Round Robin Photo Challenge -- Looking Up!

















Today the theme for the Round Robin Photo Challenge is Looking Up! I looked up around my place and these are some of the itmes I found.

First is the Topsy Turvy tomato planter that hangs from the eaves of my back porch. I took the shot from down on the sidewalk that goes around the back of my house.


















Here is the top of my new maple tree, facing upwards towards the sky. It is coming along nicely and is fairly tall for a new tree.


















My new DISH NETWORK satellite dish is on my roof, having been placed there a couple of months ago.


















My huge camellia bush goes over the top of the roof of my two-story house. It is going to be cut back when the painting of the house is done soon.


















I also have some very tall trees around my place that I hope will stay in place, especially during the winter windstorms we get, but they are tricky to photograph.

For more Round Robin bloggers looking up, go to the link in the first sentence and you will find the site with the links to them all. It's very fun!

Love the upside down tomato plant photo! I did that a couple of years ago in an old hanging basket and they turned out great!

Good fun, especially the tomato planter. Nice trees, too bad some maybe cut.

Hi!
Great looking up post! We have a really tall Blue Spruce in our front yard. It's taller than our house which is a two story house. Have a great evening!

I'm trying to figure out how that topsy turvy tomato planter works. Is there soil inside it...or what? I think I might need one of those.

I've seen ads for the upside down tomato plants and have been curious about them since. I'd love to know how it does for you.

We have tried the upside down tomato planter as well, but, gave up after the second time the squirrels pulled the plant out of the holder. Just could not find a spot they could not reach.

Great Shots. thanks for stopping bye.
