Tucked away in a back street , behind the Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia, in Barcelona, I found this striking sculpture. I don’t remember there being any information, so I have no idea who created it, I just like it!
A sort of sparkly, circular spiral in my square for Becky.
Amber PalaceLast night I watched treasures of the Indus and was inspired to look for an image of India for my March Square. This is a ceiling in the Amber palace, Jaipur.
I often say this of India, I wish I could go back with a better camera and slightly improved skills.
Twelve days left to join Becky’s square challenge!
I’m always pleased to catch a bike photo, this one was taken in town on Friday after the rain. I love the little basket of artificial flowers bringing a touch of sunshine.
So some circles for Becky, triangles too inside the square. There’s still time to join in, she has thrown a few dice here.
Next to mine own Shippe
I do love most
that old Shippe
in Exon a tavern
in St Martins lane
These are the words of Sir Francis Drake, a sea captain and slave trader, he carried out the second circumnavigation of the world in 1577 – 1580. In 1588 he helped defeat the Spanish Armada, but only after he’d finished his game of bowls on Plymouth Hoe. His home in Devon, Buckland Abbey is owned by the National Trust.
The Ship Inn pub is now sadly part of a chain but it still retains it’s character, who knows maybe Sir Francis still visits. This post is for Paula’s Thursday Special, Traces of the past, she has a beautiful photo of lake Bled this week.
Flora and George are uncertain how they feel about snow. So if in doubt, just bark at it!
There’s still time to join B with March squares with squares or circles!
Well I didn’t think I’d be posting such a wintry square this far into March, but the view of the circle from my window made it a must.
I don’t think Becky has any snow today, she does have a moving memorial though.
Oh, to be in England
Now that April’s there,
And whoever wakes in England
Sees, some morning, unaware,
That the lowest boughs and the brushwood sheaf
Round the elm-tree bole are in tiny leaf,
While the chaffinch sings on the orchard bough
In England – now!
There’s still two weeks to go to April, and its’snowing heavily today. I’ve just got in from a dog walk, chilled and damp, so I’ll happily laze the afternoon away. I have two books and some crochet on the go, I made orange polenta cake yesterday and I could even try to finish the poem I began.
You all know I love to travel, to anywhere hot, but there’s something very wonderful about England in spring. This snow should be gone by tomorrow and I live in the loveliest place on our planet, have a look, click to see a slide show, maybe you’ll agree.
So I’m thinking about this year’s holidays, because I crave experiencing different cultures, but right now there’s nowhere I’d rather be, but right where I am.
Well it’s St Patricks day and my mother Pat’s 80th birthday. I’m sure she’ll see this eventually so have a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY from G!
Apart from being green today’s square is nothing to do with St Patrick, but it does have a circle.
Becky’s looking upstairs to her circle today, but I don’t know where!
I had the chance to pop into town today, so armed with phone i kept my squares eyes for any images that you might like. I’ve tried to photograph this mosaic before, but in the evening in poor light. Today it worked okay.
Isn’t it pretty? Do you have square eyes this month to join in with Becky? She likes circles inside squares too, if you look hard enough there are some here!
We’re half way through March and Becky’s addictive square challenge and I hope she likes my number 15.
This round, curvy lady is in Santa Maria Assunta, Siena.
You can join Becky here, and see the bee’s knees.
