We had a very wild, wet and windy weekend, and it doesn't look much different today, although the sun is trying to come through. I visited a friend on Saturday, and after taking the tram to the centre of Düsseldorf, decided to walk the rest of the way, over the bridge, which was a mistake. It was so windy I had to hold onto the railing with one hand and my cap with the other one, so was happy to get to the other side in one piece, although I was not able to take my usual photos. But I was rewarded with some wonderful food and hot coffee when I arrived, so that was good.
On Tuesday we are starting a new challenge at Tag Tuesday, and this time our lovely Wendy is hosting. She has chosen 'Mushrooms / fungi' as her theme. This is a theme I usually associate with autumn, so my fantasy tag is set in this season. The background is one of my photos, other elements are from Serif :
Hope to see lots of you joining in the challenge.
It's also time for Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday meeting, so here a warm welcome to all of the nice ladies of the T Gang. I am re-showing a piece I made a couple of years back using a mix of photos and drawings:
The photos were taken on my Friday walk after yet another doctor's appointment. I have 2 more coming up this week:
It was wild and windy, but nowhere near as bad as on Saturday:
The daffodils and snowdrops around the castle are sprouting:
The gates of heaven?
In a neighbour's garden:
This house always has flowers in the porch:
On Saturday N and I wanted to visit the art academy to see the exhibition of the students' pictures. We traveled by tram to avoid the windy bridge. This is a permanent installation in the little subway between the tram station and the academy, thousands of glass slides:
The view of the academy through the rain:
The queue waiting to get in was so long we went for a coffee in the Altstadt instead:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
