Anne Frank Tree[edit]

A famous specimen of the horse-chestnut was the Anne Frank Tree in the centre of Amsterdam, which she mentioned in her diary and which survived until August 2010, when a heavy wind blew it over.[22][23] Eleven young specimens, sprouted from seeds from this tree, were transported to the United States. After a long quarantine in Indianapolis, each tree was shipped off to a new home at a notable museum or institution in the United States, such as the 9/11 Memorial Park, Central H.S. in Little Rock, and two Holocaust Centers. One of them was planted outdoors in March 2013 in front of the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, where they were originally quarantined. [3]

Goodbye, straight lines. Hello, curves.

This week, share your take on “rounded.” it’s a broad theme, so I look forward to your personal interpretations, whether you choose to focus on a curving street, limbs caught mid-way through a dance, a bowl of fruit (think of all the round shapes!), or any other object, landscape, or texture that fits within your definition of the theme. As always, less-literal takes are equally welcome.

Layered: The Daily Post Photo Challange.


This week, let’s explore the interplay of texture and depth.

This week, share with us a layered image of your own. The topic is wide open, as long as you focus on the interplay of depth, density, and texture (or just choose one of these elements if you’d like). Strata of clouds, a shirt collar peeking through a sweater, a cross-section of an onion: you can keep your interpretation as literal or as figurative as you wish.

Waiting: The Daily Post Photo Challange


Waiting for the rain to lift so that the Spring Festival in Upper Hutt could be dry this year. https://www.eventfinda.co.nz/2017/upper-hutt-spring-festival/wellington-region

It did not happen. Year after year we got rain and cold winds. Waiting for better weather did not help.

I had a Soroptimist business meeting 10 am Saturday morning. I took the photo from the window where we were sitting in the lounge. I thought that everybody was waiting for the sky to clear. It never did.

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.

If you’re gonna let me down, let me down gently
Don’t pretend that you don’t want me
Our love ain’t water under the bridge
If you’re gonna let me down, let me down gently
Don’t pretend that you don’t want me
Our love ain’t water under the bridge
Say that our love ain’t water under the bridge

Water Under the Bridge
