SHS Photo Challenge 35

So we meet again to share our finds for this week's scavenger hunt.   Might I say, they were rather challenging but that always makes it fun and calls forth the creativity in so many.  Looking forward to seeing what you all found.  

 1.  Meet Me at the Corner
 Last Sunday on my way to church I spied this lovely dogwood as I turned a corner.  
I made a date with myself to meet here at the corner and take some photos on the way home.  
I have included a close-up just because they are so lovely.

2.  Mother Nature Meets Technology
 This is a solar powered butterfly which flutters around the spike on sunny days.  It was originally purple but has faded to this lovely blue specimen after weeks in the sun.

3.  One Step at a Time
 On silent cat feet, one step at a time, she creeps into my suite for a visit . . .
Chloe, the eldest cat of the household.  
(Too funny, I just finished typing this and turned around and there she was . . . Hi Chloe.)

4.  What's Wrong With This Picture?
Okay, I confess, it is a contrived shot . . . I didn't find anything in my travels this week that fit the prompt.

5.  Standing Tall

 Although all the little purple petals have fallen away these alliums with their seed pods are still standing tall.

Linking with Ashley at Ramblings and Photos.


  1. Nice set. I found the prompts to be tough, so contrived or not, I like it! Have a great week.
