CMMC July Word Ends with “K”

Bark (Japanese Red Pine)

It’s the July Word week for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge; this time it’s words that end with the letter “k“.

Rock with Sidewalk Chalk
Drawing Chalk
Pink & Black Quilt Block (x2)
Book Stack on Desk

The books in the book stack were selected with the challenge in mind: Folk, Steinbeck, Potok, Think, Monk, Frederick, Dusk, Black, Nick, Black (again), Gleick, Deepak, Peck, and Desk. I’m sure I could have found more books to add to the stack but decided to stick with what was on the shelves in the one room.

CMMC June Close-Up or Macro Photograph

One of my early thoughts for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge June Close-Up or Macro photo challenge was a picture I took of the bark on a palm tree. But it wasn’t as interesting as I remembered. So I set out this morning to photograph the bark on trees along my usual walking path. (No palm trees here in central Iowa!)

Leaves growing directly from the trunks of trees caught my attention on the way home.

The spider on the underside of the leaf in the next photo was serendipitous. (Don’t worry, Cee, it’s the only one with a bug in this week’s collection.)

Finally, one set of leaves in the sunlight shown from two different angles.
