ABC Wednesday - Z is for...

I umm'd and ahh'd for a long time about the letter Z. Where in the world could I find a Z?????
So I went out the back to the downstairs 'smallest room' and whilst contemplating my blog I saw this door, with its Z shaped support frame - Ah! Perfect, I thought.
Then Emily pointed out that there was a Z in the 'A' frame of her swing. I couldn't see it at first but she persisted and was eventually proved right, so I snapped it before I lost it. Clever Emily.

For more superb letter Z's visit Mrs Nesbitt's Place

This is a good Z! It isn't easy to come up with something on this letter. You did a great job!

Good idea! If you can't find a word that begins with Z, then find a Z shape!

RuneE said...

You even got two Zs in the first one!

Müge Tekil said...

well done, emily! ABC Wednesday really makes us look at things differently, doesn't it?

I love your blog header photo too.

Aileni said...

I thought I was going to be entertained by the 'Z' choices - I wasn't wrong.

CrazyCath said...

Clever Emily indeed! And clever you on the door - original!
And what do you mean I am living up to my title? You think I'm crazy? Don't mess with a crazy woman! lol

(Actually, just don't mess with a woman. Or a crazy. Put those two concepts together and you're doomed! DOOMED!!! *manic laughter*)

Thanks for your visit to mine.

Gary said...

Ooh! CrazyCath, I'm sooooooo scared - I should've known better than to mess with a woman - I did it 15 years ago and look where I ended up - wedded bliss???, more like holy MADrimony!! (But you can't help but love her - had to say that, she's in the room LOL!!!!)

Blue said...

Clever & well spoted

The Urban Buddha said...

Gordon said...

A creative interpretation on the letter Z.

DeeJay said...

hehe all my best thinking is done in that little room!

I really like the Z in the swing frame

Andrea said...

Your daughter is very smart. It took some staring and then looking away to look again before I found her Z. Now I see it very clearly.

Jerez said...

interesting what one sees when put to the test, eh?
Like the shots! Hope you are doing good!

Katney said...

Z was quite a challenge for many of us. I didn't think I would find something within my theme until it came to me suddenly. You did well with it.

nonizamboni said...

Well, I'd say you are both clever and visual! Great Z--it was hard though.
Happy Wednesday!
