This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge from The Daily Post is for the topic:



I love Spring and seeing things come back to life, and growing, following a long, hard Winter.  Watching my garden grow and sprout and produce.

Relationships grow, and fade to brown at times, much like flowers and plants, only to re-bud and bloom.

But nothing is more indicative of growth, to me at least, like watching ones kids.  Learning, increasing in size, and gaining maturity and wisdom.


With that said, here’s my take on it:


My songs of the day are:

“We Don’t Grow Tobacco” by Old Crow Medicine Show

“Grow Up” by Sheryl Crow

“I Don’t Want To Grow Up” by Tom Waits

“Growth” by India.Arie

“That’s How People Grow Up” by Morrissey

“I Taught Myself How To Grow Old” by Ryan Adams

“Tree To Grow” by The Lone Bellow

“Let It Grow” by Eric Clapton
