I have consulted the tea leaves, and it seem there is a trip to Vienna in my future. A huge thank you to @austrianairlines for selecting my "banana aeroplane" picture as winner of the "Austrian moments" competition, amongst so many wonderful entries, and for their great generosity in offering a Trip to Vienna as the prize. Also huge thanks to @joshjohnson @kevinkuster and the team at @jjcommunity for hosting the challenge and for all they do. No need for congratulations, just wanted to say thank you πŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ή #creative_display_ #arte_minimal #creativegrammer #createcaptura #hubs_united #artybus #arts_help #artselect #moodcommunity #ilikeitlikethis #artistic_unity_ #magic_shots #girlscreating #pocket_creative #creativelysquared #styleonmytable #creativityfound #instamoments #rsa_ladies #thecreativehive #jj_creative #hashtagfloosie #headyart #indetail #rsa #stilllife_perfection

Why do you think they call them catkins....well, in fact it is an old Dutch work meaning "kitten" because they look like kitten tails 😽😽😽😽😽 #catsofinstagram #catlove #catlover #creative_display_ #arte_minimal #creativegrammer #createcaptura #hubs_united #artybus #arts_help #artselect #moodcommunity #ilikeitlikethis #artistic_unity_ #magic_shots #girlscreating #pocket_creative #creatively_squared #styleonmytable #creativityfound #instamoments #rsa_ladies #thecreativehive #jj_creative #hashtagfloosie #headyart #indetail #rsa #stilllife_perfection #jj_texttypographical
We rode over the downs yesterday, even though it was still cool the sun was shining and i could detect that smell in the air that tells you that you have broken the back of winter. The roads were still a little wet and salty, but drying enough that you could start to enjoy a hint of that swoop and glide that makes riding on winding roads such fun. We were in a rhythm by the time we came into the village of Alfriston, a village so pretty it is almost embarrassing, the road winds past a triangular village β€œsquare” then narrows to single file as it passes between the ancient flint cottages, the road drops and curves as it passes out of the village, we have to pull in our clutches and roll the bikes past the horse riders, to minimise the engine noise, but even so the back horse shies and starts to step sideways, once we are well past we open the engines again and then we are climbing, the road climbs higher and higher, bends following the contours of the chalk hill, we cant the bikes over until suddenly we crest the hill, and there it is in front of me, i could see for miles, the rolling downs over toward Beachy Head, the sea in the distance, the low afternoon sun turning it to gold, the open hill top around me, punctuated by those strange slanted trees you get on windswept moors, and best of all, playing on the hill side, the first lambs of the year, I can hardly describe how it lifted me, I could feel the sap rising, spring is finally on its way.πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™ #creative_display_ #arte_minimal #creativegrammer #createcaptura #hubs_united #artybus #arts_help #artselect #moodcommunity #ilikeitlikethis #artistic_unity_ #magic_shots #girlscreating #pocket_creative #creatively_squared #styleonmytable #creativityfound #instamoments #rsa_ladies #thecreativehive #jj_creative #hashtagfloosie #headyart #indetail #rsa #stilllife_perfection #jj_pick6_Joy #jj_forum_1819

πŸ₯š How foolish of the hex-bolt bird, To lay her eggs upon the ground, And knowing that the shells are tough, She cares not if the nest is found. πŸ₯šπŸ”§πŸ”©πŸ”§πŸ₯š But she forgot the lizard wrench, Who hides out in the dunes at night, And even shells of steel or chrome, Cannot withstand his vice like bite. πŸ₯šπŸ”§πŸ”©πŸ”§πŸ₯š "Don't take my eggs" the bolt bird cries, "The nail birds eggs are much more sweet", "I know it's harsh" the wrench replies, "But even lizards have to eat". πŸ₯šπŸ”§πŸ”©πŸ”§πŸ₯š πŸ₯š πŸ₯š πŸ₯š #creative_display_ #arte_minimal #creativegrammer #createcaptura #hubs_united #artybus #arts_help #artselect #moodcommunity #ilikeitlikethis #artistic_unity_ #magic_shots #girlscreating #pocket_creative #creatively_squared #styleonmytable #creativityfound #instamoments #rsa_ladies #thecreativehive #jj_creative #hashtagfloosie #headyart #indetail #rsa #jj_forum_1813 #gotd_1416 #pinkandblue_hp

