Blossom, Bumper Sticker and A Bluebell

The Crab Apple tree planted last week at the allotment is beautifully covered in blossom.

Someone at the lottie has this delightful bumper sticker on their car. We want to find one!

In our drive there is a lovely, lone, self-planted Bluebell.

 

Rainbow, Raindrops and Be Happy

A rainbow appeared in our washing-up liquid bottle.

The overnight rain left drops on the long, folded leaves of the Iris Reticulata.

I challenge you to read the following without bursting into song!

 

Window, Stickers and Bluebell

On a short walk today we passed a lovely old building with a beautiful window.

Driving home, we followed a pasty van with two amusing stickers.

We saw our first bluebell today.

Today, Palindromes and Ambigrams

 

It amuses me that my initials are also palindromic and ambigramic!

Bag, Shoes and A New Word

A very brief foray to the pharmacy late this afternoon once the red warning of wild weather had been downgraded to amber and I walked past my favourite  fabric shop where the wording on this bag amused me.

In the charity shop next door were these gorgeous purple shoes. I couldn’t wear them but I do love a pretty shoe!

I love learning new words and this one really struck home!

There have been moments in the last two weeks when I have felt absolutely quanked but as the lovely Mr S makes such good progress my days are far less tiring. Thank you to everyone who has asked after his well-being and sent positive messages.  The four times a day exercises are going well and the new knee being tamed with a little more flexibility every day.

Donkeys and Lambs

Isn’t this delightful?
Donkey nannies in Italy.
Each year in Italy, grazing animals are moved from high pastures down to the plains. Newborn lambs are unable to make this journey on their own. Instead, they ride in the pouches of a specially made saddle on the back of a donkey or a mule nanny. They are taken down at rest stops and returned to their mothers for a bite to eat and a bit of nuzzling.

Compliment, Knitting and Frida

It’s National Compliment Day and this delightful one made my day, a quotation from Maurice Sendak, author of the wonderful children’s book, ‘Where the Wild Things Are’.

On #NationalComplimentDay, an all-time anecdote from a 1986 interview with NPR’s Terry Gross

The following is, I hope, a piece of knitting that will appeal to the cat lovers out there. I wish I had made it!

Sorry, don’t know the designer

Another piece of loveliness that came my way today, another piece I wish I had the skill to make!

Frida – Made by Tara Williamson

John Lennon, Cartoon and Dark Sky

It is the anniversary of the death/assassination of John Lennon, English singer, songwriter, musician and peace activist – one of the Beatles. I saw The Beatles several times in the ’60s in a very small venue above the Co-op when I (briefly) lived in Doncaster as a teenager. We loved them and this day in 1980 was a very sad one. This lovely photo came my way today.

This is delightful and made me smile.

We went to visit our dear friends today, one of whom is our lovely 102 year old whom you may have read about before. I took her one of my angels from yesterday, the top one if you saw yesterday’s blog. We sang carols and ate mince pies and had a lovely afternoon together.  As we left, the sun had gone down and the sky, very dramatic. I loved the weather vane against the sky. Camera was on the wrong setting hence the fuzz.

Purring

I saw this today and it really appealed to me. 

I hope you have had something to purr about today.

Stickers, Balloon and A Tractor

I passed this car the other day and loved all the stickers. I recognised the Darwin one and love the Terry Pratchett reference but  I had to look up the FSM one and discovered, to my delight, all about the Church of the  Flying Spaghetti Monster. The others I think, speak for themselves. I would love to get to know the driver – I think we would get along.

Shopping in town this morning, we were amused by some teenagers with their balloon, trying to keep it under control. On our way back to the car, we saw it floating above the town……

I had to think twice about posting the following photo it being far too soon to post about Christmas but this did amuse us as we walked into the garden centre this afternoon.
