It’s great to have Jake back! And he returns with a timely topic: Christmas Tree.

I’m living in a new small space this year with no room for my usual big tree, so I have a tabletop one. With my ornament collection in storage, I didn’t know what I was going to use to decorate it. I considered decorating it completely with “found” ornaments like these:

(Read about my “found” Christmas Tree here.) But I have a birthday in December, and a thoughtful friend gave me some ornaments. So this is my Christmas Tree this year…festive enough!

Jake’s Topic this week is Bridge. Most of the time when we think of bridges, I think we all picture BIG bridges: icons like the Golden Gate Bridge. So I decided to show that sometimes bridges can be small (and cute).

Jake’s topic this Sunday is Window.

There’s nothing like a sunny, open window: indoor cat heaven.

I’ve been absent from Jake’s Challenge the last couple of weeks, but I’m back! His topic this week is Tourist Attraction…what a great topic, Jake!

Last fall my cousin and her daughter came to visit from Colorado. They were only in Massachusetts a couple of days, but we managed to hit a couple of the big tourist attractions for my area: Plymouth (where the Pilgrims landed) and Quincy (birthplace of two U.S. Presidents).

We saw the Mayflower II, but we didn’t have time to go on the ship. It is a replica, as the original ship has been gone a long time!

On the day they left, we visited President John Adams home, Peacefield. President John Quincy Adams was born there and built a library on the grounds after his father had died. The library houses the bible made famous in the movie, “Amistad.”  It was stolen years ago and recovered in a local gym locker!

Jake’s Topic this week is Entrance.

I had a perfect one…but I used it recently for Cee’s Photo Challenge (click here to see it).

So…I guess I need to come up with something else.

One of my favorite places to go is Tower Hill Botanical Gardens. It takes me over an hour to drive there, but I try to go a couple of times a year. If you want to see how beautiful it is…click on my link. They have lovely galleries of the place on their web site.

Here is a photo my husband took of me getting ready to enter my “world of wonder.”

This is how it looked to me…going from the shadow into the light and colors!

Jake’s Topic this week is a photo of a Bay. I would have to travel a bit from where I live to get a new digital picture of a bay, and I have no gas in my car. 😦

So I went to the shoebox instead. In 1984, my friend Julie and I visited New Brunswick and Nova Scotia in Canada. Between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick is the Bay of Fundy, where it is said they have the highest tidal range in the world!

This photo was taken with my old manual Pentax K1000 in New Brunswick at low tide.

Notice the trees at the top of the formation. They appear to be on little islands at high tide. I took the second photo to provide a sense of scale showing how high these formations are. That’s my friend Julie taking a picture.

Jake’s Topic this week is Captivating.

My local feed and grain store has several bunnies that live at the store. They are all in open-topped cages or pens so people can pet them. They are so soft!

The children who come in are captivated by the bunnies, especially by one that is allowed to roam the store.
