PPAC 10 Featured Bloggers
We had a marvelous response from all of you on last week’s PPAC #10. I had the privilege to pick out the featured bloggers and say “thank you” to each of you for joining along in our challenge. These posts really grabbed my attention. They are all worthy of a second or third look.
PRESCOTT LOO WITH A VIEW OR TWO
Just blocks from downtown Prescott a left hand turn could land you at Prescott National Forest and Goldwater Lake. A few blocks before that turn is a hidden park and cemetery called Acker Park. Vince turned and our exploration began.
There’s not much to the park – playground equipment and a small outdoor movie theatre. The cemetery behind it has some interesting markers, though it appears that no one maintains it.
However, the Loo with a View, dedicated in 2010, is worth the trip.
I’m sure there is so much symbolism involved in all of the paintings, and since Mr. Acker loved children, the pictures are all things that children love. I didn’t count, but I think there were more animals than any other category of pictures. These paintings reminded me of the style drawn in the 1940s-50s, which would represent the popular art Mr. Acker and the children must have enjoyed.
This month, since TreeSquares is over, I decided to participate in Cee’s Flower of the Day Challenge – (FOTD). Like Becky B, Cee offers us the freedom to post every day or when we feel like it. I made the mistake of classifying my trees as flowers for about half the month last month. So this month – no trees. (maybe). Cee’s FOTD challenge accepts:
- Single flowers
- Multiple flowers
- Flower fields
- Tree or bush blossoms
- Autumn leaves
- Spring leaves
- Decorative Cabbage
- I am so excited to announce that #WQWWC is hosted on September 1 by Yvette Prior on work and careers – her specialty.
- August Story Chat Summary aired today for A Dress for a Princess. Thank you so much, Cathy for hosting August and September Story Chat. You won’t want to miss her posts as she introduces some new-to-us authors.
