  1. These are brilliant Bless. I'm impressed that you were able to get 'wildlife' without leaving home! All of the tree bark photos are great but the eucalyptus is my favourite.

    Many thanks for joining in. xx

    1. Thank you, Eileen. The raccoons showed up just at the right time, didn't they? :D I'm having fun participating; thank you for hosting the WPSH.

  2. Lovely. You have an eye for detail, and things that most of us miss. I especially love mr racoon xxxx

    1. Thank you, Ratnamurti! What a lovely thing to say! :) Yes, I was lucky to have a visit from the raccoons (although they dug up some of my flower bulbs!)
      By the way, I have been unable to comment on your blog until today! I got the same error message I've been getting when I tried earlier, but, on the second attempt, I was able to comment!

  3. Your photos are great Bless, I do like the shadows and your wildlife photos and your red rose is beautiful. It's a fun challenge for sure and I'm glad I decided to join in :)

    1. Thank you, Eileen. I am so glad that you decided to join in, too, and I really liked the photos you posted, especially the clock faces! :)

  4. I love the lattice shadow. Tree bark is always fascinating, I find, and of course those raccoon photos are priceless! Your winter sun is just how it was here yesterday. It's good to be able to see it even if it is through clouds.

    1. Thank you, Bushlady. I'm pleased with how the lattice shadow turned out. I, too, find the different types of tree bark to be interesting. As soon as I saw that sun trying to shine through the clouds, I knew I had to take a photo for the challenge! We had a lovely sunny day, today. :)

  5. Fun! I always enjoy these posts. I like the lattice shadows and the Winter sun. And the clean sliding glass door! lol It looks pristine. :)
    But I do not like the raccoons. No - that would scare me!
    Another good round of photos from you.

    1. Thank you, Debra. I must admit that I was glad that there was a door between the raccoons and me! I was once out watering the front garden, a few years ago, when one of them climbed down neighbor T's tree! I was not sure what to do, but, it saw me and ran to the back garden!

  6. What a great start to the WPSH. Amazing variety of tree bark.

    1. Thank you, Mary-Lou. Yes, each tree seems to have a different tree bark; if I had to choose one, I'd go with the eucalyptus, I think. :)

  7. I know they can be a menace but racoons are just so cute! Xx
