Midweek post

Hi Everybody!

Today I have something fishy to share with you again - a mermaid face. Her hair is like seaweed and the fishes swim round her every day. I am linking to Mia's challenge at AJJ and to Rain's TAD:








Some evening photos from my balcony:





The field behind our garden has been left to grow wild - good for the bees:



And some funnies:









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

  3. Oh I love the fishy woman and love that she is green. She is very fun, right down to her seaweed hair. and the field looks very bee friendly. Right now my asparagus plants are flowering and they are full of noisy bees. It is great. And thanks for the funnies. Hope it was a nice first day of summer. hugs-Erika

  8. M is the letter today, with mermaids, magpies and mirth. Great job, Valerie. I must say that this is the first mermaid I have seen wearing a dress, so perhaps a society for feminine modesty, or some group of religious fanatics dedicated to female purity, invaded the oceans and imposed a dress code. Every sailor will be very disappointed, I can assure you of that! I am happy to see many fishes swimming around, given the sad truth that so many regions and zones of the oceans have been fished almost to extinction. If there is a way to overexploit, pollute and destroy we humans are always up to the task and will get the job done. I had a really good chuckle at the water left out for the dogs. I can easily imagine some toddler taking a drink! Given recent experience, I am wondering whether this comment will find its way to your blog or be immediately whisked into spam? We'll see, I suppose. Hugs and kisses, David

    1. A lot of farmers are doing this now. They get a small compensation from the government for planting bee meadows.

  18. Love your green lady. Her hair is inspired and the fish swimming around are lovely, especially the one top left, something about it reminds me of a seahorse in the face.

  22. A mermaid who figured out how to keep her dress dry ... so clever. Valerie, your art is so creative ... where in your brain do you pull out your wonderful ideas and then have the talent to put them on paper. Your make me smile and then I smile again at your awesome views from your window and then again at your humor (LOL). I especially like the sign by the bucket of water ... Ha! "We don't Judge" ... hmmm! So I know we live far apart, but I would love to spend a day with you. I can only imagine the fun we would have :)
