA – all of Nature’s bounty…

There is a stretch of beach along Admiralty Bay on Whidbey Island where odd shaped stones are found. But they’re not stones, really. More like baked clay from the cliffside. Actually they are called concretions – “a hard, compact mass of matter formed by the precipitation of mineral cement within the spaces between particles.” – Wikipedia. Beach walkers find them and display them on a driftwood log or a boulder – like this one. They are too miraculous to take from the site (though they are…and I have! created a little patio in front of an Adirondack chair in my backyard once…then returned them all to the beach several months later). This community collection grew over one summer. Many shaped like fried eggs! Click on ‘concretion’ in the tags below to see other photos of them on my site.   PROLIFIC

Exploring my new neighborhood south of downtown Spokane, WA – a peek of it in this photo taken from the top of Lincoln Park. That’s Mt Spokane in the distance.MtSpokane1Ponderosa pines among tall grasses and rock outcroppings grace this place.Ponderosa1

A couple miles west of the park sits a beautiful old building from the ’20’s, once a neighborhood grocery store… Rockwood1Rockwood2…now an inviting bakery.Rockwood3
