The Daily Post Prompt: Leaf

Here is my entry for The Daily Post Prompt with the topic of Leaf.

I had a free blog for a month or so before this one. When I switched to a paid site the old one was deleted. Some of you might remember this leaf from it. I was so happy with it!

An Ode to Beer

This is my entry for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter E – Needs to have two E’s in the topic word.

BEER:

Steam Whistle is a Canadian beer and sells some pretty cool products to go along with it:

There are many Craft Breweries popping up all over. Beer is popular in Canada. Remember Bob and Doug McKenzie? I loved those guys. These are some of the ones Rebel Guy enjoys:

After a few of them, this is where you will probably find him.  🙂

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Stones

My entry in response to Week 75 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge:

These stones are being laid for a wall. They were eventually filled with small trees and flowers. Did I forget to mention a stone fireplace, pit, and all around a salt water pool? Lucky people!

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge – Fungi.

My entry for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge – Fungi.

A few months ago Rebel Mom said something stunk on the one side of our house. We thought maybe something must have died, something did, only it was a tree stump.

Right beside it was what looked like animal legs with hooves coming out of the ground and these egg like blobs. The smell coming off it was bad…like rotted animal. The flies loved it, as you can see:

After doing a quick search I found out what it was. A Stinkhorn, which is in the the same family  as puffballs and earthstars. They start out as the white egg shapes that you see in the pictures, usually around damp or rotting materials, which would be the old tree stump. The majority of this fungi will still be under the ground. I wasn’t about to start digging! If there is water around, the egg will turn into the stinkhorn mushroom.

CEE’S JUST A FUN CHALLENGE – HIDDEN

My entry for Cee’s Just a Fun Challenge: Hidden

This is my entry (Rebel Guy). And it is my first challenge that I have participated in.

I was wandering my cucumber garden and spotted something big and dark hiding in a flower.

At first had no idea what it was. I honestly thought something was wrong with that flower. Peek A Boo. It ended up giving me a few striking poses 🙂
