Photo Blogging Challenge: Four

PJ, over at A ‘lil HooHaa has been hosting a photo blogging challenge for four years this month. And, in honor of that momentous occasion, this month’s challenge is centered around……you guess it….Four.

I thought this would be a slam dunk this month. But I would have been misinformed. This was a much bigger challenge than I anticipated. On one hand, I’m still dealing with Entrepreneur’s post-brain surgery adjustment. He’s doing well…I’m the one who seems to be struggling.

So, you all will need to give me a little bit of latitude on some of these selections. 🙂

#1 Four
Included in this row of Bradford Pear trees are FOUR trees in full bloom. They lasted all of about four days before a late spring hard freeze turned all those lovely white blossoms brown..

#2 Four
Bridget is one of FOUR kittens that came to live with members of our family 12 years ago. The no-kill shelter nicknamed them the “Irish Kittens” because they found them on or around St. Patrick’s Day. Three are from one litter, the fourth was found somewhere else, but was assimilated in with the others. All four assimilated together nicely into the bed.

#3  Four
My grandfather’s violin (or is it a fiddle?) still has all FOUR strings in tact. Circa early to mid 1900s, I really don’t know its story other than he owned it. Wish I knew more.

#4 Four
Twix has a puzzle with FOUR separate puzzle scenes in one, which may be a little confusing when you’re only three years old. 🙂

#5 Four
Here’s where I need a bit more latitude. Since March is the month to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day, what better way than to look for FOUR-leaf clovers. What? You don’t see any in this shot? Neither do I. But, there may be one hiding in there so I think it should count. 🙂

Bonus FOUR foto!
Twix turned three years old in February. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, she was not able to have her “official” party until this month. So, here is the ONE-YEAR-LESS-THAN-FOUR-year-old birthday girl with FOUR presents. I thought it only fitting to include this since PJ’s photo challenge is celebrating FOUR years old this month.

Whew….Be sure to visit PJ’s place to see how others interpreted the prompt this month.

  1. Well, if Twix turned three, it was actually her fourth birthday: the day she was born was her first, when she turned one it was her second, and so on! 🎂
    Nice story about your St. Patrick’s Day kittens!
    I wanted to go for the clovers, too!

  2. I love your choices for “Four,” Lisa!
    The violin brings back so many memories. My grandfather used to play the violin too. Or should I say, he tried????
    The absolute best part of this post is to hear the Entrepreneur is doing well. I am sure it is very difficult for you, though, and in so many ways that one who has not been through it, cannot begin to imagine.

    Stay strong, my friend, and be sure to take good care of you.

    Lisa, for as challenging as you found this, you did an awesome….and I mean AWESOME job with this photographs!!! Gosh, I love that first one of the trees, it’s beautiful! The kittens are adorable! The violin (and cello) are my favorite sounding instruments, so I really enjoyed that pic as well!

    Glad to hear that your husband is doing well. Yahooooooooo!

    Have a super Sunday, my friend!

  4. Awwwww!!!! That last picture of Twix is soooo sweet! She looks really happy. She looks adorable in that hat.

    And speaking of adorable… Bridget is a beautiful cat. Isn’t it crazy comparing her adult picture to her kitten picture? “They grow up so fast.” 🙂

  5. Great take on this theme! Well done all around. And happy birthday to Twix! It’s fun as this challenge grows, we get to see some other people grow at the same time. Well done!
