ABC Wednesday - O!


Get out your dictionary! It's time for ABC Wednesday which is hosted each week by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt and the ABC team -- Denise, Roger, Jay, Troy, Barb, Gattina and me!!

O is for Oops! It's October!





And O is for Otters who swim in the Ocean -- when they're not in the zoo!



The Otters' tribute

Spring sunshine
glistening
like stars,
as it blends
with the
ebullient sprays
from blue waves,
shining
on the strips
of grass,
greening
in satisfaction.

The older one
hears,
from far away,
the strains
of something ,
with
Stars and Stripes....

A leap
on to the bank,
hands
across the heart
he stands
at attention;
The partner,
notices,
learns,
and emulates
the elder;

An otters
tribute,
to a
wonderful
homeland,
that makes living,
so much fun
for them.....

O is for Oh such lovely Oleanders!



And they are in a glass of milk -- at least that's what it said about the picture -- I found it on Google, my place to go if I don't have the picture that I want. Why it is in milk, I haven't the faintest idea!

Mmmmmm O is for Olives and Omelets!





Hungry yet???

Oh sO lOvely. I've seen sea Otters in the Isle Of Skye - wOnderful creatures.
Beautiful phOtOs as always, Sylvia :-)

Liked the October Pictures. the First one was stunning. Yes, the Omelet made me hungry.

I thought that Otters only swim in Fresh Water. You learn something new everyday.

JM said...

Great post on 'O'! I love olives... and otters, but the red tree left me with no words! Fantastic!

Reader Wil said...

Your otters are great and the oleanders beautiful! Are they in a vase of milk, Sylvia?

Leslie: said...

Those Otters look friendly! They alsO are fOund in rivers (but that dOesn't start with an O...lOl). LOve all your phOtOs tOday!

Sylvia K said...

Wil, they are in a glass of milk -- at least that's what it said about the picture -- I found it on Google, my place to go if I don't have the picture that I want. Any of the ones by me will have my name/blog on them. Every once in a while I have to go hunting, not a lot of Os in my photo stash! Thanks for your visit! Always appreciated!!

Mara said...

Is the first photo of that beautiful red tree the same is in your current header? Absolutely beautiful!

And why are the oleanders in a glass of milk?

Tumblewords: said...

OO, awesome! I'm torn between tripping (long distance) to the ocean and eating olives and omelets. I'm not, though, craving October. :)

bobbie said...

A great assortment of O's. I do love otters! I went quickly past the olives. Don't like them at all.

Paula Scott said...

I wasn't hungry until I came here and to Leslie's page! What a fun and delicious post! Although, I am perplexed as to why the Oleanders are in a glass of what looks to be milk (did I miss something?).

Joy said...

Outstanding O and October tree, its almost like a hat. I've heard of lemonade for roses but never milk for Oleanders, or does it just look pretty for a picture.

anthonynorth said...

Great photos. I haven't had an omelette in ages. I think I'll have to remedy that.

Jingle said...

You definitely made me hungry with this post, but I still think it's a wonderful 'O" post.

I love otters! I used to have a real thing about them as a child, which grew from a book I read... over and over again!

Oleanders in milk. Hmm. Seems someone wants to do a little poisoning. Haha!

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
