Sunday Selections #776



Sunday Selections was originally brought to us by Kim, of Frogpondsrock, as an ongoing meme where participants could post previously unused photos languishing in their files. Huge thanks to Cie who gave me this wonderful Sunday Selections image. 

The meme was then continued by River at Drifting through life.  Sadly she has now stepped aside (though she will join us some weeks), and I have accepted the mantle. 
 
The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent.  Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to me. Clicking on any of the photos will make them embiggen.
 

I usually run with a theme. This week I am reverting to type and featuring skyscapes.  I am usually outside just after first light (dealing with garbage and kitty litter).  Often I take the camera with me.

We had a full moon this week.  As usual I tried to take photos and as usual I failed.  I enjoyed our dawns though - despite light frosts.















I hope your weeks are bright and beautiful.

Words for Wednesday 22/5/2024





This meme was started by Delores a long time ago.  Computer issues led her to bow out for a while.  The meme was too much fun to let go, and now Words for Wednesday is provided by a number of people and has become a movable feast. 
Essentially the aim is to encourage us to write.  Each week we are given a choice of prompts: which can be words, phrases, music or an image.   What we do with those prompts is up to us:  a short story, prose, a song, a poem, or treating them with ignore...  We can use some or all of the prompts, and mixing and matching is encouraged. 
 
Some of us put our creation in comments on the post, and others post on their own blog.  I would really like it if as many people as possible joined into this fun meme, which includes cheering on the other participants.  If you are posting on your own blog - let me know so that I, and other participants, can come along and applaud.  And huge thanks to those of you who come back, sometimes time after time to cheer other contributors on.
 
The prompts will be here this month, but they are being provided by David M. Gascoigne. An additional prompt from Charlotte (MotherOwl) is to include Bright Red Orange in your take on the prompts.
 
This week's prompts are:

  1. Solar
  2. Polls
  3. True
  4. People
  5. Indication

and/or
 
  1. Celestial
  2. Temperature
  3. Concern
  4. Obvious
  5. Surreal




 Have fun.

I usually run with a theme. I am reverting to type again this week and am mostly in our garden (or looking up and down the street).  It is still autumn here (which I am revelling in) but parts of the garden are confused.

Starting with autumn glory.







 Other parts of the garden say that winter is here.



There are pockets where it is still summer.






 

And in other places Spring is well on the way.





This volunteer plant blooms in numerous spots in the garden all year round - much to Batty and Odie's displeasure.




Whatever your season I hope you find colour and beauty in it.
