I thought it might be fun to take new words and find photos to illustrate their meaning.

  1. I like the idea of using a new word to stimulate ideas for photos”Commingling” is a good one, and I don’t think I could have spelled it!! I subscribe to a word of the day website, and the word today is “deciduous.” Because of your idea, I think I will post a photo to illustrate that particular word. Your blog always gives me ideas!!
