Photo Challenges – The Challenge of One/A Beachy Day

These photos of ‘one’ are part of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. The fish above is the one that didn’t get away. It was the prettiest catch of the day. We catch and release so he/she is still out there in the Delaware Bay waters.

While we were enjoying the beautiful day a reminder of those who serve our country graced the sky; a large military plane from Dover Air Force Base flew over the beach. I think it is called a Galaxy plane.

This beautiful patriotic display of flags was flying close to the beach we were fishing on.

One flag was a reminder that there are still many who are MIA and possibly POW’s. These men and women who have disappeared or been imprisoned while serving our country still need our prayers.

I love the perseverance of this one plant growing in the midst of a large swathe of sand.

One oyster perfectly mirrored the blue of the sky above it.

One bird and birdhouse was the catalyst to an encounter I would rather not have experienced, but that is Part II of this post, and hopefully I can put it in the proper perspective tomorrow.

Photo Challenge – Color Your World: Asparagus

IMG_0157 (2)

I have a lot of greens in my home. Green, especially a glowing yellow-green, is one of my favorite colors. These are my photo choices for the Color Your World Photo Challenge: Asparagus.

IMG_0160 (2)

I love growing philodendron sprigs in ceramic pots. Philodendron easily roots in water. The plant and pot have shades of asparagus in their greens.

IMG_0159 (2)

The Jamestown glass from historic Jamestown, Virginia, was given to my mother as a gift for my birth many decades ago. One of the asparagus green vases holds a piece of a Photinia shrub. The underside of the Photinia leaves have the green glow of fresh asparagus.

Photinia is a wonderful bush for your garden. The foliage is outstanding in vased floral arrangements.

I enjoyed collecting these greens for the Color Your World Challenge.

Photo Challenge – The Last of the Vanes

Today I’m featuring a few of the weather vanes I have posted on #Weather Vane Wednesday. This will be my last weather vane post. I thank everyone who took part in the challenge. I enjoyed searching for weather vanes, but I think I have found almost everything in my area, and that means it’s time to end the challenge.

Thanks to everyone who has taken part. Here’s a link to last week’s entry:

Photo Challenge – Weather Vane Wednesday/North East, Maryland

This Indian Weather Vane with his bow is on top of the Old Mill Plaza in North East, Maryland. 

North East is a great small town near the Chesapeake Bay and the Elk Neck River. It is just minutes away from Elk Neck State Park and the Turkey Point Lighthouse.

Take a quick walk with me to Turkey Point Lighthouse.

Photo Challenge & Postcards – Pebbly Beach

For this week’s post I’m back to Block Island, RI. I believe this anchor, photographed from Pebbly Beach, is a wind vane of sorts.

Pebbly Beach was one of our favorite spots to visit on Block Island when we stayed in the Sea Breeze Inn.

Visitors to Block Island have enjoyed the Pebbly Beach for over 100 years.

This postcard is postmarked August 29, 1909, almost 110 years in the past. Here’s an easier to read view of what I think Kate wrote to Willie on that long ago day.

Block Island R.I. Aug 28/09
This is how it looks from
the beach in front of the
cottage. From the cottage
we can see over the
point-Tell Annie I’d
rather have ANY trip
than HERS. No more les-
sons at present. I am
where they can’t reach
me – Kate E. Post

I’m not sure of two words, these I printed in capitals. There seems to be some unspoken drama in this post. I wonder what Kate meant about not being reached??? Even today to visit Block Island requires a boat or plane ride. The mystery is a century old. I love old postcards with messages.

Photo Challenge – Still Looking Up

Day trips, and even jaunts around local towns, find me looking up for vanes. This week I found a beautiful weather vane in the seaside town of Ocean City, NJ. After searching for weather vanes for ten months, I’m fairly certain there are more to be found in beach areas than in any other area.

I think this ‘fishy’ weather vane depicts a tuna. It is the largest in size I have found thus far.

Photo Challenge – Block Island Weather Vane

Today’s weather vane is an oldie, but definitely a good memory for me. This is early morning on Block Island, Rhode Island, our car in line, my husband waiting to pull it onto the ferry for the ride back to Point Judith. I love the foggy atmosphere. So often, in early morning, when we left the island, the fog would be thick and mysterious. On top of the small house selling tickets is what appears to be some type of weather vane. It surprises me to look at my hundreds of photos of our vacations on Block Island and not find any vanes. Once again, I’m reminded that often you don’t see what you aren’t looking for at the moment.

Photo Challenge – Weather Vanes March 27th

It’s a proven fact, unless you’re looking for an item, you often walk by unaware of its presence. I never noticed this weather vane during past visits to Longwood Gardens. I was glad to find it. I want to let the Wednesday Weather Vane challenge run for a full year and that means through June. I’m running out of sources for vanes.

