Not so Lonely Petunia


When I saw this bed of Petunias, I was reminded of the children song ‘I’m a lonely little Petunia in an onion patch’, and now I can’t get it out of my head!

These Petunias are not so lonely but I do wonder about those ominous shadows advancing on them 🙂

Let Me Out of Here!


Guess we all know just how poor Dora feels, especially in the hectic lead-up to Christmas 😦

At least she’s still smiling 🙂

Lots of Toys


Being a grandma means playing with lots of toys and watching ABC for Kids 🙂

Slippery Slide


Oh, to be a child again 🙂

The Playground


Hope this inspires a great story or poem 🙂

Or Vice Versa!


When my children were younger they would have run up without a thought leaving me way behind!

Of course, they mean very small children but even they seem leaps and bounds ahead with some of the things they say and do!

A Beautiful Gift

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA  ??????????????????????

Today’s prompt…

As always we were given many wonderful gifts this Christmas including this very beautiful one from my daughter Jess and partner Jodi.

Fifty-five children wil be immunised from measles and given a better chance at life 🙂

The Drinking Fountain

Today’s prompt…

…brings me back to my childhood and the rows of bubble taps we used. Many of us had a plastic bottle in our lunch boxes filled with cordial (frozen for summer) but fruit boxes were unheard of and soft drink only for special treats.
