Beauty from a thrift store

Lake Michigan – July 2016

Easter lily flowers yesterday – April 24, 2019

Photos are by Ellen Grace Olinger.

The Daily Post Photo Challenges were good teachers, for new photos and collections of photos. Please see The Daily Post for lots of good content. It is interesting – as I need to work online for other reasons, I realize how much I have learned from WordPress. And I learn more all the time.

Lake Michigan – June 2015

I enjoy creating new arrangements as flower bouquets fade.

Many of my photos and posts were inspired by The Daily Post prompts and challenges. You can view The Daily Post Photo Challenges Archive.

The Daily Post editors are excellent: “All the tools you need to jump-start a new blog, or to revive an existing one.”
