Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge

I’ve had these photos for a little while and finally decided that the only thing they’re good for is Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge! These mushrooms were growing out of the knothole in this old tree. I don’t think I’ve ever seen mushrooms like this. A few things passed through my mind while taking the photos — hungover sick tree; tree with forked tongue — you get the idea. 😛 😆

Phoneography Challenge: Nature

It’s that time. First Monday of the month, Lens and Pens by Sally has the Phoneography Challenge: Nature. Mother Nature is one force to be reckoned with, that’s for sure. Once she makes up her mind, she’s going to do exactly as she pleases.

I love trees. I suppose you could call me a “tree hugger” as I’ve been known to hug a tree or two throughout my days. When I was a kid, I used to love climbing as high up as I could go. My poor mother used to absolutely have frenzy attacks looking for me throughout the neighborhood. But the real attacks came when she finally looked up and saw me sitting in the tiny branches up high. I think about that time and wonder how I ever developed such a fear of heights now in my adulthood. I can barely climb a stepladder let alone climb a tree. I suppose it’s what they call mortality. Once you realize you’re not invincible….well, the fun just sort of goes away with that realization.
