Suburb-The Changing Seasons V2 (November 2017)

November Transformation

Change Haiku (Embellish)

Embellishing change
Being bright, vibrant, and bold
Transforming each day

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

This is my eleventh 2017 post for year three of Cardinal Guzman’s photo challenge, The Changing Seasons. You can post a photo gallery (V1) or a single photo (V2) that showcases your view of the month. You can check out the Cardinal’s page for the general challenge rules and join right in! His photos are fantastic! Like last year, I am planning to add a haiku along with my single V2 photo each month. Even though it has been said that a picture paints a thousand words, I like pairing pictures and words; both can still mean different things to different people.

All my previous Changing Seasons posts are in one place under the Changing Seasons header at the top of the page. Take a look around my blog if you are interested! Comments are welcome!

Also, these trees in midst of changing colors and changing seasons seem a good match for the daily post weekly photo challenge: transformation


Nature Walk-Redbud



It’s day three of the seven days of nature challenge. The redbud is one of my favorite trees. I love the color of its blossoms.

I also have a sentimental memory attached to redbud trees. When I was little, my dad planted a redbud in the yard for me. I can still remember standing at my kitchen door, watching him plant my tree as it poured down rain.

I was invited to participate in this photo challenge by Desleyjane of musings of a frequent flying scientist. Today, I would like to invite ghostmmnc of teleporting weena to join us. If interested, just post a nature photo each day for seven days and ask someone to join in!

I will likely post a photographic mix of birds, wildlife, flowers and other nature scenes. feel free to join in the fun!

Buildings and Trees and Memories



I love the buildings and trees theme for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week.

The first photo, above, is of a home that can be seen nestled among the trees and mountains. I wonder if the view from the house is as beautiful as the view of it!

The next photo, below, was taken during a recent visit to a near-by park. A picnic shelter can be seen through the stark trees that have lost, or are in the process of losing, their leaves.

The third picture shows colorful trees surrounding a gazebo, barn and a historic building that may actually be a town museum. I will have to investigate further! The view is across from a duck pond that I posted about earlier.

I was a bit creative in my final photo selection. The nest in my backyard tree was initially built by a robin. But later in the summer, a crafty squirrel added on to it and claimed it as his own!



I enjoyed searching through my photo archives for this challenge, reminiscing about the day and people attached to each one. Isn’t it great how simple photos can evoke memories and emotions?
