#SundayStillsEmerging #Prescott Walk #10 #Jude’s Life in Colour
Good morning, everyone. Happy Sunday.
I know you hoped to see Terri again in her new house blinged with internet service and all the other new-house bling. Alas, the internet has not EMERGED on time, and you are stuck with me as your hostess for one more week. So please, grab your camera, sift through your photo archives, and play along!!!
When Terri asked me if I’d hang in there for one more Sunday, I agreed knowing that I’d be doing Sunday Stills anyway. As the guest hostess, it just means I have to get my post done a little sooner, LOL.
I can do this!

Emerging on my Street, Blooming Hills Drive
I walked around our neighborhood with Puppy Girl on Tuesday night. I wanted to give you something fresh that just EMERGED out of my camera. The golden hour of 4:30-5:30 pm felt like about 65 degrees F. with a fairly brisk breeze, I stayed comfortable with a sweatshirt over my long-sleeved shirt. Puppy Girl was fine without her jacket.
I scanned the lawns and landscaping and found very little color EMERGING from the ground except weeds. Trees and bushes were starting to leaf out. So I thought this theme can’t be all about spring flowers emerging out of the soil. I’m not in California any more. This EMERGING dandelion adds some bright color to the grass for Becky B’s #BrightSquare and Cee’s FOTD (Flower of the Day), and it was all I could find!
Obviously Geoffrey, from Tuesday’s Story Chat, “Miniature Planet,” by prize-winning author, Doug Jacquier, doesn’t live on Blooming Hills Drive. (You’ll have to read the story to verify that statement.)
Emerging Theme One: Bright Blossoms
On March 29, I took pictures of Blooming Hills as the blossoms emerged. Leaves delayed, white blossoms proliferated, Granted, I played with the photo by adding a couple of filters in Photoshop Elements.
In less than a week leaves started EMERGING. On April 6th leaves appeared between the blossoms. I love the threesome of leaves that are emerging at the top of the left-hand picture. The tiny middle leaf looks almost like a star.
As we strolled down the street that same evening, we noticed that some of the trees didn’t realize that the weather had changed. The trees feared the return of a wintery 30 degrees instead of the lovely 82 degrees it was yesterday.
On closer inspection, the tree above showed signs of life.
As we continued up Blooming Hills Drive, we noticed that not all trees blossomed at an even rate. This single peach tree might have been two different trees, one in full bloom and left side still waiting for warmer weather. The owner told me that the blooms only lasted for two weeks.
About a week ago, Prescott endured 30 mile an hour winds. The gale stripped the tree of about half of the blossoms before the leaves had fully emerged. These two photos are submitted to Jude for her Life in Colour pink challenge.
Emerging Theme Two: New Homes
In this EMERGING real estate market, the dearth of inventory of homes for sale is the bane of realtors. As we drove down the street earlier in the day, my realtor husband, pointed to his left and said, “Emerging, look a house is emerging.”
What is EMERGING from YOUR imagination and files of photos?
EMERGING breaking out, popping up, transpiring, becoming apparent , ore even surviving a difficult situation. EMERGING can refer to markets, technology, butterflies, economies, countries, resources, and much more.
