Where does the time go?

Wow. Has it really been almost two months since our last post? Since January’s snow, we’ve had record-breaking high temperatures, a six-day monsoon with more than five inches of rain, a few tornadoes and tomorrow night, we have a freeze warning.

Weekly photo challenge: Depth (of time, past and future)

This week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge focuses on depth. We thought we’d explore some temporal, rather than spatial depths. The top photo is a fragment of a worked stone — its age and purpose unknown.  Its once sharp fracture creases have been eroded by both depth in time and water. Novaculite, an excellent material for flintknapping, is found in the Arkansas and Oklahoma Ouachitas.

The bottom photo was taken leaving work last Friday afternoon. The swelling buds on this tulip tree speak of the depth of time until spring.

Napped flint in palm.
Gift from the past.
