It is getting warmer

Standard

After a cold May with rain, hail, storms and the odd ray of sunshine

the weather realises that is is nearly June and needs to be warmer.

For the last 2 days it has been warmer and

flowers, bushes all really start to bloom.

I love it.

Lilac is in full bloom and smelling amazing.

These are my amazing finds during a walk in a park.

Can you smell that amazing Lilac?

The earth laughs in flowers

to quote Ralph Waldo Emerson

…and the answer is…..

Standard

This was the inside of the fruit I used im my smoothies

I had asked you what you think it is?

This was the shot after I already taken the inside into my smoothie.

It usually has black seeds with the juice and pulp inside.

Once you take all seeds and juice out it looked like my picture above zoomed in of course.

And the answer is…

Yes, it was a Passion fruit or Maracuja.

Passion Fruit or Maracuja

My smoothie was delicious. I always try to use many different fruits.

I have taken from one fruit the seeds out and try to grow them, but so far no luck.

Need to have patience.

Thank you all for guessing.

First News flash in the new year

Standard

As it happened….

I switched on my computer on 1st day of the new year and nothing happened.

After a little investigation, you know if it is actually plugged in 🙂 and a call to my son,

it appears my computer is not working, kaput, dead, toast, non functional, gone to pieces, broken……

I think you get the picture.

 

During this time a computer is rather vital to keep in touch.

With the help of my son, I ordered a new one.

I am using right now my laptop, which I find a lot harder to use than my beloved desktop, specially with the cat on my lap. 🙂

A laptop is less versatile than the desktop.

I might be a little stressed but I am grateful

that I do have a laptop,

that I have help with technology (my son)

that we could still do our family quiz via zoom on the laptop.

that he could recover my files on the drive,

that I can learn from this, and not save stuff on my desktop…..

and that it can be solved, with just minor inconvenience really.

 

So really nothing to be stressed about.

 

So I am all relaxed again

looking forward to my new computer

and keep smiling.

 

Hope your new year started well and you are relaxed and happy!

Stay strong

Standard

Over the years I have enjoyed my loyal Primula in a pot in my garden.

Every year it is the first plant to bloom.

This picture is from 30th March 2016

That plant is going through all type of weather, recently snow, winds, heavy rain …

it is quite old and yet

it keeps blooming, giving me joy.

It has now ( 30th March 2018) even more flowers.

It stays strong through it all.

We need to be strong too, when we go through rough patches,

and keep on blooming.

We are stronger than we think and like the flower,

we can get through it !

Have a strong and blooming day!
