ROUND ROBIN - FREAK OF NATURE






This is rather funny : a nun with a cap against the sun ! I have seen her in Turkey.


Everybody would believe that this is snow, but it isn't ! It is chalk or limestone which mother nature has formed here in Turkey.


A strange mushroom which grew just in front of our garage door

What a peculiar looking mushroom! I wonder if it's edible...but don't try it!

I laughed at the nun with the cap on. She must have been hot in her robes, though.

Turkey seems a fascinating place, Gattina, and it's interesting to see you photographs and get your impressions. Hope to see more.

Hi Gattina

This is certainly an interesting group of photos you have assembled here. That mushroom is rather odd, but very cool all the same. :)

Always, Carly

Very interesting and beautiful photos. I like the nun. Most of our nuns don't wear the habit anymore. It's nice to see them dressed as they should be, even if a hat is tossed in. The limestone really does look like snow. That's one odd looking mushroom. Happy WW!

Oh, I like all of these. The second one is especially nice. I love it when landscapes look like they could be on another planet.

Welcome back from your trip. Limestone is great stuff :-) Central Texas and parts west is known for it's limestone.

Mushrooms are freaks of nature! I spotted one growing out of the wood molding in a kitchen a few weeks ago. They can grow anywhere.

I very much like your photos, Gattina, especially the seashore pic. The limestone certainly gives it a different look from the beaches I'm familiar with. Great job!

Great shots! The nun made me laugh, too. We'll have to send her a Yankees hat!
