One swallow does not a summer make, but we do not even have one swallow, at least not in my area and now they have begun their journey to warmer pastures. However, now and again we see a swallow tail butterfly, although they have also become rare.RDP Saturday: Swallow
That is what happens when the weather gods decide to play with their kaleidoscope, usually in the evening before closing down for the night.RDP Saturday: Kaleidoscope
When you are lucky enough to live in Switzerland in a village where you can see the alps in the Bernese Overland if it is a clear day, then of course you select a view. I took the photo from the hill where our local castle is in our village showing the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. Of course I zoomed in to get all the details. Also without a camera zoom you have a good view – they are too big to ignore.RDP Saturday: Vista
This photo of the Autumn leaves along the bank of the River Aare was so impressive. I took the shot in the year 2015 but never forgot it. The Autumn leaves had formed a red carpet along the side of the river.RDP Saturday: Scattered
At the Rheinfall in Switerland it does not get more frothy than this.
However in our local cemetery we also have a few water falls from the stream on a smaller scale of course.RDP Saturday: Frothy as Air
All I can say to that is Llanfairpwllgwyngyll which is the name of a village in Wales, actually on the Isle of Angelsey and of course Yaki da which is a Welsh greeting for Good Day.
My photo shows the flowers of the leek vegetable, whish is also an emblem of the Welsh nation, besdes their red dragon. I remember many years ago going to a football match in London where my team were playing against Swansea town, one of the Welsh teams. There were some Welsh supporters in the stadium and before the match begun they decided to do something for their team and quickly ran onto the field and planted a leek on the middle spot. Of course it was removed before the game began, but it was a nice patriotic gesture.RDP Saturday: Hiraeth
This carpet must have inspired Mr. Swiss as he uses it for parking his drums on it. He was a jazz drummer for many years as a hobby, but the golden oldie years have now taken their toll on his back. He still manages to sit in now and again on a session, but perhaps when you reach the age of 82 you prefer to listen and go with the rhythm more than actually going into action. He still has two sets of drums and they are parked in our basement hobby room, so now and again if he is tempted he will still beat to the rhythm. Why the carpet? If you hammer away on the the floor the drums might begin to slip away.RDP Saturday: Inspired Carpet
Now that smells good, Very enticing to my tast buds. I will definitely be floating when I fly after a sample. The humans really have good ideas when they prepare something fineto eat or drink. I can almost feel the pull of a different dimension, I think I will take a sip, just slowly lower myself over the edge – after all what could possibly go wrong. One leg after the other as our queen said. although she lays around all the time laying eggs. It is quite a steep slope, but we wasps achieve it all, although ….. Help, I am tumbling and now drowning, but what a lovely death, sweet and sticky although I cannot breath, and all my eyes are stickiing together, but this brown substance is really a wonderful brew, is this what getting high means?
My mum told my family that you should never give up and I have been saved. Something emptied the wonderful liquid onto the garden outside with a scream “There is a wasp in my cola”. Who cares I am saved, but it was a wonderful feeling when I sipped the liquid. It was worth the risk. And now to fly further, I can hear humans and I am sure they are eating something that I could share with them – although more screams and demonstrations, but that is human I suppose. They can never stay calm and always have to get excited.RDP Saturday: Tumble
I was on a visit to london a few years ago, actually it was my last visit. I was in a store and saw this. I would like to have had a better photo but did not want to get into difficulties if someone saw me. I also used to wear such instruments when I was younger for a modern hairstyle, but I must admit I did not wear them for everyone to see, but only at home.RDP Saturday: Foolish Things
