Thank you to Kristian for the Tell the Story Challenge Tag.

The guideline rules are. Take the picture provided and write a story, poem or anecdote about it, then tag three others and provide them with a picture of your own.

Looking at the picture above going to cheat and have two goes as the one I can’t get out of my mind is way too short.


Attempt 1 (only makes sense if you have seen a rather major Super Hero Movie recently….)

Thanos wins…


Attempt 2

A little piece of England on this fine summers morning. The rustling of the breeze and the playful sound of birds. Grasshoppers and crickets chirping. The smell so sweet and so calming. A haven for wildlife. An irreplaceable mini ecosystem. So many birds, butterflies and insects appreciating the ample supply of nectar, pollen and seeds. A small lizard basking on the warming rocks. Frogs and Toads croaking in the cooling pond. Sticklebacks darting silently in the dark waters. A rare Red Squirrel already busily preparing for winter. Garden spiders spinning intricate webs. A mouse and a vole scurrying under the green canopy. And yet…

Within weeks the diggers will move in. Complete destruction. Progress requires the building of a new high speed railway. A decision made hundreds of miles away by politicians feeding off the plate of big business. In the name of progress. To save commuters those precious 20 minutes each day. A quick profit. Is the sacrifice really worth paying…. Explain that to this little piece of England.


The most important rule is to have fun.

AND if you donโ€™t fancy having a go, then thatโ€™s fine.

I am going to tag

      1. We’re looking forward to the next Avengers film as well. But first, it’s Captain Marvel who, I’m guessing, will have some unexpected involvement in how things work out ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. Haven’t seen the film so the first is lost on me ( ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ) but I can well realte to the second.
    Thanks for the tag. Will be posting later, setting everything up for the day and the time I can relax without a certain four legged baby wanting to go out!

  2. Dark, you are. Too much destruction there is. World needs heroes methinks! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Only saw Dr Strange for the first time yesterday! Thanos means little to me as yet – sorry. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a great Sonday. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Maybe your comment can have two meanings….. First way – yes so called progress and destroying things is really just about a quick buck for the already rich. Second way to look at your take – Iโ€™m sorry my poor writing style and grammar, so sorry itโ€™s makes you sad, the fact itโ€™s not just not me who canโ€™t write good prose is down to our poor educational system…….. just joking. Thank you again for reading

      1. Oh pish on the grammar! Dude, I read remedial writing from students all the time. YOUR grammar is nothing like that.
        And yes, I see it here with the never-ending housing developments over marshland, farmland…where do our farmers go? Where CAN they go? Where do our creatures go? Where CAN they go?
