Week 34 of 52 Weeks Word Photo Challenge

Hallo everyone.

First I must sincerely thank all of you for your kind comments last week.  I do appreciate them, I am sorry that I have not been able to get back to any of you personally yet, but give me a littler time!

I am feeling much better, though I must admit ruefully, that I am not yet out of the woods. If i should suddenly disappear from here, I think it will be because I am in hospital. So far I have fought that off, but it may still happen.  Lungs are very contrary creatures when they want to be!!

But enough of that, I'm here to show you my "trio" for week 34.

Here she is:



Here's a trio of flowers for you, a thing that I do when I have nothing else to do - not very often!!

So there we are for this week - join in below with your photo so we can see how you interpreted our clever word!!

I'll see you all tomorrow evening for next week's word.

Bloglovin" Has Lost Me!


Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I don't know what happened, but I had to do a post and put this bit above, so I hope this works!  I just thought I would have a look at my Bloglovin' and found this problem.     Think I'll go back to bed!

I'm just dropping by to explain that I have been unwell these past few days and would like to continue this weeks word "trio" until next Sunday evening.

I'm very sorry, but these silly old lungs are unhappy again!

Thank you.

I will be back next week, in the meantime have a great week and take care won't you

Spring Has Sprung!

2nd Day of Spring! and also the hottest day we have had here since last Summer!!

"And what were you doing? "  you might ask.

And I would answer "Why, gardening, of course!!"  How stupid are we? No, don't answer that!

But here are a few garden pics of what we have done today (in 29 degree heat also!!)(hot and sweaty and dirty and and...

Here we go :-


So this view is to show what an absolute mess we are in at the moment! We are moving all the furniture around in the hut, because I need to get to the surrounding gardens and give them a big clean up.  Alan also is going to oil the decking and give the hut a good spruce up for Summer.


Here is the poor old fish pond - needs some TLC also, but i have planted up these lovely geraniums to sit around it!


View of the garden we are working in - some new ferns and bromeliads planted. and a good watering to settle everybody in.


Wedding Palm needs some of these ferns removed and put onto boards, before they fall off and get eaten by the hungry bromeliads below!!


Our young stag fern is beginning to sprout some more fronds - he should grow really fast this year.  Hope we never need to replace the fence 'cos it ain't gonna happen!!

All in all, we did have a very productive day in the garden today even though I nearly melted!  Hopefully everything will be ship shape for Summer, though I do hope we get some more cooler weather between now and then!

Our hut is really taking a beating this Spring, as we have a pair of Turtle Doves nesting inside the foliage of our Golden Cane Palm, and each morning they come out and sit in the hut and do their birdy business! I suppose we can live with it, but boy, do they make a mess!

hope everyone is well, have a good week and take care

52 Weeks Word Photo Challenge

welcome back everyone!  I had such a busy week just gone, with doctors appointments and such, that I never thought about blogging.

From here on, life should become a little less hectic, and I will be able to post a bit more through the week.  I hope...........remember, the best set plans! (especially in this house)LOL

Anyhows, here we are for our show n tell for "cotton", so without further ado, let's begin:-


Here is my picture for the word "cottton".  As a quilter, I use a lot of cotton fabric, and here is just a small show of different cottons and what can be done with them.  I also use cotton fabrics for my embroidery, they are very easy to work with and you can always find the pattern and the colour you want..
They are made from a natural plant fibre, so are biodegradable and safe for our planet. (I'm not so sure about some of the dyes used though!!

I hope you like my picture of cotton, and i look forward to seeing yours in our Linky tool below - don't be shy, join in at any time, I promise noeone will laugh at you!!!

See you all again tomorrow evening for our new weekly word.

Take care

Another interesting one!  I'll see you later in the week!  Don't forget, you can join in at any time, just post your photo!
