MY NEIGHBORHOOD: Weekly Photo Challenge, Any Way You Want!

Yeah, it’s great to have mobile phones that double as cameras. Or iPads that double as cameras. It’s also great to have cameras, PERIOD. It’s the photos that count, isn’t it?

So here’s another photo of “my neighborhood,” stretching that to mean the greenhouses at two local colleges that brighten up our world when it’s dull and dreary, rainy or snowy. Here’s a subtle capture of something that I almost missed, and a poem it reminded me of:

Flower in a Crannied Wall

Flower in the Crannied Wall

Flower in the crannied wall, 

I pluck you out of the crannies, 

I hold you here, root and all, in my hand, 

Little flower—but if I could understand 

What you are, root and all, all in all, 

I should know what God and man is.

Alfred, Lord Tennyson


As for what device I took it with, why, it’s Nunya!

(And what’s Nunya? Nunya business! 😉

Now I know this doesn’t look like it, but actually the photo was taken INSIDE the greenhouse at Mount Holyoke’s Spring Bulb Show. For a a little more conventional look at the show, whiz over to sister blog Touch2Touch.

    The shadow and bright sunlight sure enhance the pic. I like this a lot. 🙂

  2. I love how, in a wee bit of soil, something grows and thrives.

    Yes, technology should enable and support living – not the other way around. 🙂 Cool pic!

  4. Once again, a lovely pairing of photo and (where DO you find them) poems! Thanks!

    Sort of like the quantity of a hazel nut… lovely juxtaposition of poem and plant!
