Grandpa Igasho shows off his new orange and black outfit. “What do you think of my Halloween costume? I thought I’d better grab it quick before they were all sold out.”
This is my contribution to Debbie’s ‘Six Word Saturday’ challenge.
I hope you’re all having a great weekend.
Danny and Daisy share a loving moment and in so doing, create a sweet heart shape.
Today is ‘World International Peace Day’ and even after almost 50 years, this message from John Lennon never gets old and will always stay relevant. Wishing you all a peaceful and relaxing weekend.
The best kind of Monday blues.
Yesterday, I had a wonderful reunion with my sister and her family. There will be more good times together in the next two weeks and on Wednesday, our daughter and granddaughter arrive to spend a long weekend with us.
Wishing you all a splendid week.
Here’s my ‘Feathers on Friday’ photo. This Sooty Albatross couldn’t really get much closer to the edge of the pier.
Having a great time here at the seaside. Wishing you all a pleasant and relaxing weekend.
This graveyard here in St Ives, Cornwall, has to be up in the top ten places to be buried.
Having a great time here in Cornwall. I’m really looking forward to meeting a fellow blogger today. We leave for South Africa on Thursday.
Mr GBH has quite a beakful this morning. Good catch!
Wishing you all a happy and relaxing weekend. I shall be busy packing for our overseas trip.
Well, here in Florida I think we’ve reached saturation point with all the rain we’ve been having, but today the sun is shining so here’s hoping we’ll have blue skies for the weekend.
One very colourful visitor to our backyard is Mildred Muscovy. She has a face that only a mother could love, but maybe in Muscovy world, she would win a beauty contest.
I’ll add just a touch more rouge to make her really outstanding and get her noticed by the judges.
Happy weekend, everyone. To join Paula’s Thursday’s Special Challenge, click the link below.
We’ve been having lots of rain here in Florida. The damp conditions seem to deter some of the wildlife from showing up in our backyard, but I was amused to see these two very different creatures standing out there together as if in silent protest.
Hope your weekend isn’t as wet as ours. Every cloud has a silver lining though, as hubby has decided to paint out the garage.

Our backyard is aflutter with birds since we put up the new birdfeeder which hangs on a wire between two palm trees. It’s almost impossible to get photos of the birds actually on it, as I have to go out of the screen room door, and no matter how quietly I try to open it, they always sense my presence and are gone in the blink of an eye. My best option is to lurk by my bathroom window and take a shot as they land on a tree.
We have two pairs of Cardinals who are regular diners at our little restaurant.
The beady-eyed Grackles descend in a gang and completely take over the feeder, whilst the other birds and Sammy squirrel hop around underneath picking up the seeds that fall to the ground.
Hubby and I are very excited to soon be going off on our travels again to England and South Africa. We’ll have happy family reunions and also there’s my Mom-in-Law’s 105th birthday to celebrate in August.
Happy Thursday to you all.
“Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.” ~ Robert H Schuller
A Northern Mockingbird sits atop our neighbour’s ‘Bird of Paradise’ plant.
Last winter, Hubby saved this beautiful plant from destruction. Our neighbour told him that he was going to ask his gardener to dig it out because it had never flowered. Hubby told him to just be patient a while longer because this plant has the most beautiful flowers which would soon appear in the springtime, and sure enough he was right.
We have a particular fondness for this lovely plant which is indigenous to South Africa. It’s proper name is ‘Strelitzia Reginae’, and it’s also known as ‘Crane Flower’.
