Wednesday's Photos and Words..

"A fool sees not the same tree that a wise man sees."
~ William Blake

"A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love."
~ Saint Basil

"All things share the same breath - the beast, the tree, the man... the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports."
~ Chief Seattle


Known simply as "The Perimeter" this tree stands a silent sentry that keeps party goers safe.. Our Lensday Challenge of today is trees.. Trees give us shade from the hot sun.. they freshen the air around them.. I have tied tires and sticks and even sacks filled with old clothes to the outstretched limbs of trees and then sat upon those things to swing for hours.. I have planted tender young trees and watched them grow and I have seen old trees struggle and finally fall.. I have even hugged a tree..


Watery Wednesday asks us each week to share a photo that shows our admiration for Water..I love water as much as I do trees.. I hate to see people toss litter of any kind into water.. I love to stroll along the beach listening to the sound of the waves as they roll across the sand.. washing away even the footprints that would show that I was there.. Lately the beaches are often crowded and many times littered.. I ask everyone to do their part to keep our waters clean and litter free!


A replica of a vessel from days gone by this beauty looks as if it could have sailed the seven seas.. I can almost imagine pirates with swords drawn leaping on to it's polished deck.. no pity for the simple sailors as they forced them to walk the plank.. after all pirates needed spices and silk as much as they needed rum and gold..

Three Word Wednesday offers us these words top write something from this week.....fear, ignore, weightless

No Swimming!

weightless in water
all fear overcome by glee~
ignore not the sign

Written By: Patricia Sawyer
This has been a wonderful.. even if tiring.. week.. we have planted and trimmed and hatched and accepted and give away critters.. some of us have rambled in the woods and sunk up to our parts in the muddy pits of the swamp... searching and finding and not finding...but through it all we have laughed... I hope everyone out there had a wonderful Wednesday!

I love the feeling of weightlessness in water. I have a deep love of it.

Nicely written. It brought me back to fond memories at the lake.

Nicely, I like the way you condensed this into a Haiku length piece!

there is nothing so sweet as floating on one's back looking up at the blue sky knowing all is well...
