To be found around a tree in Heavitree Fore Street, this was part of an improvement plan for the area a few years ago. I’m posting for Paula’s Thursday Special.
Have a lovely week everyone 🙂
It looks a bit like that doesn’t it?
But of course it’s a sculpture, to be found in the Uffizi in Florence.
Paula’s black and white Sunday prompt last week was ‘texture’, but I’m a day late to the party, such is life. So I’m not going to link to her, you know where to find her and she has enough to do without dealing with latecomers 🙂
Cheeky moi? No way,
Honestly, they made me do it!
Just because I think it’s pretty.
I had a lovely lunchtime encounter today. Over in the main hospital concourse was a stand promoting and raising awareness of organ donation, and these two beaming gentlemen greeted me.They didn’t need to convert me, if any bits of me are useful after I’ve popped my clogs that’s fine by me, share me around. If you’re not already on the donor register, check it out here and sign up if you can.
Now, I missed any shouting about it that the town crier did, but he and his buddy were happy to chat and have their photos taken. Apparently Roger Bourgein, who is the Exmouth Town Crier, does around 200 events a year and earns a pittance doing so!
Here he is in all his regalia, what a lovely smile.
Thanks guys for brightening up my lunch break, keep doing what you’re doing.
I’ve missed a few of my favourite challenges recently, including Paula’s Black and White Sunday, but I can’t resist texture, so I’m squeezing a few minutes to share this photo.
Plants aren’t something I’d usually pick for black and white and a butterfly, never before, but I think it works, do you?
When I was little Waltons was a shop in Exeter that had the most wonderful Christmas displays. You walked through an area of display windows that seemed really big at the time. Each window was more magical then the one before, and waiting at the end was Father Christmas, in his red coat and with a real white beard. In those less commercial days it was one of the very best things about Christmas.
There are still displays like Waltons, often found in garden centres, and Keydells has multiplied the magic many times over. Look at all these Santas!
And their visitors,