The terrace the gazebo is built on provides a spectacular view of the fountains and the conservatory.

Inside the Exhibition Hall Himalayan Blue Poppies bordered the outer wall. Poppies are spectacular in color and form, but unfortunately, when we visited most of the blooms were turned away from the walkway and faced the sunshine beaming through the windows.

This beauty cooperated and I was able to get a wonderful photograph. It is my contribution to Cee’s Flower of the Day. I’m contemplating making an attempt at painting a blue poppy again, but I know from experience, that their heavenly shade of blue is hard to capture.

Thanks to these bloggers for taking part in last week’s challenge.

Photo Challenges – South Jersey Spring has Sprung

On occasion, I enjoy taking part in Restless Jo’s Monday Walks. Warm weather is perfect for a springtime stroll in the small woods behind my neighborhood. There isn’t much budding yet, but I still found plenty of God’s art to admire.

Circular patterned stumps were a good choice for Ryan Photography’s Photo of the Week. I enjoy aged wood and stumps; gnarly pieces of branches adorned with moss give my spirit a lift.

I came upon a hollowed out portion of a tree. “That’s where the dolls come to get a drink after everyone’s sleeping.” I heard the voice of my beloved grandmother as if she stood beside me. She told the best stories about dolls and woodland animals and their naughty shenanigans when children and their parents slept. At that moment the water inside the hollow really did seem magical as it took me back in time, oh, about fifty years.

Of course, the rest of my walk was enchanted with lovely memories. I found fairy wishes bursting out of a pod and released them into the air. I thought my camera didn’t capture their image, but when I downloaded them, I could just see the outline of one wish as it flew through the air. Can you see it against the sky? A fairy wish floating through the air is also something that lifts my mood.

I don’t know if Spring has completely sprung but the lichen were thriving in the warmer temperatures.

Once again, I heard my grandmother’s voice telling a story, “The dolls used the lichen as a ladder and climbed all the way to the top of the tree, but they couldn’t get back down again! ‘Oh no!’ cried the dolls, ‘What are we going to do?'” How rich my life remains because she helped my imagination come alive. I hope I can do the same for my grandchildren.

Photo Challenge – Crabby

Wow! I was very crabby last week when I couldn’t take a photo of this weather vane? The next time I drove in the same direction I remembered my camera and took a photo of Bobby Chez Famous Jumbo Lump Crabcakes. Oh my! While I was there I bought two of their crab cakes to heat up for dinner; they were spectacular. The key to good crab cakes is to mix in as few ingredients as possible and let the jumbo lump crab have the starring role. I am delighted that I live in an area where fresh crab is readily available.

Photo Challenge – Weather Vane Wednesday/Angelic Skies

I found two beautiful angelic weather vanes in a nearby town for this week’s weather vane challenge. They are atop roofs in Wenonah, New Jersey. One was a very well-dressed angel blowing a trumpet. The other a naked cherub who looked a little cold to me in February’s stiff breeze.

A nearby church also had a weather vane on its steeple.

It was knocked askew and didn’t look particularly stable to me.

Perhaps neighborhood vultures roosted on the vane, loosening the apparatus that held it in place. There were once so many vultures in Wenonah during the wintertime the town held festivals with vultures as the theme. I read today the festival is no more due to the vultures leaving…perhaps they are making a comeback this year.

Photo Challenge – Weather Vanes February 20

At times I find the most ornate weather vanes on unexpected buildings…such as this beauty on top of the Harrison House Diner in Mullica Hill, New Jersey. The diner, at the intersection of Routes 45 and 322, is only a stone’s throw away from the local Amish Market. The market is another amazing place to find food of all kinds. Have you ever had a homemade Raspberry Cream Donut? Oh my!

Photo Challenges – Nature with a touch of Man

“Make the best use of what is in your power, and take the rest as it happens.” ~Epictetus

On our recent winter nature walk we came upon this arch crafted by some creative tree trimmers. I love the way they fashioned the arch to fit back into the surface of the smooth tree trunk.

“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” ~Arthur Ashe

Photo Challenge – The Yellow Garage Antiques Shop

This fish weather vane was my favorite.

A treasure trove of unique weather vanes awaited me in The Yellow Garage Antiques shop this week. Yes, the exterior is yellow, and yes, it was a garage/bus terminal built in 1922. It was renovated in 1995 and is home to 35 antique dealers. Is it amazing inside? Yes. Was it filled with unique merchandise? Yes. Were there antique weather vanes? Yes, not only weather vanes but whirlygigs and other wind dependent structures too.

If you are ever in southern New Jersey, The Yellow Garage is easy to find on Main Street in Mullica Hill.

Photo Challenge – Kennett Square/Weather Vane Wednesday

I spotted this cat weather vane across the street from the Encore Consignment Shop in Kennett Square, Pa. The vane appropriately sits atop a veterinary office. I didn’t go into the vet’s office, but I did browse a bit in the Encore Consignment shop.

