Big Wide World

Salford 4th April 2018

The world is immense – to most people

Over the water there’s places you’ve never been to

During your lifetime – you’ll experience many a new thing

Daffodils won’t be the only flower you chomp on as you

Let your little toes explore the water (with mum and dad’s help)

Enjoying the nice warm sand in a place thats new whilst

Relaxing under a colourful umbrella.

Mother’s Day

Salford 11th March 2018

it was Mothering Sunday today,

and I have had the annual dilemma on what to get my mum for her mother’s day pressie

in the end, I plumped for some flowers and chocolates

(mum was happy with them!)

Flowers in the nao San Rafael suite, in the algarve

plenty of flowers 💐 in this Portuguese resort, but they are eclipsed by some really tall trees.  Fellow ursinians would appreciate these, though I’ve seen more tropical birds than honeybees.

Soil (II)

An acrostic by inky, in response to the daily post prompt

Soil

Some people – call it the ground

One of natures building blocks

If you looked at it – from deep below – you would call it

Life itself

 

Several different creatures – they call it home

On occasion , they climb out of their earthy house for a drop of sun

Insects , worms and nocturnal mammals

Like living underground

 

Some plants – enjoy being

Outside, like trees and bushes, whilst others like

Indoors, mostly because of the weather – all are

Linked by the substance around their roots

hanging off the arms of the tree

a sign of things to come

pink and white blooms send a message

to all who walk around it

cheering as the children play

the apples 🍎 are coming on their way!

Starting off with a Colourful one, taken at a session of the photography group Basic Clicks – Six Colourful Carrots on Blue Canvas!

here’s a couple of interesting Cutlery pieces – the first is of four forks against a wall,  – i liked the shadows created in this pic.

Combination of ideas here, with a twist – Spirals of Cutlery , set on canvas.

Now fellow wordpressors might have seen this one before, but as its cees photochallenge, i thought i’d put it on here – not for the wonderful bridge (that’s the wrong letter folks!!!) but for those fluffy white marshmallow clouds , over looking the quayside at Salford, attached to the Manchester ship Canal.

Last but not least, here’s a close up of a cornflower – i like this one because of the colour!

Fragrance

fragrance
Salford 25th July 2017

 

For centuries, the makers of perfume have made

Romantic smells from the humble garden

Animated – and captured with oils wine and water

Girls grab their latest favourite – in an attempt to

Reach out – without a step – to the lad of their dreams

Attraction can be immediate – turning heads

Never think that it’s the scent alone that does it –

Cupid’s arrow is fickle at times – but

Every girl knows – to get his attention – it’s a start!

I love it when the apple trees are in bloom

pink-white blossoms hang around the green

they give the tree a certain appeal

and look as if they’re dancing in a gentle breeze

drifting slowly in the air

gently floating onto carpets of green

creating colourful patterns on the front lawn

A Flowery San-San

In a porcelain pot

sits some stripy pink flowers

in a group – there’s a lot

passing the hours

positioned in centre of table at a meal

by the chef and his team who are more than able

to show off their wares and create a feel
