Blossoms…having reverted to rather chilly mornings having blossoms as the travel theme this week brought me back, if only in my dreams, to the softer days of spring. I am missing them. Last week my fire died, well the flue part of it, and I am waiting on it to be repaired, keeping my fingers crossed the temperatures don’t drop any further until it is.
I would really love your help identifying some of these. I do love flowers, and grow a few but am hopeless when it comes to knowing what it is I have half the time.
A song from my wayward youth…by Deep Purple…goodness how this brings back memories. Ones I am in no way sharing with you lot !!!!
I admit it…I have added a couple of older images here…but they are soooooo PURPLE !!!!
And who among you remember this song? I used to pray that one day I would meet such a fearsome creature in my travels. I mean the purple people eater used to rock from the horn in his head and sing ‘bam boom’, that is pretty cool ! I figured I was safe as I wasn’t purple.
I found this community busy outside by my front steps. Hours later and lots of photos taken…only one image comes even close to making me happy. Well – no, not happy – but at least it shows what I was trying to do. Back to the drawing board I guess.
And now…for something completely off track.
I read about this during the week, and would really like your opinion. People are pouring aluminum down ant hills to make art. With the poor old ants in residence.
I was taken aback to say the least…okay they may be ants…and at times they are annoying, but seriously. This is cruelty right ???
Here is a video of a scientist doing just that. It seems to me that even for science there must be better ways to study ants than to pour molten aluminum over them.
