Now remember if a daily #TreeSquare sounds daunting, it is okay to join weekly or even just pop in occasionally with your trees. The frequency and content of your squares entirely depends on you and your blog. The only absolute rule for joining in with Squares is that your photograph must be square in shape!Becky B.
In this month’s square’s challenge I will start at home and spiral farther and farther from home to share different tree species in my travels. All of these posts will work for both Becky B’s Squares and Cee’s Flower of the Day, #FOTD
Prescott Walk #14B Prescott National Forest: Lynx Lake
Vince surprised me with a quick ride to get out of the house for a bit after the temperature had cooled to 96 degrees. It turned into a photo shoot – without my new camera and in my flip flops.
Not all trees have such distinctive bark as the alligator pine tree. I’ve loved these since we first discovered them at Slide Rock State Park outside of Sedona in 2017.
I like to imagine shapes and faces in clouds too. Another good place to look for faces is in gnarled old trees.Jules
I missed this one when Cee had her Faces in Things challenge. It’s a long shot, but maybe an alien face?
So it thrilled me to see a tree at Lynx Lake I could name with certainty.
I don’t see any faces, though. In my mind I hear the kindergarten ditty I used to do with my five-year-old students.
Alligator stew, alligator stew, If I don’t get some I don’t know what I’ll do. Give away my furry hat, give away my shoe, But don’t give away my alligator stew.
There ought to be one starting with Alligator Tree. Oh wait – here’s one.
Alligator tree, alligator tree, If I don't find one, it will sure be bad for me. Take away my computer, take away my key. But don't take away my alligator tree. © 2021 Marsha Ingrao
