THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: PICK A WORD – MARCH 2022

Here comes another Pick a Word photo challenge post, at the end of March. As you know, posts appear on a monthly basis, but I can never tell for sure when in the month it will happen.

I don’t like March for many reasons, and this year the reasons are bountiful.

And yet, it is not a reason for not posting, so here it goes, my words for March:

ASPEROUS

CRUSTACEOUS

EFFUSIVE

MOUNTED

TRIAD

asperous
crustaceous
effusive
mounted
triad

If you find these words inspiring and want to take part in this challenge, you are more than welcome. Just pick one or more or all of the given words, and interpret them in photos, and don’t forget to have fun in the process!
