Towering

Terri’s Sunday Stills: Towering Turmoil

I don’t know about the turmoil part but I sure I can get on with a bit of towering. Here’s a song to listen while having a scroll

I guess I did find a bit of towering turmoil after all. The good news is that the big Tallow Wood tree on my place is alive and standing and has new growth after the devastating fires of last year. In case you didn’t know here is a bit of what happened at Durranbah

Time #20- Time

This months photo challenge in square format from Becky is Time

This month I will put a song with the photo.

The December theme is TIME. I am sure everyone has found at least one #timesquare, but just in case you are struggling here are some #timesquare ideas;

Timepieces – clocks, watches, sun dials and egg timers
Sayings – Time & tide wait for no man (or woman!), A stitch in time saves nine, Early bird catches the worm, In the nick of time or More haste, less speed
Synonyms – era, moment, season, infinity, interval, lifetime and age
Out of the box – nighttime, downtime, pastime and mealtimes!

The Bells

The Ragtag Daily Prompt: Chime

I decided to chime into this conversation with a few bells that can ring in the day, or chime into your life.
When viewed from below you can see the actual chime that strikes the bell at the Grafton Cathedral.
