It’s your choice!

Partake

Life is a long branch of events and choices

some shy away from making decisions

whilst others grab the bull by the horns

climbing the rockface

or in some cases – jumping off it

 

So – when it comes down to it

the decisions you make are yours

will you dip your toes in the shark infested sea

or play russian roulette with crusty crustaceans on the beach ?

all those decisions – are down to you

My “little” Acer tree, in the back garden of the house

beginning another set of flowers to signal Spring

We bought it from a garden centre in the pennines , quite a few years ago now, and planted it alongside a couple of dwarf conifers and perennials to give the back of the house a bit of colour!

It was caught out by a really hard frost and snowfall in March, when it should have flowered then.  The mercury in the thermometer refused to budge, so it slept on till the Easter Holiday, and while i celebrated my birthday – one or two of the flowering buds popped out to say “Hello!”.  Soon it’ll be covered in lovely pink and white flowers, and (Northwest English Weather permitting) they’ll be there to brighten up the back garden all the way through summer and early autumn – when it’ll lose its foliage and it’ll prepare itself for the following spring.

Salford (via Navagio Beach) , 22nd February 2018

 

White Sandy beaches,

Offset by clear blue sea

Navigated rusted boat sat by the cliffside

Down where the anchor should be

Encrusted with Barnacles and other sea creatures

Rock formations , home to a multitude of life

From strings of mussels to hermit crabs

Unless someone picks them up – they’ll sleep away in the sun

Looking around when its time for tea
