RAINDROPS KEEP FALLING ON MY HEAD, GARDEN, CAR, BIRDS, SQUIRRELS … Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: Raindrops

It has been raining more in the past few months than in any other months in the history of weather records, which is more than 200 years. April was the rainiest month ever recorded. Surprisingly, I don’t have a lot of rain pictures because I got pretty sulky about the rain and refused to go out unless it was a doctor’s appointment or grocery shopping. But I have a lot of pictures of birds and squirrels in the rain.

They don’t seem to mind. Or maybe having no choice in the matter, rain is just there, like the wind and the trees. It’s life in the big woods. Like snow and heat. When outside is home, the weather is life.

This squirrel is actually shaking off the raindrops.

LET THE SUNSHINE IN – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: Sunshine

It was the theme for my son’s fourth-grade graduation ceremony. Funny that I should remember it so clearly. My son is turning 50 in a few weeks and I’ve forgotten a lot, but this I remember. And I remember that I cried.

Getting Your Ducks in a Row

Around here, geese and ducks and often swans have a strong tendency to line up. If you’re using a long lens, this can be a problem. If there are a lot of geese or ducks or swans, you can’t get them all!

MEME WORTHY: A PHOTO A WEEK PROMPT – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: Meme-worthy Photos

Facebook is full of memes. I’m not much of a meme-writer. Usually, I use them as part of one of my own posts and I tend to use my own pictures, but I prefer to make them blurry and a bit abstract to not take away from the message, whatever it may be.

But this particular one is one of my favorite quotes from “The Good Omen” said by the devil to one of his minions. You should read the book. It’s hilarious.

AND THE COLOR IS PINK! A PHOTO A WEEK CHALLENGE – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: Pink

I have a particular favorite color of pink for clothing and it’s the only color pink I wear that isn’t a nightgown or underwear.

Hot pink.

I use to wear black and put a hot pink blazer over it. It looked great. Red works too, but hot pink has class. Otherwise, you won’t find pink in my furniture or even my sheets. I admit a few doll dresses are pink, but with dolls, you can’t entirely avoid pink. It’s a doll color.

And then there are flowers:
