frame

a rigid structure that surrounds something
such as a picture, door, or windowpane.

A few years ago we did a small road trip

around New Zealand’s, North Island.

We chose to stay at Buckland’s BnB

near Matamata, but only around a five-minute drive

from the Hobbit Movie Set our destination.

 

The window above our bed framed this scene perfectly.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Myth

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

a traditional story, especially one concerning
the early history of a people or explaining a natural
or social phenomenon, and typically involving
supernatural beings or events.

My image for this post was captured at

the Hamilton Gardens (NZ) in 2018

Legend has it that Romulus and Remus,

the twin founders of Rome, were abandoned as children

and had to be suckled by a wolf until they were discovered

by a wandering shepherd.

Eventually, they founded the great city on Palatine Hill,

the very place where they had

been cared for by the wolf.

This is likely just a myth, but history abounds

with real stories of children who really were

raised by animals.
