The theme for Becky’s April Squares challenge is ‘top’
- On Top of the World – summit, crown, peak or uppermost part of something
- Under the Big Top – topping or covering (or if you’re really lucky circus)
- Room at the Top – first or highest in position
- Cherry on Top – something made even more wonderful by becoming square
- 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 notch / top-notch (adjective) – If you describe someone or something as top–notch, you mean that they are of a very high standard or quality.
Head reliquary of St Eustace (1180 – 1200) and wooden core; silver-gilt repoussé head with gem-set filigree circlet binding straight hair; nine gems composed of varieties of quartz (rock crystal, chalcedony, amethyst, carnelian), two of aragonite (pearl, mother of pearl), one of obsidian and six of glass. Supported by fully carved wooden core also in shape of head, top of which forms lid of hollow compartment for relics. (British Museum)

Well we might both have top notch, but yours is much more splendid.
But both kind of off the wall! Did the pingback appear today?
Pingback worked perfectly today 😀 I wish the WP gremlins were more logical
I haven’t tried commenting on any blogs today yet. Except yours.
Fingers crossed you stay safe and don’t end up like a fritter in the spam folder!
A most unusual choice for the theme, Jude. 🙂
Best wishes, Pete. x
Unusual in a good way?
Of course. 🙂
Fabulous, I’ve never seen anything like that before.
Impressive! And tricky to photograph? 🙂 🙂
This was when I ran into problems with the SD card and could only take extremely small Web images otherwise I’d have run out of space!
Very top notch!
Very impressive. I haven’t heard of St Eustace so I looked him up. Like most saints, he came to a ghastly end.
