 Wordless Wednesday – also known as Worth a Word Wednesday I always enjoy spring time when my tulips appear every year without fail. I do nothing to encourage them, they just keep appearing.

I returned home…

Magnetic Poetry Saturday Challenge #7 – Garden

Over the weekend I was inspired to plant some bright colourful flowers in my sun-room/conservatory/hothouse/she-shed/glasshouse/orangery – call it what you will – and I marveled at the peace that one gets when digging, planting and creating something new. When I started my poem for this week there were a few words that jumped out at me straightaway.  So here’s my latest…

Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge has Macro as the theme for this week. I’m very surprised at the quality and clarity that the humble phone can produce.  I didn’t do very much editing on this photo but did take quite a few shots trying to capture what I have dubbed ‘the tendrils’. I’m not quite sure if I’ve done this right but regardless,…
