Photo Round-Up: Zig-Zag

dscf0047

Not exactly zig-zag but…. we had a glorious day on Brownsea Island on Thursday and Little Miss M was enjoying following where we were on the map we were given at the entrance. As soon as she spotted an area of sand, she was keen to draw her own island, the bit sticking out at the bottom is where the ferry lands – not bad for a 4 year old.

Jane at Rainbow Junkie ………………………. colourful crochet

Cathy at Nanacathy …………………………..  mighty moles

Me at Wild Daffodil …………………………..  seahorse sewing

Denis at Haiku Hound ………………………. bees buzzing

In this post I am also joining in with Cee’s Flower of the Day, Macro Monday, DSC_1006

Today’s Flowers

and

Cathy’s  wonderful ‘In a Vase on Monday ‘ where she invites us to find things in our gardens to pop in a vase each week. The great thing about this meme is that Cathy also adds a few props and each ‘Vase’ tells a story.

The mirror in the photo above is an appropriate prop for a ‘Vase’ referencing a myth about unrequited love. It was given to me many years ago by a boyfriend. Before I opened the present he told me that when I opened the wrapping I would see the most beautiful thing in the world – and of course, as it was a mirror, I saw myself!

Sadly the relationship ended before I wanted it too, but it is always nice to remember the good things and I still love that little mirror.

Mother’s Day happens in Spring here, and I get some lovely cards from my children, these were both made by my daughter, the collage was from a couple of years ago (I keep them all – of course!) and the wonderful daffodil doodle was this year’s card. Lucky me!
