30 Days of Photos IV - Day 29 - Circle

This is the same park where I found The Man With Two Hats for my photo on Day 18. It's near Dow's Lake and in the spring is full of gorgeous tulips from one end to the other.

But the tulips are long gone in the fall. Nevertheless the gardens are full of gorgeous flowers.

In the centre of the park is this circle garden.

Hey it's round.

I took the picture.

I met the prompt.

Now leaf me alone.

Don't walk around in circles like I did. Take a straight line over to Ziva's garden and see what everyone else planted today.

I find today's theme, circle, pointless.

Looks like a very peaceful setting.

That's a well rounded description of your park.
nonamedufus said…
You're right, in a roundabout way, I suppose.
nonamedufus said…
Aw, geez, everyone's a comedian now. Nice one, Babs.

Evil Twin told me to sing "Ring around the Tulips." Um...that doesn't sound quite right. :)

That is one pretty garden!
If I ever left my house, I'd probably be able to find better photos for these prompts. This one is lovely... and fits. Not #teamlame at all!

One more post and we leaf you alone. Nice Circle.
Actually I think this is very unique and a great take on circle!
Cheryl said…
You're such a goof. It's a beautiful photo and wonderful for this prompt.
nonamedufus said…
No that doesn't sound exactly right, Reffie.
nonamedufus said…
Aw, and I wanted to hang with the lame kids.
nonamedufus said…
The root of the problem is this challenge is 30 days.
nonamedufus said…
Well, thank you, Katherine. The flowers weren't in full bloom but there was still come colour to be had.
nonamedufus said…
I work hard at it. It doesn't come naturally you know.

I feel like we're going around the bend. Nice park and nice shot.
nonamedufus said…
With this prompt today I feel like I'm running round in circles.
Lauren said…
That is a beautiful garden and it is a circle. A win, win. Actually, I'm green with envy.
nonamedufus said…
After 29 days a lot of us have gone round the bend, Mike.
nonamedufus said…
Everyone's so punny today. What's going on?
Ziva said…
Such a pretty park. When are you going to invite me over for a picnic?
nonamedufus said…
We are blessed in the Ottawa region with greenbelt areas, bike paths, canals, and gorgeous gardens. It really is a beautiful area.

Oh, and you can stop in for a picnic any time. You have an open invitation.

That is a really beautiful photograph! Well done, John!

PS: I’m sorry I’m so late to comment – I missed the last 2 days of the challenge because I’ve been having a terrible flare up. But I am trying my best to catch up with all of the posts I’ve missed!
nonamedufus said…
Thanks, Meleah. I hope you're feeling better. You're quite the trooper.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
