Over at A ‘Lil Hoohaa, PJ’s theme for her July photo challenge is Signs. I thought this would be a slam dunk. After all, we have signs, of one kind or another, all around us! So without further adieu, here is my interpretation of Signs in my little corner of the world.
If you’re not familiar with the concept of a round-about to
supposedly ease traffic flow at an intersection, this is the sign alerting you to slow down so you don’t careen around the tight little circle on two wheels. For the life of me I don’t understand why it’s so hard to have a 4-way stop and yield to the person who was there first, but evidently that is a difficult concept. The decorative graffiti is just a bonus sign to showcase how stupid untalented some people are.
Now, enough of the obvious.
Signs of a struggle
This lacy leaf is evidence of an all-out assault. Bug against tree. My guess is it’s cicadas since they are in full throttle around here now. The leaf may have lost the battle, but I think the tree is winning the war.
Signs of success
Remember when we were prepping the garden with visions of fresh summer veggies? Well, despite Mom Nature’s attempts to discourage our efforts with rain and cool temps this summer, we have a few things that are surviving. I wrote off this cherry tomato plant as dead about a month ago, but it rallied and Peanut may have bite-size tomatoes….by September?
Signs of affection
When walking during a break in the action at work, I came across a “billboard tree.” You’ve seen them…trees that evidently beg to be carved with someone’s message to the world. I wonder if J.M. knows he/she is the object of someone’s affection.
Go this way to PJ’s to see more of our interpretations of Signs. The Linky thingy showing everyone’s contributions should be up by tomorrow, August 1st.
