A post I did not want to do…
One Final Word, well two in case the second is not well-known. W4W is ending as a meme. There are far too many memes and too little time for all that participate, posts spanning and linking to four and five similar memes at a time. That is a lot of visiting if you do the considerate thing.
I may still do W4W as a post like today, and welcome anyone to do the same, but not as an official meme. I hope you have enjoyed the W4W posts, as I have enjoyed doing them very much.
It gave everyone a chance to either express what they know or explore what they didn’t. It was a chance to go outside the box, or venture outside your own garden – a post where photography skills could expand or shine.
Many chose to look inward and reflect, to stretch the realm of putting pen to paper, so to speak, with poetry and prose. Others presented photos that were so beautiful, and all inspired by a word.
Please look back through and see the wonderful posts that came from W4W from bloggers around the world. The word is the inspiration, and the ways in which it was interpreted became the beautiful result of creativity and originality. So what is the word for this Wednesday?
One final word….
pastoral |ˈpastərəl, pasˈtôrəl|
1 (esp. of land or a farm) used for or related to the keeping or grazing of sheep or cattle: scattered pastoral farms.
• associated with country life: the view was pastoral, with rolling fields and grazing sheep.
• (of a work of art) portraying or evoking country life, typically in a romanticized or idealized form.
And the word I was going to use that some may not know….
Sacro-Idyllic – A landscape that shows an ideal countryside. I picked this word to end where we started with bucolic.
Just added this below to help clarify sacro-idyllic…
sacrosanct |ˈsakrōˌsa ng (k)t|
(esp. of a principle, place, or routine) regarded as too important or valuable to be interfered with.
Thanks to all that have joined over the past year. I very much like the thoughtful posts that linked in. It was much appreciated.

It was a long road for W4W, but we end where we started.
The next post on GWGT will be back to the gardens. It is a look at the open gardens of the Lewiston GardenFest. If you remember, I am a committee member for this event.
