Another meander down my driveway for today's #wednesdaywalk challenge

in wednesdaywalk •  5 months ago


Happy Fourth of July!

On April 18th, 2018 I discovered a new Steemit challenge put forth by @tattoodjay called the Wednesday Walk Challenge. Be sure to check out his guidelines on his latest post (Wednesday Walk in Long Island City) and join in the fun!

Back then, I decided to start off by taking a simple walk down our driveway (okay, actually there's nothing simple about our driveway - it's so long, windy, and steep that we've had delivery people refuse to deliver!). A couple weeks afterwards, I did a different walk (took pictures of all the blooms around our yard). Then a month later, I did a follow-up post, to compare how much had changed (aka, turned green with the arrival of Spring), and I planned to do one during the last week of June as well. However, given that today is the Fourth of July... LOL!

So here is another meander, a bit longer than a month since my last. I've cut down the number of shots, since I'm sharing three (April, May, and today) for each location, and I don't want to break the interwebz.

Spot 1


 
  As I've done a few times before, here's another meander down my driveway for today's #wednesdaywalk challenge
April 18th 2018 - Standing just off the front porch, looking down the driveway.
 
  Another meander down my driveway
May 23rd - so green!
 
 
July 4th - not quite as green, thanks to the ridiculous heat (90sF/30sC for the past 6 days)
 
 

Spot 2


 
 
April 18th - future flowers
 
 
May 23rd - The Daylilies and Black-eyed Susans haven't blossomed yet, but I'm thinking soon...
 
 
July 4th - The Daylilies and Black-eyed Susans are in full bloom!

 
 

Spot 3


 
 
April 18th - Speaking of future growing things, somewhere in this area, a
Jack-in-the-pulpit should be popping up soon-ish
 
 
May 23rd - And here he is! This year, there are three little ones as well.
 
 
July 4th - now the Jack-in-the-pulpit has gone to seed.
 
 

Spot 4


 
 
April 18th - The view from the bottom of the driveway.

Spot 5


 
 
April 18th - The sky over the house

Happy walking!

The photos are amazing, @traciyork! :) The comparisons of photos of the same spot at different month is an epic idea! Love to see the changes you captured!

·

Thanks so much, @happycrazycon! I kinda fell into the idea, and I'm so glad everyone likes it!

So beautiful @traciyork! It's great to see the difference that a few weeks make :)

·

Thanks so much, @lynncoyle1! It's amazing to see how much things change! 😊

·
·

I have some dead plants to show how a month of heat works here :) But also some that have doubled in size.

·
·
·

LOL! I can imagine (and after a week of it, I only want to imagine what a month would be like)! It's so amazing when nature thrives in places you think it couldn't.

I have one rubber plant (I think) that rarely gets watered and is growing like mad. My hydrangea is dead (god rest her pretty soul), but the hibiscus is loving the heat. Another little totally dry twig I have that started as a miniature tree of sorts I leave out there to remind me that I've got nothing on Mother Nature :)

·
·
·
·
·

You've definitely got a greener thumb than me! And that reminder twig is a wicked awesome idea. 😊

Glad you liked my "twig" momento @traciyork 😅

I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO coming to stay at your place!!!!! We are going to light bonfires and dance around the fire in thongs with @zord189 hehehehehehehehe :D

·

I would love the view and would probably be throwing slabs of pork meat into the bonfire.

·
·

Totally works for me, @zord189! 😊

·

@jaynie come here soon while it is still warm!

·
·

@rwedegis, I don't think warm is a warm enough word for what it is here! LOL!

·
·
·

Today was nice!

·
·
·
·

And tonight is like a gorgeous fall night. Hopefully there won't be snow tomorrow... LOL!

·

Sounds like a plan! I'll make a run to the packie and stock up - dancing around bonfires is thirsty work!

Wow that's really cool! I am amazed at how you were able to get shots of the same spots for 3 months! I might be able to remember where one was but you had like a zillion! I am in awe!!!

·

LOL! Just wait until you see the driveway in person, Roger - it's pretty easy to remember where each spot was. Plus, I had the old post on my phone to jog my memory. 😊

·
·

It was a great job anyway!

·
·
·

What a great series of shots. I might well also gatecrash with @jaynie and @zord189. Lovely place.

·

You know u gotta dance around the bonfire in thongs right? as per @jaynie mentioned. :D

·
·

Damn right!!! lol

·
·
·

I'll have the bonfires at the ready, @fionasfavourites and @zord189! Good thing our landlords are wicked cool - in fact, they might hop on over and join us! LOL!

·
·
·
·

Ha! Look forward to that, @traciyork after the last few days, seems like all of us need that, right @jaynie and @zord189?

·
·
·
·
·

Most definitely, @fionasfavourites - I think a driveway dance party is totally needed! And good news - I saw my landlady yesterday and she said it was okay (at least I think that's what she said - it was hard to tell since she was laughing so hard... 😂)

So let's get this party started!

Oh wow! On my way, @traciyork!

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Coolness, @fionasfavourites! I'll have a glass of wine ready and waiting for you! 😊

I love this idea, Traci! I may have to copy that! :)

·

That would be wicked cool, Denise! 😊

what a cool idea the same spots at different times love this idea and post

thanks so much for joining Wednesday walk

tip!

·

Thank you in return, @tattoodjay for an awesome hash tag and the tip - much appreciated!

This was awesome! I like seeing the same location on different dates. You're very good at capturing the essence of God's creation. That Jack-in-the-Pulpit didn't stay long, did he?

#steemitbloggers

·

Nope, he does a quick sermon then disappears until next year, @blockurator! And thank you so much! 😊

Wow, loved those pictures...
And the patience to wait through... I really liked ... ok I was going to pick a couple but I liked them all :)

·

Aww, thanks so much @kaerpediem! 😊

Wonderful nature you have there @traciyork!!!

·

We're totally spoiled by nature where we live, @roselifecoach! And I love it! 😊

·
·

Yes, so much so some times took it for granted...

It's always nice to see the progress of things and seeing nature grow and changes through the time are just priceless!

·

Thank you, @joelai! I'm so glad you enjoyed it, and I appreciate your kind words! 😊

·
·

My pleasure, thanks for sharing with us too!

great walk...thanks for taking use with you

·

Thanks in return for coming along, @photobe! 😊

Oh that is really cool getting to see each spot on the different dates :) The jack-in-the-pulpit is cool! I have never seen one of those. Cheers - Carl

·

Thank you, @carlgnash! I hadn't seen one either before moving here, and our landlady pointed out where it usually grows. Much appreciate you stopping by! 😊
