Week 22 ~ In Bloom

What's in bloom in my garden and my house
Not much blooming yet.... except for fields of forget-me-nots, a few straggling magnolia blossoms, the beginning of the johnny jump ups and an endless sea of dandelions

I forgot my red orchid last week and the white one wanted a cameo... I also have a crown of thorns which also blooms most of the time

No pictures of the hanging baskets I bought two weeks ago as I did nothing but buy them!

Week 21 ~ What I do most mornings after I drink my coffee!

Sleep... on the bed right beside the blankie that is on the bed for me to sleep on  & yes I do like coffee!

Now if you want to know what my slave does.. she empties her kiln of all the 'pretties' that have been annealing overnight

Except Sunday mornings she waters my orchids

Week 20 ~The View About the Ground

Cacti garden in Santa Cruz de Tenerife  The park was right next door to the hotel.. spent our time wondering around the garden instead of shopping which suited my husband just fine!

Hotel Pool on Costa Adeje, Tenerife...  took forever to get this picture with no people in it!

Swiss Alps heading home.....  Really gotta love the airlines and going places every flight we got on we went two hours the wrong way to get anywhere....

WEEK 19 ~ Good Things Inside

Since it's actually trying to be spring here I couldn't think  of anything more appropriate for this weeks prompt than flower buds opening
My Daffodils (guess they are technically narcissus)
Does anyone know what this tree/flower is.. they were growing in Tenerife  the flower buds look like upside down bunches of bananas.

Week 18 ~ In Your Hands

What happened to April.. It's already May 2nd.....

OK so these aren't actually in anyone's hand(s) but they should be since they are wine glasses....  This 'chandelier' was in a bar in Islay  I've never seen a light fixture made out of rose coloured wine glasses before!
Chandelier made from wine glasses... the light is a single bulb. Really a stunning fixture!

A more traditional use of  a wine glass
Same bar as the chandelier... but the glasses they serve with their wine aren't pink....
A different bar.. this is actually a pub in Wales...  My husband is cracking pistachio nuts with the iron window hardware.... I was hoping no-one was watching...
I was forced to make a crack to the effect that
 'Monkey's can be trained to use tools....'
