Claude from http://www.du-four-au-jardin-et-mes-dix-doigts.blogspot.com (which I think means"some things from my garden and some made with my ten fingers") had some photos of an old chateau that she visited. Among them was a picture of an old prison door. I liked it so much I asked her if I could copy it for my set of ATC Doorways. So here it is: The Prison Door. Thank you Claude for letting me copy this! Claude is French but she frequently has English translations with her posts. I am trying to brush up my school-girl French with her blog.
This old 'gentleman' was keeping guard outside the apartment of a retiree in a retirement home near us. I thought he looked wonderful and quite real.
The daffodils are back! Of course I had to buy some. Sadly these didn't do too well this time. Perhaps it's a wee bit too early for them. There will be more, I'm sure. Jackie at The Ginger Darlings tells of a daffodil farm near her home on the St. David's Peninsula in Wales. Now that would be something to see!!
I have had this photo of the clouds for several weeks since our last rainstorm. I don't belong to Skywatch Friday, but these were so magnificent and so unusual to be as close as this to Carlsbad. So I had to take a photo. Usually, large cumulus clouds are way back over the mountains.
