Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections but this week is a random selection.
We'll start with "happy happy oh joy"; my daffodils, which I'd thought stolen, (ooops, sorry, I was wrong) have made a surprise reappearance. Little green spikes, strappy green leaves, I can hardly wait for the blooms.
little green spikes. look in the top left corner. see that fuzzy hair?
it's Angel. he was sniffing at the camera, and here he was distracted by someone walking in the driveway.
more little green spikes, a little out of focus, but still a welcome sight.
I'm hoping all of the 14 bulbs I planted two years ago will come up.
this is an outdoor lift cage at a construction site in the city
I watched it going up...
and down, for quite some time, while waiting for the bank to open.
this old stump is just inside the fence of our Waite Arboreum, next to one of the bus stops I use to get to my nearest BigW store.
I love the weathering and slow decay
those grooves look like they've been made by a comb
I often think of it when I think of fairies, this stump seems a perfect home for them
and now, something to make you smile. remember when your children were very young and couldn't say beautiful? They'd say boofle, right?
well, let me introduce: Boofle:
he showed up first on greeting cards:
Boofle xxx made with 100% love and cuddles (oh and lots of yarn and a little button!)
here is what the blurb says:
Grandad's woolly cardy had seen better days, it was still soft and cosy, but a little bit frayed.
There were holes in the elbows and just one button remained, but from this, Nanny was sure something else could be made.
So she started to sew on that cold winter's night, and Boofle was born, much to the children's delight.
Boofle was all that a snugglesome pup should be, lovable and cuddly and a best friend to you and me.
by David Blake
I first met Boofle on this card, given to me by one of my best friends, when I was leaving Coles
look at that sweet little 'crying' face, it made me cry too.
now Boofle is on coffee mugs too
this one says: Time for a Cuppa, as you can plainly see,
and this one says: I wish I was still in bed
There are many other designs, including one that says Greatest Best Friend Ever, but these were on sale, half price, and when I went back for it, it was gone :(
