Happy Days, Web and Three Wise Monkeys

03 Jul

1   We followed this camper van home from Truro today. I like their philosophy!

2   This beautiful web was dripping with jewel-like drops of water and then I spotted the little spider. You’ll have to click on the photo to see it.

3   I showed you the monkey planter sometime ago – now it is in flower!

I’m posting early today as we are off to see Mike and The Mechanics tonight and could be late home.

    Yes there is nothing like
    roughing it smoothly MBT
    and a great find too 🙂

    You always add something
    rather unique my friend 🙂 😉

      It’s really just serendipity that interesting things turn up. Mr S pointed out the camper van to me. I had been dozing as he was driving! 🙂

        Yes I guess that is true 🙂
        But it was still a great find
        nonetheless 🙂

        I will look forward
        to your next recipe 🙂

          It’ll be a while before I have time as the family arrive in earnest tomorrow, our second daughter, husband and two little ones, then my brother and wife from Munich with their daughter and her son on Wednesday. Friday brings my brother and his wife from Atlanta and daughter No1 and so the party begins! I hope to have time to post my 3 things but won’t have time to read, comment , reply – so please bear with me! I’ll be back! 🙂

            Hey don’t forget to mention
            the family bible and I hope
            that your brother agrees that
            it is already in the right place
            with you 🙂

            Have a fun evening my friend 🙂

            Fancy you remembering! I’m hoping that he will agree of course but if not that it will prove to be too heavy to add to his luggage!:)

            I feel sure that he will be happy
            to leave the book with you once
            he has had another chance of
            browsing through it, after all he
            will eventually have the bible and
            so his children can take on the
            responsibility of caring for it as
            the family line runs on 🙂

            Be well MBT and enjoy all those
            happy days and nights with your
            family 🙂 Hey and I hope that the
            weather cheers itself up too 🙂

    Super photos! Love the saying on the van and the monkey planter is just to cool!!! Thanks for sharing the web photo…we haven’t had rain (or dew) in weeks so this was a nice treat!

      And we have had nothing but rain – but that does mean there are some gems of photos to be made!
      I take it as a great compliment when you praise my photos as you really know what you are doing and I just keep trying! 🙂

      Me too! It was made just for me by a local artist and I love it! 🙂

    I adore the monkey planter!!! And, the roughing it smoothly sign; what a great motto to aspire to!

      It’s lovely isn’t it? It is serendipitous how these lovely things cross my path! 🙂
      I’m pleased with how the monkey planter has turned out. I’ve had it for several years and this is the first time I’ve planted it up. 🙂

    Love how the van sums up life my friend 😀
    And as scared as I am off spiders, I adore their webs!

      And webs covered in raindrops are very special. I once saw (and heard!) a web where the raindrops had frozen and were being blown in the wind and they were making a tiny tinkling sound that entranced me. 🙂

    Lovely pictures. The van does sum up life well, doesn’t it? And the spider’s web was glorious. So there is a nice side to the rain! 🙂 Hope you enjoy the concert.

      The concert was fabulous, thank you – danced the night away and came out feeling on top of the world! That’s the kind of gig I love! 🙂
      Glad you liked today’s beautiful things. 🙂

      It was brilliant! Danced all night and came out to the sound of the waves lapping on the shore and just thought how lucky I am! 🙂
