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.

Adventure 2

About 2 weeks ago Arai and I went on our second adventure into the woods.  I never noticed that there is a trail that the folks that ride 4 wheelers use is just outside my yard.  So on this day we decided to take that trail instead of wandering aimlessly.

Most of the pictures of Arai were of his back.  I had to keep telling to slow down and wait for Mom-mom and of course I got the why and I had to admit that I am old and can’t run as fast as you.  A few times the look he gave aid “you need to hurry up Mom-mom”.  So I had to distract him with looking up at the trees and looking down at the new plants springing forth.  But that did not last long he wanted to keep going.


Arai likes pirates and pirate maps.  He knows that “X” is where to find the treasure.  Before Spring is over I will be making a treasure map and hiding different treasure for him to find.  Only problem I see with this….who will takes pictures?


Thanks for visiting and sorry for the picture over load!


Life in a Jar

My grandson and I went for another walk in the woods on Sunday.  We had a great time exploring.  I came across these to jars that had moss growing in them.

It is amazing how nature finds a way to over come obstacles that are in their way.

If it were only this easy for us.

Emerging Alien

Sometimes when out taking pictures we have to remember to look down as well as up.  You can possibly be surprised at what you can discover.

Looking up while I was leaving the lake I noticed this tree branch.  When I saw it the first thing I thought was an alien coming out of the tree.

The knot on the side looks like an eye, the broken branches look like the mouth is wide open, and the broken branch on the top could be a curvy horn.

Do you see what I see or is my imagination just running wild?

Emerging Alien!?
