I'm happy to say that the bitter cold weather here has come to an end, and yesterday and today we have had mild temps. It was great to go out for a walk again without freezing.
At TIOT we are starting a new challenge on Tuesday -
👧Mum's the word👧
As always, projects of all formats are welcome, and you have 2 weeks to link to us. I made a hybrid piece using a picture of my Mum taken when she was 2 years old, back in 1918. The clock symbolizes the passing of time, and birds, flowers and butterflies were always things she loved. I have used elements from Serif and me:
Today is also Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday party, so here a warm welcome to all of the nice ladies of the T Gang. Yesterday afternoon my buddy G came over. I baked a crumble filled with home-made strawberry jam and topped with almonds, and it was delicious.
G brought me some beautiful coffee cups which had belonged to his mother, and we enjoyed drinking our cappuccino from them:
After we had fortified ourselves with enough food and drink we went for a walk. The little lakes nearby were all still frozen:
Here a patch is starting to thaw out:
Loved this little hamamelis tree:
(Spell-checker suggested 'shameless' instead of hamamelis!)
Then we saw this huge formation of cranes returning from their winter migration. They timed it perfectly to arrive on the first warmer day. I didn't have time to focus, all I could do was point and shoot - there must have been 200 birds in the formation:
Here I enlarged a part so you can see them better:
We saw several pieces of furniture by the roadside, waiting for the old household-goods collection today:
And then G treated us to chips (fries) and sausage with curry sauce at the Berliner Imbiss, a snack bar. Just yummy.....
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
