The challenge this week is to show some photos that depict a transition…..so this is what I will do!

The following photos are of ivy buds just before flowering…..

Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition 2

If ‘A juxtaposition is “the act of placing things side by side, especially for the purpose of comparison or contrast”’, then nature juxtapositioned these two ivy leaves….

Travel Theme: Gaudy

This week’s travel theme is Gaudy and this fine idea belongs to Ailsa at

http://wheresmybackpack.com/2013/02/08/travel-theme-gaudy/

Whilst walking in some local woods I saw a very strange sight……

Surely these holly leaves are the wrong colour and perhaps a little gaudy?

Or have they been spray painted by some antisocial unpleasantry?

Walking on a little further I think I found just who the antisocial unpleasantries were!

If you’re going to commit a crime, at least make sure no one can pin it on you (not really good advice I know), especially if there is evidence of it all over yourself!….

The gang of 4 quietly chewed the cud not realising that the spray paint had spilled out onto their fleeces! Sadly, as could be said to be proved in this case, sheep are thought to maybe be colour blind!

Where have they hidden the cans?

In the UK we have something called ASBOs which are ‘Antisocial Behaviour Orders’ which can prevent those with them from going to certain places or hopefully stop them from misbehaving.

This Badass group of sheep all have ASSBOs! ‘Anti-social Sheep Behaviour Order’.

I fear the next step may be prison!!

That’s All!

Weekly photo challenge: Thankful 3

I was so pleased to come across this lovely ivy on a very damp, dank and rainy day last week.

I guess ‘thankful’ would be a way to describe it!

Though I would not say to someone “I am so thankful for ivy!”, I would definitely say…

“Isn’t ivy beautiful, just look at it!”

Does that count?

I love ivy and have written a blog filled with photos of ivy and its buds, flowers and seed heads.

Here’s the link to the post if you’re interested:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal 6

Ivy

Ivy flower

There seems to have been a profusion of ivy this year…maybe it likes the wet weather….and I confess I didn’t realise how very beautiful ivy buds, flowers and seed heads are.

I have taken lots of photos of ivy which feature in a blog that I wrote on 2nd November.

Here’s the address if you would like to visit:

And Little Lambs Eat Ivy!

The title of this blog is a bit of a song my dad used to sing, but it sounded more like …”And liddle lamsy divey” and it wasn’t til later in the song that it was slowed down and you could hear the real words.

Happy memories!

Anyway, I have for you today………some pics of…..have you guessed it yet?

Ivy!

Well ivy buds, flowers and seed heads to be precise.

So here we go (and you may as well hover for those sassy yet amusing remarks!)…

Ivicus Budicus!

They look a bit like fireworks. (Well green fireworks that go off in the day?)

So the next stage is this…

Nearly all out

A little further on in the cycle….

I like it a lot!

I had to take this one when I saw him landing there right in front of my eyes…

The next stage!

And this one is very regal I thought…

Little did they realise how almost rude looking they would turn next!!

Look at these!

Well what do YOU think they look like?

Lovely!

I just like this next shot so it’s not in sequence…

Gorgeous!

That’s all!
