Today I’m participating in the A Word A Week Challenge. This week’s theme is “frame”.  I encourage you to click on each photo to see a larger view. If you like what you see, please subscribe to this blog to receive updates of the new photos I post, usually 3 to 5 times a week.

I recently took these two pictures while walking in a San Diego County park. They show the same tree branches arching over the path, but I took each picture from one side of the path. I think I like the first one better but I’ll let you chime in.

This is another walking trail in a different county park. I love how the leaning tree branches and tree trunks frame the downhill path.

I like the framing created by this wooden fence right on the edge on the walking path, especially when it’s lined with wildflowers.

Wisteria behaves like an invasive tree if you give the vine the space and the structure it needs to grow on. I loved photographing these beautiful wisteria blooms hanging from the wooden frame. Here are a few photos of wisteria flowers from further to closer.

Finally, here’s a mama panda bear who doesn’t mind being framed to pose for a picture.

  1. Love the fence with wildflowers and the close-up of the wisteria. But, seriously, anything with green leaves and blossoms would do the trick for me, right now, as we are waiting for this winter to move on and make way for spring!

    • I’m not sure about being to share a lot of natural green from here since we’re in the middle of a drought (even with all the rain we’ve been getting today). But in the well irrigated places, you can definitely find blooms this time of year. I hope your spring makes up for a long and cold winter.

    • Thank you! I understand wisteria is highly invasive so it could take over your garden in a few years. It’s still beautiful when it blooms though. It’s just too bad the blooms only last a few weeks.

I'd love to hear what you think about my photos. Please leave your comments below.
