JUNE IS SQUARE AND ROOVES OR ROOFS ARE IN! – Marilyn Armstrong

It’s that time of year again and squares are back! 

From Becky B:


We had a fabulous day at Kew, but unless you saw the previews it probably isn’t that obvious from my header nor my square what the theme is this month! Well the theme is ROOFS (or rooves if you prefer!). Your roof can be;

A – any type, any condition, any size, and in any location.
B – it could be a shot across rooftops, of one roof like today or even a macro
C – you might prefer to spend some time under the eaves and in the attic, or enjoy the view from above as Brian has already done today.

It’s a stunner so do pop across and say hi. Today I’m not above but in front, and not a tile in sight. I thought instead I’d look at a glass roof, and in fact I’ve decided to keep to glass for most of the week ahead.

By the way although I will be posting daily as this is a daily challenge,you are free to post alternate days, once a week or as and when the roof strikes you. My posts will appear early morning with the tag #RoofSquares, and I will do my best to visit your posts daily.


And my, personally, I’m doing a few tunnels. Probably not all week because I don’t think I have enough of them, but let’s give it a go!

If you are local, welcome to the Merritt Parkway, aka Route 15

See you tomorrow!

SQUARE ROOVES – 1

SQUARING THE SQUARE WITH SOME CIRCLES WITHIN

Circles and squares in squares. What could be simpler? Flowers with center circles and some wonderful colors.

SQUARING THE SQUARE AFTER SQUARE ON THE HIGHWAY

Circles and squares in squares. What could be simpler? Another look at the roads and the square — or really, oblongs — in formation along the road.

SQUARING THE CIRCLE – ROUNDISH FUCHSIA

Circles and squares in squares. What could be simpler? Almost anything. Today, it’s round (or mostly round) pods on the fuchsia.

Very rounded fuchsia

SQUARED CIRCLE AND A PIZZA CUTTING TOOL

Circles and squares in squares. What could be simpler? Almost anything? What could be rounder than the pizza cutting tool? It is indeed very round.

Squared yet somehow round — the pizza cutter

SQUARING THE CIRCLE – THE OLD TOLL BOOTHS ON THE PIKE

Circles and squares in squares. What could be simpler? Almost anything. Today, it’s the old toll booths on the Mass Turnpike. They’ve been removed now and they check your entries and exits using cameras and signals. But before that and for years and years, we had toll booths. I have no idea how people who don’t have a tag on their car pay for using the pike. I know they do it, so I assume they photograph the car’s license plate and bill its owners. Something like that!

Squared toll booths?
