iSpy #38

 iSpy #38 Lysha's photographic challenge.

The week the prompts were : Real Life, Connect, Square, Upright, your choice.

Real Life:  Today was a great spring day - warm and sunny and perfect for gardening and doing those jobs that get put off again and again.  Ian is finally doing the step & trim strips on the garden around the deck (the deck was finished two years ago!).  YAY!

Connect:  This is certainly a puzzle that is often not connected.  We can't do it, and visitors always try it.  One of our friends is an engineer and he didn't know what it was supposed to look like as someone had pulled it to bits, but he put it back together in about a minute!   So, now it is connected.

Square:  I like the pattern this stack of bricks makes, and the subtle shadings.

Upright:  Doing the gardening today in my wild garden, I noticed among the plantings that most were sort of horizontal, except for the bluebells which are upright. . . not to mention absolutely lovely.

Own choice:  I have been trying lots of new recipes lately and this is one effort: cinnamon buns with cream cheese icing.  Oh YUM!

That's it for this week.  Check out the selection at Lysha's Photographic challenge here:   spy-38

I get really excited when I see an ispy on your blog Carol haha, I just love it. Firstly your Ian is doing a good job there, love the deck btw. The puzzle, well it would always be a puzzle to me, looks really difficult, love the bricks, nice colour combo too and the bluebells are always a good sign of warmer days to come, last but not least those cinnamon rolls look so delish, love the cream cheese icing, sounds yummy.
Enjoy your day/
