Little ones at the Lake

Well, these little ones have not quite made an appearance as of Wednesday but this patient mother swan has been sitting on her nest for almost a month now so I hoe next week to catch sight of some cygnets!

These little ducklings were being supervised by a young swan who was really just looking for handouts!

Grayling goslings and family day out!

Handsome bird!

Along the River Lagan towpath one evening we were able to see the new apartments under construction and their reflection!

Rose Gardens...a late visit

These are photos from my visit to the Rose Festival at Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon park, South Belfast last year.  I was only able to go after the best of the blooms had passed.

The roses are spread out over quite a large area of parkland.

The skies were pretty unusual that day too.

An area of trellis fencing and some smaller roses just fading.

These late bloomers were still lovely and sweetly scented.

Thankful for all my senses and the beauty of creation!

Temperance Gymnasium Sign

Set up in the 1880's in Lisburn for young men, the Temperance Institute Gymnasium gave them somewhere to train and keep out of the public houses.

Presently the hall is used as part of the Bridge Community facility for public events.

Kids these days!

This is the latest mural from the 'R Space' Gallery workshop entitled 'Kids these Days!'

I think my daughter is right to say this is a judge about to drop the gavel of judgement on today's youth and condemn them all.  Do you think that's the message from this mural?

Right beside it is this CHAOS mural.

Look me in the eye...

Whilst crouched down among the grass and dandelions with the macro lens on, I had the good fortune of catching the eye of this little critter.  Great photo op - I don't mind flies in the field, just not in my house!

Thanks for coming by!

Floral Friday

I couldn't resist sharing a few more dandelion shots...

My favourite bright blue forget-me-not...

I have just learned the name of this spring flower is the cuckoo flower and it is a delicate little beauty.

Hope you enjoyed!

Thanks so much for all the encouraging comments on yesterdays post.

Happy weekend!
