Smash it up

Becky’s Square Photo Challenge #SquareUp

Yes smash it up. This is a bit of a sad place in the garden. The place where broken bird baths of the past come to their almost final resting place. One day they may find their way into the bottom of pot plants do aid drainage. Perhaps I could glue them back together. Some may find their way into a pothole on my road as extra fill.

I hope you enjoy the song for the post

Which photo do you like as I could not decide

Pump it up

Becky’s Square Photo Challenge: #SquareUp

When this song first came out, I wasn’t all that keen but try not to dance, even if it’s in you chair being active for a moment or two….c’mon get your party started…..get your booty on the bus now….make my day

Speaking of being pumped up, look at the legs on this Teddy Bear Bee. I know………cute name for such a muscular bloke but they are quite OK at being who they are. They are a solitary bee is the Teddy Bear Bee, and they make their nest in the ground like other Australian native bees. On my blog there is always Blue-banded Bees somewhere.

Grandfather and Ben

Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge: Pet Pampering

There was often talk
of Grandfather and Ben.
Never a better pet,
was said far and wide.
Ben could do
what no other could
but rarely
left Grandfathers side
pampered.
After a time
both could not do
what needed doing
on the farm.
Everyone loved to visit
Grandfather and Ben
have a cuppa
a bit of a yarn
always in the kitchen
in Summer
and in the lounge
which was the
comfy chair drawn close
to the stove
in Winter.
both pampered
It was towards
Summer, I remember
when a few
of the family
knocked the door
of Grandfather and Ben.
Grandfather they called
we have to talk
How long have you
had old Ben?
Dunno, the old man
said
must be maybe
thirty or more
the family looked to
each other before
one spoke
Grandfather
Grandfather
you know
Ben has
been gone over
twenty years now
it’s time
to go
Ben’s not looking the best
and that
Taxidermist
did such a
bad job.

A little heart

Debbie’s quotation inspired image

    “Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

For what it’s worth, it’s worth all the while……I hope you have the time of your life

Sometimes a heart is dark

Sometimes a heart is upside down

Give love, hold love, be love…..hugs to anyone out there that needs one

To be mellow it’s gotta be……

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Monday: Mellow

What else can I play but this while you have a quick look if you have time.

Which photo took your fancy? Was I mellow enough for the prompt or a bit too yellow. Oh, almost forgot this one. Can you pick why I wanted this photo is included?

All puffed up for Macro Monday

Becky’s Square Photo Challenge: #SquareUp

Time to get up close with a Macro Monday combined with a #SquareUp. These little fungi are called Puffballs. The send a small cloud of spores if they get impacted. They are up all night and if in a cool shaded spot will still be around during the day. It certainly can be a puzzle where they come from as they just appear anywhere in the garden or the bush