The shop is a few miles away from Longwood Gardens and the Brandywine River Museum.

There are many Wyeth family paintings displayed in the Museum, and we even saw a signed print of one of Andrew Wyeth’s Helga paintings in the Encore shop.

I suppose in reality, the shop is just an upscale thrift store. It certainly has a charm missing in most Goodwill or Salvation Army centers I’ve visited, but then the bargains aren’t as good either. All proceeds from the shop benefit Chester County Hospital.

Photo Challenge & People – My Own Backyard

First we had rain, heavy rain, then we had cold, bitter cold; it hasn’t been a week conducive to driving around looking for new weather vanes. I’m glad to say in all this bad weather I was able to stand in my own backyard and take a photo of a weather vane. My neighbor’s vane is common to our development. Many of the houses have this same vane and I’ve used similar vanes in past challenges. Sometimes exactly what you need is right outside your door.

“If I ever go looking for my heart’s desire again, I won’t look any further than my own back yard. Because if it isn’t there, I never really lost it to begin with.” ~ L. Frank Baum

Do you recognize the name of the author of the quote? L. Frank Baum wrote The Wizard of Oz. Here are a few facts you might not know about Mr. Baum:
The L. stand for Lyman.
He loved the theater and wanted to be an actor.
He started writing children’s books in his 40’s.
He named Oz after a file cabinet drawer marked O – Z.
Dorothy Gale was named after a niece who died.

Photo Challenge – Weather Vane Wednesday/How Far Will You Go?

How far will you drive for a favorite food or snack? We’ve driven sixty miles, give or take a mile or two, to get our favorite Ocean City Boardwalk pizza at Manco and Manco’s. If you’re ever in the area check out this delicious pizza.

Ocean City is a good source to find both weather vanes and lightning rods. I’m wondering if weather vanes double as lightning rods on some of the three-story condos. I’ve found seashore towns to be the best source of many weather vanes in one place. The first vane is a heron, the second two dolphins. I’ve always loved dolphins; I grew up in the era of Flipper on television. I think this vane will be one of my top ten favorites.

Antique lightning rods and weather vanes are considered decorative collectibles.

Photo Challenge – Weather Vane Wednesday & Sea-Beans

I spotted the weather vane as we drove over the bridge into Cape May. We were there for a winter getaway. The weather never cooperated…nothing but cloudy sky. Bah! Oh well, we told ourselves, at least the indoor pool will be warm. Bah! The heater in the pool was broken, the water about as cold as the ocean water. I swam one lap in that cold water and felt like a Viking conqueror. It’s been eternally dreary here this past year. We had over 140 days with precipitation, and that doesn’t even include the days that were overcast and grey.

We walked the beach anyway, for only a few minutes though, my husband was one of the unlucky ones who came down with a terrible case of cold/flu that lasted for weeks. In NC, my sister told me, they call this sickness, “The Crud.” Someone even invented a medicine to combat it called Carolina Crud Crusher.

Even though our beach walk was short I found a pod, a sea-bean pod. Determined to make the best of the day, I took that bean pod home, sure it must have followed the gulf stream from the tropics to the beach of Cape May. (It might have, but it is also possible it is a pod from a local tree.) I consider all beach drift a gift from the sea. A love of natural beach detritus will probably never die in me. I put the pod in the pocket of my winter coat and took it home. This past week I added some unknown seeds found on the edges of bay waters to my sea bean cache.

I nicked the edges of half the seeds in the pod and have them soaking in water with a discarded rotisserie chicken container at the ready, filled with potting soil, a stand-in for a greenhouse. I will plant them tomorrow after their overnight soak. I can’t wait to see if they will grow.

Photo Challenge – Weathervane Wednesday/Statues Galore!

On New Year’s Day we took a drive to the Delaware Bay and went through the town of Deerfield, New Jersey on the way home. Deerfield is a small country community, but it is home to a large antique store called Jantiques. Jantiques is three story warehouse and claims to have the widest selection of imported furniture and garden decor in the state.

We didn’t go into the warehouse this time, instead we took a few moments to just gaze at the oddities and life-size statues in the garden lot. Amazing! I was also able to spot two decent rooster weather vanes, although you have to study the photo to pick them out in the midst of the surrounding bric-a-brac.

Photo Challenge – Village Weather Vane

My weather vanes this week are a bit of a departure from the normal. They are miniature and on my mantel atop one of the houses in my Christmas Village.

The village houses, shops, church and lighthouse were first displayed at my parent’s home. When they moved a few year’s ago they didn’t have enough room for all the Christmas decor and I was the lucky recipient of the village.

I love this photograph. It clearly shows the two weather vanes on the ironworks shop. This Christmas village brings me much joy every holiday. Thanks Mom!
