Saturday Words and Sunday Shadows October 24-25, 2015

Mt Shasta, California   October 21, 2015
Hopefully this is only the beginning...
Drought Stressed Apricot Tree   October 2, 2015  
After four years of drought we can
only hope that this winter will bring us
lots of snow in the mountains and lots of rain in the valleys.  
Take a peek at the links for more Six Words and Sunday Shadow Shots!


  1. Hope you get the snow and rain. We don't need any more - we'll send you ours.

  2. I'm hoping for the same thing honey. It's been so very dry.

    My heart hurts so badly.

    Have a fabulous day. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

  3. Love that tree in the limbo position, the ultimate in yielding.

  4. Beautiful view of the distant mountain, but the drought-stressed, twist of the tree is quite a sad sight.

  5. Looks superb! Have a good time, Kathe :)

  6. I have a feeling California is going to get a lot of rain this winter.

  7. Lovely post and photos ~

    do hope snow and rain goes in your direction! New England does not need another winter like last year!

    Happy Weekend to you,
    artmusedog and carol

  8. Our drought is ending as i type, with rain from Patricia expected to give us plenty for the next few days. How i wish i could send some your way!

  9. Happily there is a snowy cap on top of Shasta - we back east where a 'drought' is pretty inconsequential cannot appreciate what you in the Golden State have been enduring. Let's hope for a snowy winter at that elevation!

  10. May all the trees have their thirst slaked

    ALOHA, fellow Shadow Shooter!
