Tuesday triptych: Nemophilist

Bournemouth's alum chine - woodland triptych
click to appreciate!

The nemorous, narrow gorge of Alum Chine, which was nearly the nemesis of young Churchill when he tumbled  from one of the bridges that nudge the treetops. Having nursed broken legs and neprhritis, he lived on until ninety – a nonagenerian!
But the narrative digresses – this Tuesday’s triptych is not just for aroborphiles but nemophilists whose nature is at one with woodlands…and are hob-nobbing with Frizztext in the NNN Challenge

Notes: Not to be confused with Nemophilas, baby blue-eyed Spring flowers of the USA. It too means means “woodland-loving” – from the Latin word nemus/grove and the Greek philos/ loving.

  1. great INTRO:
    “The nemorous, narrow gorge of Alum Chine, which was nearly the nemesis of young Churchill when he tumbled from one of the bridges that nudge the treetops. Having nursed broken legs and neprhritis, he lived on until ninety – a nonagenerian!”

      1. because I hated Wernher von Braun (class camerad of my mother, near Peenemünde) – I adored Churchill who had the power to resist vs. Nazi madness – V1 etc.

  2. Digressing even further … did you know that Churchill was a keen bricklayer? I was informed by my neighbour that I was in good company as I struggled to fix my garden wall.

    1. thanks for the visit and input b-a-g – perhaps its because “a successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him” (David Brinkley) 🙂

  3. I am distracted by the comments, not to mention the idea of Churchill picking up bricks thrown at him and building a wall to protect himself with… The triptych itself has left me wanting to take a walk in the woods.
