Lens Artist #112 pick a word

For the Lens artist challenge this week Ann-Christine at Leya is asking us to pick a word (or more than one) from the following and illustrate it:

  • Comfortable
  • Growing
  • Tangled
  • Crowded
  • Exuberant



This one is a photograph of my little lemon seedlings. I decided that I would plant the seeds from Mr H’s lemon a few weeks ago that he had removed from the lemon to have some lemon flavoured water.


My black embroidery floss is just a little bit tangled, hopefully, it won’t take long to untangle.


For crowded I have gone back to a photograph from August 2013, this was taken at Sefton Park in Liverpool during the Liverpool music festival for that year. This was a free concert in the park by the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, with lots of well known classical music from films,etc. It was a fabulous event with people sitting on picnic blankets or foldable chairs and having picnics while listening to the music and ended with a fabulous fire work display.


This photograph is Charlie dog again having a fabulous time chasing his mini tennis ball.

Lazy morning

So far this Saturday morning both Mr H and I have both been up early this morning. While Mr H has a little rest I am also having a lazy Saturday morning while I finish off cross-stitching my little zebra foal ready go off to love quilts UK.

It’s nearly there now with just one leg to go and the 2 front hooves. While I am busy sewing little Charlie dog has decided he would keep me company.
