I’m quite sure that Snow Melts Somewhere had a different kind of design in mind for her and Amanda’s Friendly Friday photo challenge but I’m letting nature win this. Only proper.
All today’s photos were taken in the last two weeks, the majority during my first sockless walk yesterday. (Today was even a nicer day and I had another. I got bitten by ants. Socks are not all bad.)
To start with, there are three photos from the lovely 50th birthday celebration of a friend back in Slovenia with designs that caught my mouth, I mean eye.
We continue with three images from Rome where a cat house is waiting for a proper, brand new, incoming white cat. I can’t wait to see how bestia reacts when we next come on a visit! Generally he is wary of cats because a couple attacked him once unprovoked. But she is so young and female, I’m sure they will be friends.
And then I let nature take over during my yesterday’s lengthy walk to the station, slowly but surely, ending with a poppy explosion. They begged me for my camera to take a selfie and I let them. There it is in the featured photo.
For the very end, today I put the greeting card that I got for my birthday in a tree as promised. It says:
Thank you again, Miralem.
Conclusion: I live in a remarkable setting designed by the grandmaster.
