My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Resilient

 This week I decided to post

some images of landmarks which…

were talked about when I was at school…

have been through two World Wars…

and which we were fortunate enough

to visit in September, 2016.

Although we only made it to the second level

of the Eiffel Tower it was an experience

not to be forgotten.

We were told that we could climb up, inside,

the Arc De Triomphe,

however, my knees, ankles and feet

suggested otherwise.

And although were saddened to see this site

as it was our last night of the tour…

It was wonderful to get back on British soil again.

I don’t know how many times I said ‘grazie

only to realise that we had crossed a border

and now should have said ‘merci‘, or ‘danke‘.

December

Once December arrives, our focus every year…

nativity_2326 has been on this…

christmas_2016_4045

and this.

This means family and we can relax

in the company of relatives

for a few hours, where

work is not calling.

Of course all that is applicable if you are

not hosting Christmas, isn’t it?

York.

We should have tried a few of these when in York.

However, I have no idea what this tree is.

Some York crocus flowers.

Ccrocus appear to grow randomly in the U.K.

We sighted many in St James’ Park

just popping up through the lawn.
