One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

Play It Again, Toads #2

An Asheville, NC B&B
 Welcome to Play it Again, Toads! I, Margaret, am pleased to be back with this monthly challenge.  Please do not feel restricted to the three I have chosen to highlight from the Toad's archives.  Feel free to explore and find one that inspires you to try for the first time or to "play" again.

Middleton Plantation, SC
When I travel I adore photographing historical homes - when I take walks I enjoy snapping photographs of interesting houses, gardens, and architecture.  I have included a few here today - feel free to use them as inspiration if you wish - however, they must be combined with an archived challenge.
Middleton Plantation, SC

I love your photos, Margaret. They are so atmospheric. When I look at each scene I know there is a story waiting to be uncovered.

Thank you for this wonderful chance to try again or try a prompt we may have missed.

What a wonderful set of pictures.. However when I saw the jargons I could not resist to write a poem with some math-jargon. Hope you like it. It's getting late here, but I will be back later to read.
