March 31st, where did the month go? Becky’s been hosting her March Square challenge and most of my squares have been pointy, rather than jagged, spiny, prickly or bristled. As I’ve missed lots of days I thought I’d post 6 squares today, all of them taken in my beloved Devon and Dorset.
The Exe estuary
All my entries are pointy, let me know if they’re not obvious.
With many thanks to Becky for a great challenge, there’s been so many fabulous photos.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you loving, caring and beautiful Mummies out there.
I hope you can see or at least talk to your loved ones, but for those who can’t I’m sending virtual hugs

Lovely morning meander past the mill.
Just three days left for Becky’s Square March and I haven’t made it many times at all. I have another image from Barcelona today, it’s both pointed and jagged.
A view of the roof at Sagrada Familia. Join Becky here, she’s sky watching!
How long does it take for an apple tree to reach maturity? I hope that in a few years I can try the fruit of every one of the young trees that have been planted in the valley park. Yes, an orchard’s worth of trees, I counted 22, each different varieties. They are all old English varieties, most local to the south west and some from just a few miles away.
There’s Farmer’s Glory, a Devon eating or cooking apple, that stores for three months. Exeter Cross, a mix of Worcester Pearmain and Beauty of Bath, an early fruit. Star of Devon comes from Broadclyst, just around four miles from the valley and the fruit lasts until March.
I’ll be watching these young trees grow, isn’t it wonderful that orchards are being created again?
and spiky, pintails searching in the marsh at Topsham.
Just 8 days left to share your points, spikes, prickles and barbs to join Becky’s Square March challenge, even her shadows have spikes today.
He’s surrounded by spiky branches and even his feathers have a stylish pointy pattern.
Day 21 of Becky’s March square challenge and she has ripped jeans!
Pointing in all directions, some towards Becky.
This very beautiful orchid is fragrant and came originally from a friend’s South African friend. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like this now and those dainty little fingers may not point this year.
