DP Weekly Photo Challenge – Admiration



Admiration or just Faithfull …..I suspect both.  My friend Andrew with his two Bernese Mountain Dogs , Lara and Gretel with my rather dwarfed Buster.

All three secure my admiration for just how well they all relate to each other and even tolerate us humans.

Just an idea for this weeks DP Photo Challenge. See what others have submitted on:-

Little Blue Gems…..


Cannot tell you what these little gems are called. The flower head is not quite a centimetre across with ever so tiny yellow stamens at its centre. Each flower is carried on the end of a long fragile stem.

How they came to be in our garden I do not know, we haven’t planted them, are they self seeded via the birds ?…it is a mystery but also a nice little surprise.

It is also the last day of April….so if the words of the country rhyme are correct we can look forward to more floral delights….

“April Showers bring forth May Flowers”

and there is no doubt that we have had plenty of April Showers.
