ABC Wednesday is a word meme with participants from around the world. This fabulous meme was created and hosted by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt who hails from Great Britain. Over time, others have joined in to help host this wonderful and informative meme. We are now in our EIGHTH round! Some of the participants have been with this from the very first round; others have joined in along the way. Each week we are taken across the globe to see the varied and exciting contributions people have taken the time to discover and capture. We start with the letter, "A" and each week we post something in regards to the next letter of the alphabet. This week's letter is, "U". All images posted here today are from Google's public domain image gallery.
Too precious for words, this image is! I typed in "public domain images of windy hair" and this is one of many that came up. This certainly meets the criteria for, "upswept" don't you think? Notice too, that I am not using identifying names here as I don't want Google alerts to pick this one up! They might make me take it down and that would be upsetting!!!
Ululate: to howl, to wail. Coyotes are known to do that and they most certainly ululate here every night! I usually don't hear them, but from time to time, they are close enough (one year they created a den in our neighbor's yard). I think we could all stand to do some uluating from time to time, can't we?
URCHIN (of the SEA)
Beautiful, but their spines are not very friendly, these sea urchins! The top two are without the dreaded spines. Walking along the reefs and shores of Hawaii, you need to watch out not to step on these as their spines contain enough venom to make you miserable.
There is also an on line auction going on right now that is very dear to my heart. 28 artists have created 'shrines' to sell on line and all proceeds go to the street children of Oaxaca. The auction ends on June 12th. Even if you can't bid on anything, please pass the word along to others so that they might bid (and win). Face Book, email, etc. Each creation is so very unique from the other. Last year we raised $4,000.00 for the children. The premise of this grassroots effort is to end poverty through education.
I enjoy reading your comments, so I hope you leave me comments! I nearly always comment back unless there is a problem with my getting a comment posted at your site (sometimes it happens).
