Day Twelve

The theme for Becky’s  April Squares challenge is ‘top’ 

    1. On Top of the World – summit, crown, peak or uppermost part of something
    2. Under the Big Top – topping or covering (or if you’re really lucky circus)
    3. Room at the Top – first or highest in position
    4. Cherry on Top – something made even more wonderful by becoming square
    5. Top and Tail – or maybe you’d prefer to play around with word combinations such as top dog, top stitch, top full, top line, top fruit, top hat, top secret, top knot, top drawer and top dollar!
 “top of the morning to you”

“And the rest of the day to you

April Squares | Day Twelve

Published by


I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. Caught this sunrise this morning. I’m not a sunrise person, but the bloody cattle next door kept me awake most of the night and I saw these colours as I went downstairs to make a cup of hot chocolate! Of course, red sky in the morning = shepherds take warning and the cloud came in shortly afterwards.

      1. Now who’s complaining about the weather? It’s overcast here now too but I’m up on the roof watching the washing dry. On the phone your image looks like a rather nice bottle with a rosy glow. And no, I haven’t been drinking yet 😅🍷🍾💕

        1. No complaints from me, just stating a fact. The cloud did pass by the mid afternoon and it was still wind free so I got a bit more gardening done. All the pellies moved outdoors from the conservatory. They’ll get a bit of a shock as it is forecast to be cooler tomorrow. I shall repot some of them in due course.

      2. I guess the farmer has separated the weaners from their mums… you’re glad you got up early for a wonderful sunrise

    1. I shall be over to see yours in a minute. Spent all afternoon in the garden and shifting pots outdoors, just in time for the weather to turn cooler! Oh, well.

      1. Much better than hunched over your computer. I didn’t get gardening supplies organised before Lock Down, and the self-promised reorganisation is having difficulty happening.

    1. PS No idea why but your pingback is not appearing on my post today, and it is not in spam. I have noticed over the past 24hrs that comments and pingbacks have dropped significantly. It seems to happen every Squares for a short period. I have tested your link in your post and it works perfectly so goodness knows what WP are doing with them . . .

  1. That looks so beautiful and serene (obviously I can’t hear the cows). We could do with more red sky mornings — still in drought here.

    1. And after all those months of rain I am having to water the garden! Why can’t we have weather in moderation?
