Begun way back in the mist of time by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock and now continued by me, with a drastic relaxation of rules.
Originally meant for showcasing old photos lost on your files, never seeing the light of day, the meme has morphed into photos of your choice, new or old, good or not-so-good, anything you please, but nothing rude please.
If you are participating, please leave me a comment so I can buzz along and have a look.
Elephant's Child usually participates, and she may or may not be back today.

this is the honey I'm currently using in my cups of tea, Beechworth brand, which is always nice tasting, 'Bee Cause' Mountain Honey.

the wood grain may not show very well, but it is quite pretty with its multiple growth rings. I wouldn't mind having a slab of this polished up as a coffee table. The general shape of the entire stump reminds me of the large polished slab, mounted on a piece of old trunk/root section of another tree, which is used as a dining table in the Arkaba Hotel. It's a huge table, the Coles girls and I sat around it at our Christmas/New year dinner.
The setting sun backlit these clouds very nicely.
