Scavenger Hunt Sunday Photo Challenge 4

Sunday, fun day . . . time to reveal my interpretations of this week's clues and join the others that play along.  Ashley Sisk at Ramblings & Photos is the hostess with mostest.






1. Words
"Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."  John 14:27
Found while shopping with my daughter in one of her favourite spots to treasure hunt . . . HomeSense.


2.  Under
Shot taken while standing under this beautiful tree dressed in vivid autumn colours.

3. Orange

This lovely little fellow volunteered from the far side of the yard, perhaps a seed dropped by a bird into a crack in the concrete patio.  Such a cheery face to greet me unexpectedly one morning after the rain.

And here's my 'something learned' for this week.
Calendula officinalus, commonly called "pot marigold". The name Calendula stems from the Latin kalendae, meaning first day of the month, presumably because pot marigolds are in bloom at the start of most months of the year. Calendula has been used traditionally as both a culinary and medicinal herb. The petals are edible and can be used fresh in salads or dried and used to color cheese or as a replacement for saffron.

4. Fly

Last week I used the bottom of my windchimes for my circle shot, this week it's the top.
Dragonfly

5. Look on the bright side
The right side is the bright side of this leaf-strewn sidewalk.

This one is just for fun . . . for the hubbies.

If your wife insists you come shopping with her . . . look on the bright side . . . you can always find a comfy chair and take a nap.

  11. Isn't Autumn just a surprise of colour and warmth for the eyes and the soul!
    Love all your shots... the last flowers I have are the mighty purple asters and some California orange poppies standing bravely in my garden...
    I am off for a walk to the Willow to gather some beauty for my soul!
    love you dear!

  12. Just to set the record straight, the last picture is NOT my husband. I have no idea who he is, but I could not resist taking the shot. He slept there for at least half an hour.

  16. Andrea Dawn,

    I am very late coming here. I don't know how I missed commenting on all this. I was here before, but I did not pause to tell you how incredibly fun your interpretations are, especially the addition of the man sleeping on the chair at the end. I'm glad you put a disclaimer in the comments because I was wondering about any relationship there!

    My favorite was 'under' because you could have taken that in my yard and the thought that you have a place just like mine somewhere way off in Canada pleases me to no end.

    Waiting for your interpretations for another week's prompts tomorrow,
    Dawn
