Crazy Paving

#fowc #Crazy

Crazy Paving (By Inky)

Colourful trail leading up the garden path

rocky slabs laid at really strange angles

at first, you might think – some mad

zany designer had taken a hammer to your pavement, but

you would be wrong – each

piece has been placed on purpose

as you look carefully – each bit of stone comes into

view as part of the picture as a whole

in time you’ll spot a scene as the pieces come together

navigating their way down the garden, and

greeting visitors – welcome to our house!

Nebulous

Salford 19 September 2019

#fowc #nebulous

Noted – you’re in a bit of a haze over this…but

every cloud has its silver lining

born out of a culinary experiment that went amiss

up to the adding of the popping candy, everything

looked fine – till the batter mix leaped

out of the pan and landed on the ceiling

up you look, as a cosmic array appears above

should you leave it there ? or clean it up ? – That’s up to you.

“Eyecatching”

Roses to Catch the eye….by Brian F Kirkham

They say Diamonds are a girls best friend
but a floral bouquet always catches her eye
brightly coloured tokens
from a friend or significant other
always brings a smile
if not the tongues wagging in the office

The Arrival Of The Snowmen

Salford Quays,  22nd November 2018

Christmas is coming……

We might be in November, but we’ve had a bit of festive decoration arrive on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal today

Four Calling Birds



A number of brightly decorated snowmen, have found themselves stood around and about in locations at Salford Quays.   From The Lowry to Mediacity UK,  They’re all based around Raymond Briggs’ original fun character and have been decorated by local children and young people in the area.

Its Been a buzzy few months for local artworks as previously we had Bee in the City land in Salford as part of the Hive in Manchester.  When they flew to pastures new, the Snowmen paid us a visit.  While the Bees raised money for the We Love Manchester Fund, This time all funds will go to BBC Children in need 

Feel free to comment on the snowmen I’ve captured….I’ll post more as and when i find them.

brought out of the hive

everyone is smiling at them…

each one bringing colour to the street

if you walk  through the city, you’ll see

numbers of them by

the terraced areas of the city, their

hive now used by the residents to soak up the sun

each bee happy of the attention they get

Congregated in well known areas, the

Insects bring a smile to

Those who pass by,

Yelling to the youngsters – “You al’right our kid” ?

Colourful

Colorful

could it be, the first signs of spring

out of all the signs of Mother Nature that

leap out at us,

of all those signs, green leaves appear and

radiant colours join them in the

form of beautiful blossoms … whilst

underneath them ?

luscious fruits

Vivid Violet

#Coloryourworld #cyw #vividviolet #violet

Very striking – you stand out in a crowd

In fact, your flower heads  offset the other colours in the border, from the

Orange of the marigolds surrounding your stem or the

Lemon yellows of the pansies nearby

Everyone in the garden, enjoys your colourful view, as

They pass you walking on the garden path
