what day is it.....?! Days 23 - 26.

Time, as they say, is flying and the days have turned into a bit of a blur just recently.  I haven't been visiting as many blogs as I really want to, and have not been taking anywhere near as many photographs as I would like.  Hopefully things will calm down over the next few days and I'll be able to catch up with everyone.  Fingers crossed!

# 23/365 - I'm sure it's a wasp...

The bottle brush seems to attract as many wasps as bees, and that explains why not every detail is clear in the shot above.  I was standing as far away as possible without using the zoom and I chose this one because of the contrast of colours (including the blues and purples in my blouse!)

# 24/365  - Fresh Garbage

This is a scarf that I bought many, many, many years ago in Fresh Garbage in Belfast, a shop that is just about big enough for a couple of people to browse in at the same time.  At one time I would have bought lots of things for myself from there - indian cotton dresses and scarves, silver jewellry, incense - now I go in to buy presents for the younger generation!  I've had this red & gold scarf for so long and I still use it because I LOVE it, although it's soon going to have to be upcycled into something else, as it is now very worn in places.  I'm not getting rid of it though!

# 25/386 - burning spice in the evening

# 26/365 - beside the forget me nots

Another wildflower, which I haven't identified yet, that has turned up in the little wild patch in the garden.  The flowers are slightly larger than the forget me nots and are very, very pretty. 


  1. I'll hopefully comment properly here, and on your other posts, over the weekend as I'm having problems using my Wordpress identity! Flighty xx

  2. I like your thoughtful captions, and words, which accompany these interesting images! Flighty xx

  3. Flight, thanks for visiting and for your comment. I'm glad that you got your identity sorted out satisfactorily!
