Good morning and welcome to #487 "Someone, Someplace, Something! Whatever!!!". As the title implies this is a wide-open free-for-all kind of week. So if you like it, take a photograph of it and share it with us. Not an it but a them, do it anyway. We'd love to share your friends and family with you. All the normal CS rules apply. Please pay particular attention to only including a max of 3 photos in each post but post as often as you'd like.

Here are a few samples to get those creative juices flowing.

An outdoor sculpture project at the local Art Museum. Great potential for shooting here. You'll see a lot of this over the coming weeks.

Part of an old weather vane that has been in our family garden for quite a few years now. My wife got it at a barn sale in Texas many years ago.

Great examples, the sculpture is unusual, the weathervane is tack sharp with nice DoF, and Franklin is indeed handsome (great smile)!

So for a bit of "Something". There's a very young Dogwood tree in the front that Frannie got a few years ago. She loved Dogwoods. Planted the tree and it grew nicely and had a nice crop of leaves but never so much as one flower. It popped it's very first flower on the day of Frannie's Memorial Service - a warming and wonderful sign. Loads of buds at the end of the winter and now it's popping the buds like crazy and new leaves are coming as well. Very heartening for me.

Purgatory Chasm was formed by a glacier 14,000 years ago although, how it was formed is still not understood. The walls are about 70 feet high and fairly straight.
The rocks and walls have sharp edges and show no signs of erosion or water flow. The chasm runs for about a quarter mile. The chasm was still closed for the season
due to ice and slippery rocks on the floor. The chasm area is difficult to walk because trees with huge roots have been allowed to grow along and in the chasm.

Nice photos of a very interesting formation, Dave. Where is that??
EDIT: I found it -- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purgatory_Chasm_State_Reservation [Of course, it's on Purgatory Road.]

A lot of pretty plants are starting to bloom in the gardens now. Florida thinks it's mid-Spring to early Summer -- it'll get close to 90 today.

Iris among the pond plants.

These plants are being trained to grow over an arbor. The plants are ok looking but I love the little red flowers that bloom this time of year.

I'm not a "plant" person, but the flower in shot #2 is gorgeous! Very nice set Art.

You're making me jealous, Art. Our crocuses are blooming and I did spot daffodils in Lancaster yesterday,but we're just watching and waiting at home.
