#Lens-Artist 112 Worth a Thousand Words

#LensArtist Challenge 112

Anne-Christine has picked several words to inspire us to share our photos. My pictures come from this week and trips from long, long ago.


Nutter Butter has known from kittyhood how to relax anywhere.

Precarious position or not, Nutters is comfortable



From May until the weather cools down strawberry plants forget about their obligation to produce berries and shoot out runners instead.


The runners create a different problem. Weeding.

This weed entangles itself into the roots of the new plants, making them impossible to remove without disturbing the new strawberry plants.


The strawberries worked for both tangled and crowded, but since I was organizing my old pictures, chose to include my 1988 trip to Italy. This was my first exposure to crowded. Even Los Angeles seemed empty compared to the crowds we experienced walking in Europe.


Nothing beats children to illustrate the word exuberant. Some of them are more exuberant than others especially if they see a camera.

Exuberance does get the looks.

Tim hides his exuberance well, but look at his shoulders. He is excited and up to something.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s #Lens-Artist’s challenge.

Next week’s challenge will be hosted by: Rusha Sams of Oh The Places We See

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. For thirty-five years, I lived in the most beautiful area in Central Valley of California in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains minutes from the Sequoia National Park. As a child I moved from Indiana to Oregon. With my first husband I moved from Oregon to Colorado to California. Every time we moved, it hurt so much to leave friends. I never wanted to move again. After Mark passed, I married again. I told Vince that I could never budge from my roots in California. He said he loved the high desert. I don't think he ever thought he would realize his dream. In November, 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.

  1. Excellent choices – of course! I do love Nutters…very much. Surely you made the most of strawberry plants too, and so true what you said about children and exubearance. You proved that in the best of ways – Thank you for taking the time to participate!

  2. Terrific choices Marsha – your little Nutter is adorably sweet and definitely seems to have mastered comfortable. And oh my, the crowd in Europe! The only thing I’ve ever seen like that was during our visit to Cinque Terra. And it was blazing hot that day too. Not my idea of a good time! Thanks for joining us this week!

    1. My pleasure, Tina. Thanks for the comments. I’ve never been to Cinque Terra. I decided to get off the Underground once in London and walk the distance of one stop, thinking it would be sooooo much faster. I was squeezed off the sidewalk by the sheer numbers of people and had to walk in the street and dodge cars, busses, and pedestrians. My mistake! 🙂


    1. Thank you so much, Becky. Sorry to be such a slow responder. We are moving in about four weeks, so between filling out forms, packing and fixing things, my blogging has slipped to the back burner.


Your babbling is music to my ears. Please leave a comment!
