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?

Becky’s Square Photo Challenge: #SquareUp

Yes, I have reached peak lazy today in doing my #SquareUps. I looked about for what up stuff I might have around the place. Took a few photos but not overly content with those. But then this popped up. Just the thing for a Square post.

Can you remember which square photo challenge this is from?

Blue #1 – Tangled up in Blue

There’s a new photo challenge for July from Becky: Blue

The theme for July squares which begins Monday is ‘Blue‘  I am hoping you’ll be having fun over the next 31 days with squares that could;

  1. be a ‘Bolt from the Blue’ – something unexpected or surprising
  2. explore ‘Into the wide blue yonder‘ – sky, sea or maybe a location that is appealingly unknown and mysterious
  3. simply be ‘Blue – whether that’s azure, cobalt, sapphire, cerulean, navy, ultramarine, indigo, or turquoise
  4. and there is an extra challenge for those of you up for it – can you manage to combine two of these, or maybe even all three?

I hope I don’t too tangled up in #Blue #JulySquares
