CMMC October Letter Q or U

Another week for an eclectic mix of pictures in response to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge! The October letter of the week is a “Q” or an “U” somewhere in the word. I considered sharing only photos that could be loosely connected to an aquatic theme. But couldn’t resist a few letter “U” pics that are definitely not aquatic.

The first three pictures – aquatic, blue heron watching Canada Geese, and gulls – as well as the last picture – sunset – were are all taken at Big Creek State Park in the last month.

The bed tuft picture was taken at the Brooklyn Bedding mattress factory in Mesa, Arizona in May.

I found the bathtub in a sunflower field at Center Grove Orchard in September.

The sunflower bud was shot in July in the sunflower fields near Badger Creek State Park, Iowa.

The white buffalo was part of the “OrigamiintheGarden2” exhibit at Reiman Gardens, Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa.

Bright Square: Water Feature

You know winter has gone and warmer weather is officially here when the folk at Reiman Gardens turn on the pumps and fill the water features. Light and shadow through water make such interesting patterns.

Thank-you, Becky, for the April Bright Square Challenge. And thanks to all the bloggers who participated! I’ve enjoyed all the brightness.
