52 Weeks Word Photo Challenge

Oh boy, we are just so out of whack with these 52 weeks, I do apologize!

I have been in hospital in CCU, so the less said about that, the better!  I'm back for now and i have really missed your   pictures, so here is the weeks word:- "match".

I do hope you like that one, I do!!

See you all next Sunday evening with our photographic interpretation (like that one?) of our weekly word.

Remember, join in at any time with us and have some fun!!

Have a nice week and take care.

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.

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

Thank 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
