Day Twenty-Four

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!
Cherry on Top “Boo”

An old photo of my daughter-in-law with baby Lorenzo (who turns six today) chicken watching in her mother’s garden in Raglan, New Zealand and watched over by the wonderful realistic scarecrow. And for those of you with keen eyes you will have spotted the veggies under cover to protect them from the chickens.

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. oh this is such a lovely photograph, a very happy Birthday to her today. Hope you have been able to skype or zoom

      1. oops, sorry Lorenzo . . . . and how fabulous . . a day on the bike. Exactly how to spend your 6th birthday 😀

    1. He’s quite a live wire considering he was born 5 weeks early and weighed only 1.2 kg. In this photo he was 8 months old.

      1. Oh, huge fellow feeling. Our granddaughter was born at 28 weeks, and weighed even less. How lovely that both are doing well now (Zoe’s 18 months) after a rocky beginning.

        1. Little miracles! He had stopped growing at 30 weeks apparently. He’s still small for his age, but perfectly formed!

    1. Spoke to his dad, busy getting new house ready, but he’s been stood down so not the best time to have bought a house!
