Greenthumb's Scavenger Hunt

1. Woven

Scavenger hunts are so much fun! Boy do they ever make me think hard, but I do enjoy the challenge. Yep, twelve photos but this scavenger hunt happens only once a month. I am linking to Greenthumb, Saturday Critters and Shadow Shot 2 at the end of this post.

2.  Repeating

It's pretty the way the gingerbread trim repeats from post to post on this homes front porch.

3. Greedy

One sunflower seed was not enough for this woodpecker. I can't remember if it actually picked up more than two before it flew away, though.

4. Flowers

This obedient plant was blooming in my garden not so long ago. (sigh)

5. Curly

This was on the power lines. My husband told me what it was for but alas I cannot remember! I'm sure he'll tell me when he sees this post...but you can tell me too, if you know.

6. Adventures

This could have been #3 greedy. These guys can pack a LOT of treats in their cheeks. But these two chipmunks were also on a foraging adventure...and brave to walk up to a human hand even if it was filled with yummies.

7. Line (several, actually)

Hay ready to be bailed

8. Mesmerizing

What is it about a bonfire that makes it so appealing?

9. Triangle

Here's more gingerbread trim, which there's a lot of here on century-old homes north of Toronto.

10. Dreamy

Mists make the world look magical, dreamy...right?

11. Day

What a lovely day to be out in a canoe!

12. Whatever you want

These are all brilliant responses to the scavenger prompts; love the woven shadows in the first photo.

Chipmunks are shameless and greedy, too bad they're so cute as well. =D

Gosh, a lot of pictures and they are all lovely! This could have lasted you 12 days of posts!! Chippies are so cute. I thought my family of chippies who lived under my front steps were gone, but I saw one yesterday, so still there. Probably preparing for winter!

Lowell said...

Again, congratulations are in order. I don't know how you do these scavenger hunts. I don't think I'd have the patience for them. Maybe if I was a doctor, I'd have more patients?

Great job!

shazza said...

Beautiful pictures especially the ones of the animals. The woodpecker is a delight and I love that the chipmonks will feed out of your hand.

TexWisGirl said...

a great set all the way!

Val S said...

Stunning photos! I just love the wicker and shadow for Woven, and I love the trim on the old houses. Those chipmunks sure were brave, and they're so adorable. What a beautiful part of the world you live in!

Sandra said...

you found a match for all twelve and all twelve are perfect. that curly cue is really cool. and the adventure with the chipmunks is what i would LOVE to do

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

That is a BIG scavenger hunt. I used to do one years ago but she didn't have so many to search out. I was hoping someone would say what the curly thing was for. I've never seen one of those.

Kathy said...

I always love your interpretations of the scavenger hunts. I've never done one but it's something I'd like to try someday, although I feel I might be a little bland compared to a pro like you!

Ruth Hiebert said...

You did very well in capturing each of the prompts.

Karen S. said...

Lovely shots, and that shadow is wonderful in the first photo!

Sylvia K said...

Awesome collection as always!!! I love them all and what a great way to start my weekend!!! Just the smiles I needed today! Hope you have a beautiful, fun weekend!!

Jackie Mc Guinness said...

Love scavenger hunts! Thanks for introducing me to Greenthumb's I will play along in October.

rainfield61 said...

I love to see your woodpecker.

William Kendall said...

The trim on the houses particularly appeals to me. I've never seen munks do that... but they're busy this time of year getting stocked up for the winter, so they're allowed to be shameless and greedy!

visualnorway said...

That hard disk of yours must contain quite a substantial collection of brilliant photos!

Debbie said...

WoW....these are all AWESOME!! each one was my favorite, until i viewed the next!! GREAT JOB!!!!

Lea said...

A wonderful series of photos!
Chipmunks are exceptionally brave given their small size. We had some come up to us once when we were on vacation. We stopped at a roadside park to eat and discovered that they love grape jelly!
Have a wonderful week-end!

Snap said...

wow ... great selections for the scavenger hunt. Loved the greedy shot of the woodpecker ... such great detail. We don't have chipmunks here so it is fun for me to see them on your blog. Little guys! Happy weekend.

Gayle said...

Very nice one and all. I wouldn't bring myself to do it but the one of the adventurous chipmunks is great.

VP said...

Hard to pick a favorite image here: brava!

Fundy Blue said...

Just beautiful, EGCG, from striking beginning to striking end! Greedy is wonderful ~ catching the woodpecker with a seed in its beak! Like you, I love the challenge of the scavenger hunt, and I especially love seeing all the different ways people respond to the prompts ~ like your curly; btw I have no clue what that thing on the wire is! Happy hunting in October!

RedPat said...

That looks like so much work, EG! Love all your answers!

Anni said...

A wonderful, eclectic post. And that woodpecker image...so up close and personal....almost able to count the feathers. Amazing.

Lilly's Mom said...

I loved seeing all your photos. Such a magical place you live in. My favorite was the day photo with such a tranquil setting. Enjoy your weekend!

Bethany Carson said...

Love your choices for photos for each of the prompts! Very well done, and very nice photos!

Amy at love made my home said...

Wonderful pictures! I love repeating and triangle very best of all! xx

Marie C said...

Great responses to the Scavenger Hunt themes! And great photos...all!

Kay said...

These are fun. I love the shadows in "woven" and the woodpecker shot is great, greedy or not.

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

What a fun challenge! Good for you!
Happy fall!

Gemma Wiseman said...

An amazing variety of lovely scenes. Love the network and design of shadow lines in the first photo.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Back again. I have fixed your SSS2 link so it reaches this post. The one you supplied was incomplete.

Pamela Gordon said...

What a great collection of photos. I like them all as they are perfect for each topic.

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

I thought you had me with the woodpecker, then you pulled the chipmunks on me. awwwwwwwwwww

Rose said...

Well, I found that the curly thing is a spiral diverter, but going to take some time to find out exactly what its job is.

Love the gingerbread of course, and thought you did a wonderful job fitting pictures to what you were hunting for.

Rose said...

t first glance, it seems the curly thing is to make the power line visible to birds so there are fewer accidents...not sure if that is all though.

Cloudia said...

Gosh this was a tour de force. Big time! Just so well constructed of quality materials, wishes & ideas. Thanks for the time your put into this.

Aww! I clicked on this because of the beautiful Woodpecker photo - and stunning it is, but loved the Chipmunks even more! So cute - would love to see them in the wild one day. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful shots. I like the intricate delicate shadow pattern on the wall and the day with all of that lovely color.

Lois said...

Nice pictures! My favorite one is of the chipmunks.

Stephanie said...

Wonderful series. Absolutely love the woven chair shadow!

colleen said...

That chair shadow shot is so beautiful, as if it's been woven twice. I enjoyed all the shots.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

An interesting new (to me) scavenger hunt. Love all your pics, especially the "Dreamy" photo.

Margaret Adamson said...

HI Tina Well you out did yourself with how well you have illustratedall theords. Yes, as you know I have just joined in forthe first time and am really enjoying the challenge. I am already working on October shot but I am going to try something very different, wn't ell you what as it may never work! Anyway, I love your take in Triangle, woven and curly was clever even though I have not idea what it does! I would love to be in that canoe, paddliing along in the peaceful river or perhaps sialing on that yacht in your last shot? Have a gooreat month ahead scaveging.
