Thursday Trios – Sorry for the Delay

away last week and working like crazy this week to get the house ready for my big 70 birthday

I wanted to post something a little different for Thursday Trios this week but I’m physically exhausted. This is the best I could come up with. Hopefully you’re having more luck finding trios this week. I need your inspiration. Please share.

A trio of holes
A trio of milkweed pods

If you’d like me to comment on your trios please copy the link from this post and copy it into your own post. I’ll get a pingback and after the weekend, if not sooner, I’ll get back to you.

An Explosion of Wacky Birds

….not literally

This week it’s been so hot that my husband didn’t think he could come up with a wacky bird. He decided to do a very quick sketch and apply watercolour without too much detail. When he finished the first painting he was so pleased with how quickly it came together and he decided to make another one. He ended up making four wacky birds in total and quickly realized that his inner Quentin Blake had been summoned. If you’re a fan of Roald Dahl books you’ll know what I mean.


August Photo a Day Challenge – Aug. 25 – Lighthouse

…thanks to City Sonnet for hosting the August Photo a Day Challenge

Todays prompt is lighthouse. Christian Island, where my cottage resides has its own lighthouse on the southern tip of the island. It is still operational but now it no longer employs a lighthouse keeper.fullsizeoutput-70ea

The first photo is the entrance to an ancient Roman bath in Fiesole, just outside the city of Florence, Italy. The second photo is the entrance to the museum in Fiesole and the third photo was taken in Assisi, by the basilica of Saint Francis.
