Spring is Coming — March 21, 2018

Spring is Coming

Longer days are coming

Bright and sunny early dawns

Nature shrugs off winter

As it stretches and it yawns

Waking from a slumber

Dusting off the gloom

Time to come alive now,

To blossom and to bloom

Spring has brought new outfits

For all the naked trees

Flowers are making pollen

To please the busy bees

Birds are coming home now

It time to meet a mate

It looks like spring is coming

And I for one, can’t wait!

Photography 101: Home — March 7, 2016

Photography 101: Home

As some of you may know, I enrolled myself on the Photography 101 course as my skills are seriously lacking! I do try and take some photos to accompany my posts but they are a bit hit and miss.

The very first thing we have been asked to do is to take a photo of ‘home’ and whatever that means to us. No fancy editing here, just a good old plain photo.

Home

Home to me is my front room. We have quite a small house so it really is the room where I spend most of my time. Home, of course, is also where my family are. Mr Grump and Roxy snuggled up together is a very common sight. Miss Hap is normally up in her room blasting out Justin Bieber songs or something, but I ‘encouraged’ (bribed)  her to be in the photo.

As you can see, she is lolling all over the settee with her phone clamped tightly in her sweaty little mitts! Oh, and the daffies you can see in the photo were an extra Mother’s day prezzie (I got a lovely teddy and also a cushion), she had picked for me  ‘from the roadside’ (I am hoping not to get a bang on the door from an irate neighbour whose garden has been pillaged!)!

 

Waiting for Spring — February 2, 2016

Waiting for Spring

Thistles!

I thought I would join in with Carole’s idea of writing a short poem with spring as the theme.

Longer days are coming

Bright and sunny early dawns

Nature shrugs off winter

As it stretches and it yawns

Waking from a slumber

Dusting off the gloom

Time to come alive now,

To blossom and to bloom

Spring has brought new outfits

For all the naked trees

Flowers are making pollen

To please the busy bees

Birds are coming home now

It time to meet a mate

It looks like spring is coming

And I for one, can’t wait!
