Five Photos, Five Stories Day 4

Thanks Elizabeth from who invited me to participate in this 5 day challenge!

The “challenge”. Post a photo each day for 5 consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction. Elizabeth’s photos are outstanding. If you haven’t visited her blog….you should!



I took this photo while walking the dogs.  I love this sweet little flower.  It’s like a dogwood flower, or a pansy, but very low growing.  The ditch where I found this one wasn’t a grand photo opportunity, but this little beauty deserved some attention.

Just goes to show that wild flowers can dress up the ugliest flood channels.


The buttercup.

Friendly as a pansy, but not as flashy.

She still dresses the new meadow with sweet color.

Her buttery yellow center is cupped by the pale pink petals.

The bees and butterflies will visit and flirt with her till the heat drives her away.

thanks Elizabeth from for your invitation!  It is an honor and I hope to live up to a smidgen of your talent.  

The “challenge”. Post a photo each day for 5 consecutive days and attach a story to the photo.  It can be fiction or non-fiction.  Elizabeth’s photos are outstanding.  She studies the art, and is a credit to it.  I’m humbled to get to sharpen myself, and apprentice along. Please, if you haven’t visited her blog…you should, she is an amazing talent.

the moon in the magnolias

Dusk in the south is sticky….humidity high and Mosquitos out everywhere.  The whir and buzz of their blood thirsty wings can’t stop me from looking at the moon.  

The same orb that influences the tides, pulls us body and soul.

The same moon that reflects the the light gives me hope that the sun will come up again. 

There will be a new dawn.

Peace my friends.

Thanks for letting me participate.
