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

Things with the letter C

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.

Still life shot of various vegetables set out on a slate Cheeseboard, some onions (white and red), a tomato, a cut Cabbage and the return of one of those Carrots we saw earlier

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!
