Theme Thursday, Volume 3: Knots

Thank goodness for Theme Thursday; otherwise I’d be in a serious blogging slump!   I had even made a list of Five Favorites for Hallie’s link-up, but I just couldn’t turn it into a post.  I might save it for a 7 Quick Takes–wish me luck.

When I saw that this week’s theme was, “knots,” the first thing that came to mind was Mary, Undoer of Knots.  I invoked her just recently when we transported some heavy furniture from one town to another on a rental truck and tried to tie it down so it wouldn’t shift during the trip.  I didn’t take photos that day, though; I’ll tell you all the Saga of the Furniture some other time.

Knots…knots…AH HA!!!  Trees!!

The other day I was taking a run/walk in the woods, trying for the gazillionth time to establish a regular exercise routine.  I took my phone with me–I didn’t have my good camera, unfortunately–and snapped a few photos of knot holes in trees.  This was the best one (and it’s not that great):

Next week’s theme is “Statues.”  That one will be a piece of cake, and with any luck I’ll publish one or two more blog posts between now and then.  Thanks to Clan Donaldson for the inspiration; click here for more knottiness!

    Tree knots! Forgot about those! I think it came out well and I envy your walk /run through the woods. Not much of that happening for me lately!

    I think knots in trees are so pretty, but they are horrible when it comes to chopping for firewood.

    Tree Knots. How clever of you, that didn’t even occur to me. Nicely done. Looks like it would be a wonderful walk/run.
