Beware of Rubber Duckies!

ABC Wednesday is a word meme with participants from around the world. Our Host, Mrs. Nesbitt hails from Great Britain. We started with the letter, "A" and each week we post something in regards to the next letter of the alphabet. We are now in our second year, round 4! This week's letter is, "R".

Everyone needs a bathtub flanked with Rubber Duckies! Seriously! They are the perfect companions to any bubble bath!

Ristra Shadow. You can see the bottom end of the chili ristra in the top right corner of the image. Moss on the rock is just an added bonus!

Roots. Anyone here old enough to remember the blockbuster mini series from the '80's? Roots? Whatever happened to those miniseries? They were always well done. Now we are reduced to reality shows. What a sad statement of our culture!

Ahhhhh...my favorite perhaps. Rusty things. Rust speaks of the elements. Of age. Of things breaking down. It reminds me that things are not permanent. Very much so in keeping with the philosophical concepts rooted in Wabi Sabi.

Rarely hear anyone mention Wabi Sabi - it's been a fascination of mine for several years... Roots. Yes. It seems the day of decent TV has been uprooted and flung away. Wonderful post!

Perfect choices for the letter R. Every bath should definitely have a rubber duckie!

Rubber Duckies are very fun....
I am a gardener and always interested in roots. A thought provoking r post. Insight and laughter works for me every time.
Thank you.

I like them, especially the last one almost like an abstract painting. No wonder you like rust.

Great selection of 'R's! I like the ristra shadow best - you did well framing that one!

I love them all, but once again I must comment on how wonderfully each image segues into the next. It is a story telling thing, I'm thinking, and you are good at that. I always go back & forth between your images (when you post more than one!) and look for the idea that tethers them together. Sometimes I find it, sometines I don't, but it always works.
