A rantipole* person I'm not!

Welcome to Round 7 of ABC Wednesday. The meme was started by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt, and people from all over the world come together to play and share their entries. Each week word(s) beginning with the designated letter are selected and illustrate through a photo, poem or prose. My twist on the meme is selecting unusual words and pairing them with photos of familiar things in my world. I’ll be pulling words from sources here, here and, of course, here.

Let’s get unusual.

ruricolous: living in the country.
We live in the county about a mile outside the city limits. That may not sound too far out into the country, but it affords us views like these…unobstructed by roof lines.

ramage: boughs of a tree
ramate: branched
rameal: of, like or pertaining to branches
ramellose: having small branches
ramiferous: bearing branches
ramiform: branching; shaped like branches
Who knew there were so many words about a “tree”? Here are a few Autumn photos to celebrate The Tree and all its beautiful branches.

rantipole: wild; disorderly

  1. Ah, gorgeous photos and my weekly lesson in new, unique, interesting, sometimes difficult to pronounce words and this week they are terrific R words! Great post as always and photos of the trees are breathtaking! Hope your week is going well, Lisa!



  2. Ravishing photos of the trees! My favourite season. Most of the leaves are kicking around on the ground now and soon they will disappear into the muck or snow (which I hear we might be getting! NO!!!)


Please leave me some comment Luv! I appreciate each and every one.
