no fear of mountains

the panoramic she craves

 climbing up on high

the sky remains still higher

but her goal always closer

today Betty is doing something I never will be able too. I tried to climb those "fake" walls. Never made even two steps up. My fingers are not strong enough. :)

Oh my, Betty has quite the sexy body and a mountain climber at that. She will make some man a wonderful catch. I love your pictures as well and what are the little blue flowers on the sidewalk? A really nice post today, Gillena and now I will dance to my lunch to the rhythm of your music :)

Hi Andrea
The flowers are windblown and fallen lilacs on the pavement.
Happy you dropped by

Love Betty Boop and the poem, Gillena! And your photos, especially the lilac flowers on the pavement. I didn't see lilacs this year. Between Covid and my husband's heart attack, lilacs didn't happen this year. They are my favorite flowers. Oh well, 2022 brings another spring and more lilacs. My hubby is doing just fine. Have a happy September!

Good to know your husband is better.
Happy you dropped by

Nice poem! Tree bark is interesting and is nice example of rough textures. I'm always fascinated by trees, aren't you? Your song pick has a great beat to put the groove in my move. Thanks for sharing your creative flare this week, my dear. Have a doodletastic weekend! ;)
