Q = Quirky

According to Dictionary.com

Quirk = A peculiarity of action, behavior, or personality; mannerism.

Quirky = Having or full of quirks!

I think this describes me pretty well. If you don’t figure this out by meeting me or possibly reading my blog…you could figure it out by visiting my backyard. When Tina and I shared our first Christmas we realized how well our oddness matched. We both had the same Christmas flamingo!

Today I’d like to share some of my quirky yard art.

The A – Z Challenge will run through April. Each day is a different letter and a different photo…I hope you all enjoy!

The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Twist – The Twisted Man

The Twisted Man

I will admit I struggled with this one a bit. I kept imagining a twisted tree and for that reason I guess my eyes were closed to other ideas. This morning as I drove my dog to the vet I saw this twisted man in front of a retail store. I did a few U-turns so I could look at him a little closer and snap some pictures of him. So here it is….my submission for the weekly photo challenge – Twist.

 

A Little Research….

On Monday I posted a picture of bicycles hanging in a tree for Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge Week 12. A comment from Janet at This, That and the Other Thing, sent me to Google to find out what I could about the tree and the person that decided bikes look good in trees.  So, if any of you are interested in the man that decorates trees with bikes, here is a link for you to follow! The article I’ve linked was written in 2012 and George Hilton was 94 years old at that time. I took the picture this past Friday (05/16/14) so I can only assume Mr. Hilton continues to dabble in yard art!
