I loved this sculpture I recently saw in Hingham Square.
Here’s a close-up: there are frogs on top of turtles on top of a rock.
How about a couple of natural photos? I wanted to get closer to this tree swallow perched on top of the fence post, but I was afraid it would fly away. In fact, a couple with a dog walked up behind me right after I took this shot and the inevitable happened. Whoosh…
I found the golden lichen on top of this grave marker quite striking.
I’d like to get away from Earth for awhile,
and then come back to it and begin over…
I’d like to go by climbing a birch tree,
and climb black branches up a snow-white trunk
Toward heaven, til the tree could bear no more,
But dipped its top and set me down again.

The week’s challenge topic is Monument. Here is a gallery of monument photos I have featured in the past, plus a couple of new ones.

This is a new challenge for me, but when I saw it, I knew I had something to post:
Wandering around an old graveyard yesterday and I couldn’t resist another take on the Weekly Photo Challenge.
The marble one had a “ghostly” look.
Yikes…this one looks like someone tried to break in or break out!
It’s been a long, cold winter in New England. Even though the calendar has proclaimed that the new season started weeks ago, we are just now on the threshold of spring. Opening Day at Fenway was yesterday (the Official start of spring in NE), and the crocuses are blooming.
The bright green sprouts of lilies are poking out of last year’s mulch.
The daffodils are just beginning to bud.
And yet there is still that one stubborn patch of dirty snow that won’t give up the ghost…
