Who’s got the food?
Don’t look at me!
I caught one!
I can’t bear to look!
So darn noisy!
Don’t mess with me!
A teddy bear’s picnic,
Where else but in the woods?
Watched by two wise birds.
One last offering from Shropshire. It didn’t seem to sit well on the end of Monday’s walk though that is when I saw them, in the grounds of the Longmynd Hotel, before we tramped wearily back into Church Stretton. I love the owl but the bears are a bit creepy, don’t you think?
Have a good Thursday!
I spy, with my eye,
A goldfinch, sweetly gilded.
Pure labour of love
Hand-painted, on my daughter’s living room wall. He seems to be looking Over his shoulder, rather wisely, I think. Join Paula in this week’s Thursday’s Special for a totally incredible look at the moon.
eastwards. Tortured by the breeze.
Always in motion
I did say I was leaving my Algarve behind, but you can probably see why it’s hard to do so. For Paula’s Pick a word in June I am illustrating Branching and Continual. For Gilly, a little haiku, because I miss her. Thursday’s Special, isn’t it?
An old, fisherman’s table
Rusted now and all forlorn
‘Gainst the shimmering
Stealing my title from Gilly this morning, but I know she won’t mind. I’m just sharing a last few soothing Algarve images before I return to the real world. If you’ve never met Gilly, you’re in for a treat. Go and say hello!
A leap for freedom.
Tethered to the pedestal,
The lily pad yet lures
Today Thursday’s Special is all about Mirroring. I love watery reflections and, just occasionally, I like to play with Lunapic too.
And then there were two! Please go and visit Paula for another of her sublime images.
Shall we revel in curvaceous beauty?
Shaking off the kiss of rain.
Don’t you like my curves?
After the rather sombre mood of my last post I’m in need of a little uplifting beauty. The Weekly Photo Challenge gives me the perfect opportunity. I hope Jude will approve this for her garden too.
Gilly – for you I have your own personal six words. “I don’t have time to tanka”.
Warm hugs to all. Have a great weekend, and don’t forget to share with Cate. Join me on Monday for one last Polish walk?
With colour, to lift the gloom.
Small beacons of bright.
For years I’ve admired these small balls of Spring fuzz in the Algarve, not knowing what they were. I guess the knowledge is worth a celebratory haiku. Gilly is feeling rather sad this week, so I hope this might cheer her up.
I don’t know how much laptop time I’ll have this weekend, as I’m eagerly anticipating the arrival of my daughter. I’ll be around if I can, but in case I miss you, I wish you all a peaceful and happy Easter.
