This week, share with us the structure of something typically overlooked.

More info about the challenge:

STRUCTURE

3. a complex system considered from the point of view of the whole rather than of any single part: the structure of modern science. 4. anything composed of parts arranged together in some way; an organization.

One of the After School Care boys made this “structure”. It works with four batteries.

Without structure, we won’t see a flower.

Satisfaction: The Daily Post Photo Challenge


This week, share a photo of something that brings you satisfaction. It can be monumental, minor, or something in between.

Hop over to The Daily post and see more ideas on satisfaction.

Taking photos gives me a lot of satisfaction especially when the photos are special like the following ones:IMG_2964

Flowering Wisteria


I am very proud to announce that my Wisteria has got flowers this year!

I am living here since 2010. The poor Wisteria was cut down to the ground when I moved in. I did not cut it since 2010, and it became a better-grown climber. At the other side of my back fence, where it grows, are big waste bins. Every morning people from the workshops open the lids against the fence breaking off the new growth. There never were any flowers.

This year the climber gave me at least 20 strings of flowers.

 

It is hardy in USDA plant hardiness zones 5-9, and prefers moist soils. It is considered shade tolerant, but will flower only when exposed to partial or full sun. It will also flower only after passing from juvenile to adult stage, a transition that may take up to 20 years. It can live for over a hundred years.

Nostalgia. The daily Post. Photo Challenge.Nostalgies(Afrikaans)


Nostalgia

What kinds of experiences stir emotions for the past within you?

For this challenge, show us what nostalgia means to you — perhaps a moment or scene that makes you feel wistful, happy, sad, or somehow longing for the past. It might be with friends, family, or by yourself — anywhere, any time of year.

Sheep with lambs in a paddock.

Reminds me of spring time in years gone by, farming with goats while I was still a teenager.

Skape met lammers maak my nostalgies.  Dit herinner my  aan die jare van boerdery met melkbokke.

Springtime makes me nostalgic. All new life, blooms, bees, warmer weather. Just wonderful.
