New challenge at Tag Tuesday

Hi Everybody!

Hope your week got off to a good start!

Today we are staring a new challenge at Tag Tuesday, and this time our lovely Michele is hosting with the theme 
-Faery Garden-
As always, you have 2 weeks to link to us, and tags of all formats are welcome. Hope to see YOU there!
Michele made 2 beautiful and inspiring tags which you can see on our blog.

I made a magical, winter scene:



Some walking pictures:





I found the first snowdrops, but no snow:





Some green in a neighbour's garden:



And I saw another coypu/muskrat by the old mill in Kalkum:




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

  12. I thought that the faeries looked like little angels, so I was sure this post was about me, especially when I saw the Snowy Owl in the picture, and then I realized they were all girls. I think I must go immediately to the anti-discrimination league since there are no faeries of male persuasion included. I could say that I will sulk for the rest of the day, but in reality I will quickly get over it! Nice job with the tag, Valerie, unisexual though it may be! It must be lovely to have snowdrops already and the coypu looks like it has no difficulty finding food. Yesterday was quite dreary here, very grey, with a bit of a bite to the wind. I must say, however, that we have had bright sunny snowy days of late so one bad day is not to be complained about too much. And Miriam and I made a wonderful dinner, opened a bottle of wine and lit the candles, so it was bright and cheerful inside. Today looks a little drab still, but the vivid red of a cardinal in the yard adds zip to the day instantly. January is almost half over. Can you believe it? Hugs and kisses. David

    1. Hi David! I'm trying to imagine you dresses as a fairy! I will see what I can manage in my next tag.... There are a lot of coypus here, I love watching them, but farmers are always complaining about the damage they do. They would love to get rid of them all. Here is cold and grey today, too, with copious amounts of rain. Glad you both enjoyed a wonderful dinner and some wine. I wish we had cardinals here. Time flies! Hugs to you both, Valerie

    2. Oh, gosh! Look who's dreaming now! David đŸ€·‍♂️ ... as an angel? LOL 😂
      Thank you for making me laugh! Hugs to you both! đŸ€—

  13. Sweet page. The snowdrops would make perfect flowers for it, too. They are so pretty. The muskrat is a big fellow. You almost can't tell front from the back because he's so fluffy! Take care.

  25. Beautiful tag,and I always enjoy your walk photos I have never seen a muskrat before.

  26. Valerie your tag is so pretty, I love it! You can almost feel the cold in you walk photos, it's pretty chilly here today too, but it's wet and very miserable. I've never seen a coypu either, but there was a piece on the news yesterday that rats are taking over the city centres due to lockdown. I hope this was just sensationalism - I'm not a fan of rats! Take care and have a great day, Sue xx
