ShareMondays2018 – The Look Of Love

My little brother got married on Saturday! I have a new sister and she’s lovely. There’s really nothing else that comes close to this as a photo-of-the-week for me. That includes photos of birds and butterflies, I’ll have you know! All of them truly beautiful but THIS is the beautiful moment that I HAVE to share with you all this Monday, the looks of love and happiness as they shared their first dance. What more can I say really! Just that I’m so thrilled for you, Robin and Mo, I’m still buzzing from your wonderful WedFest and very happy that our family has grown once again.

ShareMondays 2018: Sheltered

I couldn’t resist a few snow-themed photos from yesterday for my posts this week! I just loved this robin, perched under the boughs of one the conifers on the lawn at RHS Wisley Gardens, sheltering from the chill wind. I thought he’d be a nice piece for today’s ShareMondays post.

I also want to say sorry to many of my followers who’ve been leaving me lots of lovely comments and not receiving replies! I usually do most of my social media chat and notifications on my phone but it’s playing up at the moment. I need to upgrade it but have been patiently waiting for the latest Sony Xperia to be released! Until then (fingers crossed in the next week or so) I am still putting up with a phone that crashes when the battery drops to around seventy percent. Normal service, and responses, should resume shortly. I hope you’ll continue to be patient with me!

I couldn’t resist sharing this singing robin with you all today for Wex Mondays. I don’t think he could have opened that beak any wider! Talk about being full of the joys of Spring, they were literally bursting out of this lovely little bird. The sight and sound put a huge smile on my face so I hope it makes you smile too!

I’ve been a bit quiet on here lately. One of the many reasons for my absence has been the creation of this gallery to send to all my family, friends, blogging buddies and followers, Seasons Greetings and Best Wishes for 2017! I just love the lighting display at RHS Wisley Gardens for Christmas!

This year they have outdone themselves with the beautiful floral light-sculptures, floodlit trees and the eerily-outlandish Glasshouse After Dark. Cacti and succulents are often quite alien in appearance but lit with neon-green, blue and red lights they really did become completely otherworldly and I LOVED it 🙂

So, Happy Holidays wherever you are in the world, and however you celebrate this special time of year! I’ll speak to you all in the New Year 🙂
