I found this week’s photo challenge title another hard one. That was until I went for an evening stroll around our little Essex seaside town. I spotted this sign in the greengrocersI then found this one in the mobility store window Based on the previous image I’ll leave it up to you to decide why I included this one. Last of all I found this outside a cafe.

Correct spelling really isn’t a strong feature of where I live!!

Not very interesting photos but definitely work for ‘wrong’. Hopefully I can find something more photographic for the next challenge!


Yesterday morning when I was watering my garden I was surprised by a small frog jumping out from under the plant I was watering. We used to live in a house with a large garden and a wildlife pond, so frogs were ten- a- penny, but our current home has a small garden with no room for a pond.

It is also a very secure garden with high fences all round, and no gaps anywhere. So I was very surprised to find we had acquired a frog. We live next door to a care home with a large garden, so my guess is the frog came as a very small froglet through one of the tiny gaps in the fencing and has been living unknown in our garden since then.

Seeing the frog immediately took me back to my teaching days when ‘growth’ was a very popular classroom topic with my little ones and I taught them the life-cycle of a frog, bringing in tadpoles and watching them grow, before taking them back to the same pond to release the froglets.

So here is my photo of our frog, a worthy contributor to the ‘growth’ photo challenge. frogAs I feel it’s likely to be a long term resident in our secure garden our little frog needs a name. Suggestions welcome!


I decided to join the weekly photo challenge. I found this week’s title of ‘inside’ to be just that – a challenge. So many things are more beautiful on the inside than they are on the outside. For example many buildings, especially old buildings. Then there are things in nature, like flowers, which often have really beautiful insides, or shells, like an oyster shell, which is really quite ugly on the outside but has a beautiful pearly coating inside. So what to photograph? Then this morning I went for an early walk round our little seaside town. I always carry a camera with me. ‘Inside’ the window of our local Thai restaurant I saw a little model of a Thai figure and thought it was beautiful. So here is my ‘inside’ photograph taken through a shop window.
