An eclectic range of art...

then its White Tower will crumble and

the country will be plunged into chaos.

Comfortable

It appears that young Maggie did not care about comfort

the day she licked up discarded cooking wine.

MGW thought Maggie was ill…until

she smelled Maggie’s breath.  🙂

 

 

Growing 

About ten days after autumn rain

grass seeds begin to pop through

seeking warm sunshine.

 

Tangled

Perhaps the rope is not as tangled

as it could be…

..so I added some rectangles of

which there are plenty.


Crowded 

I was wishing some of the tourists had stayed away

the day we visited Rome’s

Trevi Fountain.

 

Exuberant

It seems a life time ago since I was able

to jump like this without any concern

for the damage it was doing to my knees.

FOWChallenge-Ancient

~~~~~

~~~~~

ancient

belonging to the very distant past
and no longer in existence.
~~~~~


Both my places of interest certainly fit

the ancient status as required by the meaning.

 

However, does the fact that ruins of

the Colosseum…

 

 


and Pompeii exist negate their ancient status?

 

 

I think not.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Happiness-is…

~~~~~

Happiness varies depending on where I am.

On holiday…

…happiness is good food,

good company…

in good surroundings.

At home…

…happiness is playing with the dog…

…shopping online or in person.

The only condition is that I

HAVE TO

buy something.

 

When that’s all done…well we can

learn from the animals can’t we?

 

 

Also at home, happiness is reading and comparing

thoughts with MGW should we happen to read

the same book or author.

One-Word-Sunday-Umbrellas

~~~~~

 

This week’s images

come from Italy and France.

Venice and Murano…

 

…provided us with our first wet weather day

since leaving Australia.

 

More wet weather at Pompeii where even under cover

colourful umbrellas were required

to keep rain at bay.

 

And the downpour eased we had to

negotiate flooded streets before

reaching our coach.

At least the umbrellas at Nice were being used

to keep the sun away and afford some privacy

on Nice’s private beaches.
