A to Z Challenge: the Letter S

This meme comes from Martha at Menagerie. The idea is to shoot a photo for each letter of the alphabet; we move on to a new letter every two weeks.

Today, boys and girls, we learn about the letter 'S' as in Sesame Street. Or as in sorry, I couldn't resist. I had a hard time choosing which S photo to post, so here are several. I avoided the obvious Santa and silver bells and stockings.

As always, click on the image for a much better view!



Swiss chard, the winter warrior.


Sunnyside Piazza, a little oasis in our neighborhood. Portland is very into community space, even if it's a bench on a street corner. Not all are as elaborate as this one which includes a kiosk for posting information and events and this ginormous sunflower in the intersection:



Squash at the co-op.


Self-portrait: my colorful socks. Not stockings.



Oh, and -- SNOW! It's just ducky.

I love swiss chard...not easy to find here in S. Florida. I have better luck while in Floyd.

Wow, you were just full of S's! Great shots! Sorry things are running so far behind. The linking list and next letter should be up today! :-)
