Wednesday Post

Hi Everybody!

Today I have another quick face to share.
The lovely quote is from Winston Churchill.
I used a lumocolor permanent pen, Pitt pens and a 6B pencil

I made these tags to accompany some muffins I gave
to neighbours. I am linking to Tag Tuesday
anything goes. You have till next Monday at midnight
 to enter the challenge, and there will be a prize:

The rose was blooming in the hospital gardens:

A beautiful sunrise

Morning visitors waiting for me to fill
the feeder:

The gulls by the Rhine:

And these photos were taken on this day
one year ago - blue skies and no high water:

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
