At 08:30, shortly after Sylvia left for work, I found myself facing the monster bushes that have been creeping steadily across my back yard for at least the last five years. (It was five years ago when we moved here, and those bushes were a serious presence even then.)
Armed with a set of manual hedge clippers, a manual tree pruner, and a small hand saw, I went to work.
Three hours later I had cleared away those bushes that were pushing up against and in some places through my neighbor’s wooden privacy fence. Now a path is clear (more or less) back to my fence bordering the alley.
Nearly Noon at the time of this second picture, our South Texas summer day was heating up nicely. I decided it was time to call a halt to the yard work and move indoors.
There were four of us Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus present at today’s Memorial Day Celebration held at the National Cemetery on Fort Sam Houston. We slipped behind the big stage for this picture as the Program ended.
This is a wedding party photo from the 1940s featuring my Dad and his parents, and my Mom and her parents.
This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge is “Lines.” And as I look through the window of my home office, the open blinds form the lines that I look through.
The Weekly Photo Challenge is assigned every Wednesday. I’ve enjoyed playing this photography project in the past and I’ll start doing it again. Some weeks are harder to play than this one. 🙂
