Happy Unbirthday to me!

Its ABC Wednesday's letter of the week: the ubiquitous, understated, unbelievable U

Standing under this unbelievable double rainbow in Wisconsin this weekend I understood more of what's important, especially to those who work the land.

Last month I walked warily under this umbrella-like canopy of trees as the 'cotton' from cottonwood trees floated and eerie light filtered down the winding path.

An unlucky car in our parking lot under a blanket of snow left behind by an unexpected spring snow storm.

To see more challenging U photos or join in, visit ABC Wednesday hosted by Mrs Nesbitt.

Happy unbirthday to you! How many of them do you have each year? Is it like in" Alice in Wonderland"? Amazing that you had such a thick layer of snow in spring!

You've several unders there for your U, but did you look up as well? Yes, I guess when you were under the rainbow you had to be looking up.

Amazing photo's! I love double rainbows. Often see them out of our back window. Not sure why, we must be on the edge of a weather system or something.

Love that winding path!

Happy Unbirthday! (LOL!)

Thanks for visiting my Ugli tomato post. I think we planted some in my dad's garden. But, we will have to wait for harvest to be sure. I've enjoyed seeing your site.
