Outdoors, Weekly Photo Challenge

It IS Easy Being Green

For this week’s photo challenge, I am posting four pictures.

Not looking very spring-like yet, but plenty of green.

Trees, of course, they can’t be missing.

Moss.

Okay, so that’s not strictly green only, but everyone loves daffodils, right?

It IS Easy Being Green!

 

PS: Can I just say, I much preferred the Weekly Photo Challenge on Fridays. I know it technically doesn’t matter because you can post any time, but still, I liked Fridays better. And what happened to Discover Challenges on Tuesdays, they stopped doing them altogether without telling us why. I asked on Twitter but got no response…

Solitude

This is my kind of weekly photo challenge! I love being on my own (have you read my description?) I even love the word “solitude“. Introverts get exhausted when they spend too much time among people and recharge once they’re alone. It’s the other way round with extroverts.

I chose the above photograph because it’s one of my most recent ones and I like crows. There are endless possibilities with this challenge: landscapes, sunsets/sunrises, any lone animals, one candle, a single cup of coffee, a book or e-reader.

I’m reminded of a quote of one of my favourite authors, Lucy Maud Montgomery, from the book Anne of Windy Poplars, which is part of the Anne series (though I think the same one, or very similar, also appeared in one of the Emily of New Moon books):

I was alone but not lonely. I held a series of imaginary conversations with imaginary comrades and thought out so many epigrams that I was agreeably surprised at myself.

Anne was an orphan and it wasn’t until the age of eleven that she found a loving home. Her imagination that helped her survive the hard years of her early childhood.

The tree that marches to the beat of its own drum–see how it’s dancing without a care in the world?
