The tree fence

Ragtag Daily Prompt Friday: Excrescence

Every time I drive past this tree, which is rarely, I always stop to make sure it is still growing well. It originally would have had fencing wire wrapped around it, using it as a fence stay. Over time the Spotted Gum tree just consumed the wire and grew like this.

Isn’t it amazing what nature can do?

It’s in there

Ragtag Daily Prompt Friday: Stow

As well as collecting elephants I also have a box fascination.

This one is from the early 1900’s and has a worn green flock lining. It currently is a place where I stow some blankets and pillows in the loungeroom. The box also serves as a table.

What do I stow in here? At the moment it is full of old photo frames that get used when I need them.

At Christmas time in years past, it also stowed the Christmas presents, guarded by the Christmas “bears”

The box stowed full of mysterious treasures

A Glass Elephant

Ragtag Daily Prompt Wednesday: Exquisite

Some of you may know I have a large collection of Elephants, not real ones but ornamental Elephants. A while ago a good friend gave me a glass Elephant with golden features. The first words that came out of my mouth was exquisite so I thought that this would be a good subject for the theme.

Well it is hard to get a good image of glass objects so here are a few of the better photos I hope.

Where do I begin

Ragtag Daily Prompt Saturday: Birds

No idea what to post as this is just too hard for me. I decided to go from small to tall and just a few photos or otherwise you would be here for days.
