A look back at wonderful poppies

As today is the 11th of November I thought I’d look back at some photos I took when I visited the amazing display at the Tower of London two years ago.  I was lucky enough to be able to buy one of the poppies from that display and it is now making a small display of its own in my garden.

A chocolate offer hard to resist

It was difficult to pass this display of chocolates from around the world without taking up the offer of a free sample (or two).  I can report that they were all very tasty, but my preference was for the chocolate from Brazil.  I might have had to try several pieces of each type before coming to that decision…

Hovering around on a sunny day

Marmalade hoverfly on Gazania flower

It was lucky that this hoverfly was taking its time on the flowers yesterday, and wasn’t bothered about me being very close to it, which gave me the chance to focus my camera and get a decent shot.

That’s my six words for this Saturday.  For more sets of six words visit Debbie at Travel With Intent.

Hope you have a good weekend.

Time for a post about Barcelona

At last, I hear  you saying!

I thought I would get started with a visit to the wonderful market of La Boqueria, one of Europe’s largest food markets, just off Las Ramblas in Barcelona.

It is an amazing place to visit – the hustle and bustle, the crowds, the scents, the sights and the produce make it easy to spend quite a while there, and that’s without buying anything.  I visited in the early afternoon, so missed the main spectacle of the fish market as many of the stalls were empty or emptying.  One or two other stalls had closed but there was still plenty for me to see.  In addition to the produce for sale, there are many tapas bars, where you pull up a stool and choose from a mouthwatering selection of small dishes, cooked as you wait.

Without further ado, let the mouth-watering begin…

Let’s finish off with some sweet treets…

No time for Friday letters yesterday

On  Thursday we attended the wedding of our Goddaughter.  It was a wonderful occasion, starting in beautiful church and continuing at a gorgeous reception venue with delightful gardens – a great time was had by all.  We stayed over at the venue and yesterday the celebrations continued as we all made the most of the recent beautiful weather.

The morning after.
