Day Nineteen

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 Dog

This wonderfully carved piece is the Queen of the Lewis Chessmen or Uig Chessmen, named after the island or the bay where they were found, a group of distinctive 12th-century chess pieces, along with other game pieces, most of which are carved from walrus ivory. Seen here in a British Museum blog.

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. These square challenges are a good way to nip into the archives and find some photos that have never quite made it onto the blog. Although this photo has been shown before.
