  3. I just saw the prompt and as I am going to be busy with the gardener all day tomorrow, I had to strain to produce my contribution here and now.
    It is midnight now and I probably won't sleep because my brain is still fizzing.

  4. It's been a while since I wrote my last magpie, but now I'm back again, I just couldn't stay away :) A bit sad about the ones I missed...


    Great pictures as always Willow!

    Thank you!

  6. This is the first time I have done a Magpie, though I have known some people from other areas. I am looking forward to meeting people here. Nice topic, Willow.

  7. This is something that I posted earlier and I may post another Magpie. I am little under the weather so this may have to do for this week.

  10. Missed last week :( Life has just taken hold of me and I'm so busy...need to slow down and enjoy the changing of the leaves before they all fall off and leave a barren wilderness.

  11. Well... I was aiming for a little closer to the beginning of this, but work has been really crazy lately, leaving only limitted time to participate in blogland.

    I hope everyone enjoys this segment of Jack's tale.... had a tough time figuring how to fit this one into what I had already been working on.

  15. Mr Linky is stil ignoring my efforts. I had a ready made offeringHERE but as usual, Mr Linky didn't want to know...I can't for the life of me decide why he has problems with me on this blog, as on others, he accepts me with no problems...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Like the spider, I have tried and tried again, and I do believe this time it may have worked... We shall see, no doubt...

  17. Dear Willow: Minor emergency. My post number 37 doesn't link with my blog; it just goes to a generic Blogspot location. 38 goes to my blog. I'd appreciate it if you could delete #37 and keep #38.

  18. Splendid image,Willow!

  20. Your fine photo reminded me of something I posted a year ago (before I'd come across your site). It was one of my better efforts, so I linked to that. Thanks for the service you provide, Willow.

    ReplyDelete
  27. This prompt made me so happy. Don't see much color here in Central California so any opportunity to write it into my mind makes me smile and laugh!

    Read My Autumnal Magpie!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Going on with the series of the mysterious couple...will the changing of the seasons mean a change in themselves?

    Your support is much appreciated as it gives me great encouragement and inspiration.

    Thankyou and enjoy (:

  44. Superb prompt. Stimulating and would have made an excellent post in its own right.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Thanks, Dave, I took this photo through the skylights last October, after a particularly strong storm blew ginkgo leaves to the back of the house.

  46. Like Ms. Friko, my sleep does
    get interrupted by creativity.
    Often when an idea begins to
    gestate, I have to rise with just
    a few winks under my belt,
    and exorcise these demons of
    prose, essay, and poetics.
    For those of you that may not
    have read through the comments
    over at the Manor on Willow's
    poem, I remind you that my
    piece, GROUT FISHING IN
    AMERICA, is rife with humor,
    and should be read with
    tongue in cheek.

    And naive me, only today
    did I realize that on the
    MAGPIE lexicon, the
    commenter YOU'RE NEXT
    is only a prompt
    and not a person!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Great photography Willow, and wonderful prompt!
    Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! :-)

    ReplyDelete
