Is Tuesday too late for a travel theme? My weekend turned into something unexpectedly tumultuous and I’ve just come up for air. I know next weekend is drawing near (not near enough for all those Monday to Friday-ers) but perhaps there is still time to fit in a travel theme, so here are a few of my attempts to get as near as possible to the subject matter, starting with a closeup of some frosted leaves in the dead of winter.
And at the opposite side of the seasonal circle, a burst of summery yellow.
A fresh splash of springtime lilac…
…and a steamy look at fungi growing on a tree in a very humid part of the Cascades.
Teeny tiny plant raindrop holders on top of Mount St Helens…
…a freak hailstorm in Seattle…
…some leafy raindrops at the Bloedel Reserve…
…bu my favourite close encounter was with this lovely creature up on top of Hurricane Ridge in the Olympics – she came so near I could smell her musky scent, she was beautiful.
OK, I’m nearly ready to offer up this near miss of a travel theme for your interpretation. If you would like to join in (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:
- Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Near
- Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
- Watch out for the next travel theme which will come out next weekend
