7 Days of Nature Challenge (7/7)

I started the 7 Days of Nature Challenge about 2 weeks ago and life got in the way of me completing within the 7 day timeframe.  I still wanted to finish challenge.

These dandelions are all over my yard.  Although they are annoying and make ones yard look unkept I still like them.

7 Days of Nature Challenge (6/7)

Mother Nature has thrown a tantrum

The calendar says that spring arrived on March 20 which was twenty days ago.  Now Mother Nature must not like us telling her when to start Spring so she had to let us know that she was was not finished with winter yet.  She blanketed part of the north-east United Sates with varying degrees of snow.

Here in NJ we got a bit more than a dusting but not too bad compared to what some got out in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Here are some pictures from my part of the world.

When will Spring actually arrive?

7 Days of Nature Challenge (5/7)

By Any Means

This picture was taken about a year ago at a local fishing dock.  It looks like this tree did everything it could to emerge thru the crack.  The leaves are all tattered but it survived.

This is how we should live.  Do what we need to do to achieve out goals.  Don’t get discouraged at the first or second obstacle that gets in our way.  We need to keep pushing towards the goal that we sent.

7 Days of Nature Challenge (4/7)

One of the things I thought might happen (but hoped would not) when I accepted the 7 Day Nature Challenge has happened….I forgot to post for 2 days.

So today I will make up for my missing post.

While viewing pictures on IG I came across an image that rcmannjr completed and just knew that I had to try it.  Here is my version. Although it is not as “clean” as his I think it is a good first try.

This is not the first thing that you think of when thinking of nature but as we all know flowers are part of nature.

No nomination now will add a couple with my last Nature Challenge post later today.

Thanks for visiting!

My 3rd entry for the 7 Days of Nature Challenge

About 2 weeks ago my grandson and I went for our second adventure in the woods (picks come soon).  On our walk I came across this fungus growing on some trees.

I think the first one looks like steps.

7 Days of Nature Challenge (1/7)

Lena over at iPictureThis nominated me for the 7 Day Nature Photo Challenge and I gladly accept.

April has started out like the old saying says “April Showers Bring May Flowers”.  Yesterday was raining off and on all day and today is chilly and very gray.

While running errands today I saw these flowers (of course I don’t know the name) and they brought a bit of sunshine into a dull day.  I wish that the blooms would last longer.