Anyone who has visited the Natural History Museum in London will recollect being greeted in the grand entrance hall by the plaster cast of a diplodocus skeleton, an awesome sight on the grounds of sheer size alone, but this is not the only gigantic exhibit, one of my clearest memories of my first visit to the museum as a child is of the whale hall, a whale skeleton hung dramatically from the ceiling, but my memory lingers on the life sized blue whale model, a gigantic feat of engineering, an edifice of painted plaster clothing a wooden frame. while it was being built it sported a trap door in its belly, presumable to help with construction, it was said that museum workers were known to slip, Jonah like, into the belly of the whale for a sneaky smoke. When construction was finally finished on the six ton model the trap door was sealed up and plastered over, rumour said that the artist had left a time capsule inside the belly of the leviathan, when questioned, he admitted to leaving a phone book and some coins inside, but remained tight lipped about anything else. In my memory the enormous model is the only thing in the hall, although pictures prove this is not the case, I remember a tiny grey eye with a giant fluted throat below it like the hull of a ship, the huge flukes soaring high into the vast hall, from a railed gallery above, glinting discs of copper and silver coins could be seen where they had been thrown onto the twin tables of the flukes. I found the idea of such an animal swimming wild in the ocean as fantastic as the idea of the diplodocus wading through the swamps. How envious i was years later when my son told me how he had seen these graceful giants swimming as he sailed across the oceans #ru_blue_17 #jj_forum_1811 πŸ‹πŸ‹ #creative_display_ #arte_minimal #creativegrammer #createcaptura #hubs_united #artybus #arts_help #artselect #moodcommunity #ilikeitlikethis #magic_shots #girlscreating #pocket_creative #creatively_squared #styleonmytable #creativityfound #instamoments #rsa_ladies #thecreativehive #jj_creative #hashtagfloosie #gotd_1409 #scattered_hp #gmfm_0661

Mr W came home from school with his backpack full of carrots, I usually buy the "ugly" carrots that are sold for less because they are crooked or too big or "shonky" shaped, but these are small and pointed, these are "good looking" carrots. "The kitchen made a mistake ordering" he told me, "the caretaker accosted me, on my way home, he said that I must take at least a couple of kilos, that he had already taken several kilos home and that he was getting sick of the coleslaw and soup that his wife wouldn't stop making". "were you the only one he gave them to?" I asked, "I don't think so" He said "in the staff room at lunch time, at least one other teacher had carrot soup in their flask".

When we lived in our last home and had a little more garden, we always kept chickens, they have a reputation for being stupid, and i suppose by some standards that may be true, but what anyone who has kept hens will tell you, is what gentle and relaxing pets they make, they have an almost continuous soft crooning noise they make, and the most mesmerising robot way of moving. Their ginger feathered bodies are much softer than you might imagine, and should you decide to stroke one it will immediately adopt a crouching raised shouldered stance, like a lectern, making a soft feathered valley for you to run your hand down. There is also something incredibly satisfying about being able to convert your unwanted bread crusts and potato peelings into fresh golden hearted eggs. When we went to buy some more layers the year before we left the house with the big garden, I was seized by a strange impulsive madness, which saw me leaving the farm with two boxes instead of one, one containing three gently humming brown hens, and one containing one extravagantly plumed but miniature rooster. At first i didn't name him just calling β€œladies, cocky” when i took out the scraps for them, but soon his haughty behaviour and diminutive size dictated that there was only one name for him. Napoleon did not like being picked up or stroked, but it was almost worth it to watch his fluffed up outrage when you put him down again, Napoleon was noisy, he didn't quite manage the morning fanfare of β€œCock-a-doodle-doo” but a strangulated β€œdoodle-squawk-doodle squawk” intermittently from dawn till dusk. Napoleon lorded to over the larger hens, chasing away any that tried to peck where he was scratching. Napoleon didn't back down no matter what the odds, and though i admired him for this, ultimately it became his undoing, when he decided to taunt the dog.....cont #jj_forum_1801#chinesenewyear
