Fun Fact
According to Feng Shui, an elephant figurine with its trunk up symbolizes fortune and success, whereas a downward facing trunk is compared with a vacuum cleaner that sucks in negative chi!

Is it just me or have you noticed that since Blogger did something funny to the comment box, most of the comments now end up as spam?

  4. That Korean feast for Mother's Day looks about as good as it gets. Make me wish I was a mother!

  5. All your food always looks so delicious! I must have known that elephant fact as I have a few elephant sculptures that have their trunks raised in the air! :) Your Eiffel Tower photos are wonderful--I hope to see it in person one day!

  6. I will check spam, for sure. Some of my comments on other blogs have met the same fate.
    Blessings!

  7. Those flowers with the water droplets on them are exquisite! And I have never heard of steamed eggs, but they look delicious! I have noticed comments going into spam. I'm glad that I get the email notices of comments so that when I go and look for them on my blog to respond to and they are not posted, I know they are stuck in spam. Not happy with Blogger doing that! I hope you had a great Mother's Day Veronica!

  8. I knew that elephants were supposed to have their trunks up. I thought elephants with trunks down were bad luck. Thank you for correcting my misinformation.

    When you comment, make sure to switch the anonymous to name/url. The other thing you can do is switch your comments to where you get that popup box. People can't reply to individual comments, but that commenting system is still on the old system, so it works as before.

  11. Dearest Veronica,
    What a feast for the eye; photos that are poetry!
    Yes, I also noticed comments in my spam, without me sending them there...
    It is a constant struggle that Blogger thing.
    Hugs,

  12. The flowers after the rain looks very pretty! Here we have the worst drought for a hundred years or so, so I wish I got some rain here.

    Happy Monday, Veronica!

  16. That's the first time I've seen the Eiffel Tower up close, what an amazing structure! Beautiful flowers, bird and food. I've had the Kimchi soup before and it's wonderful! Thanks for another trip around the world from my chair :)

  17. What a fun collection, as always! Loved the travel, the food, the bird life, all of it. Very curious about the technique for steamed eggs, and am going to look that up (they look like perfectly made delicious scrambled ones). I am certainly going to make sure any elephant statues I ever get have trunks up!!!

  18. These colors just started my morning off so happily! And anytime I see the Eiffel Tower, I know a good day is in store. Thanks for wonderful pix. And yes, I now check my comment spam every day -- and almost always find the comments of good blog friends there!

  19. Your pictures of the wind spinners reminds me I need to buy a new one for our backyard. It always brings a smile to our faces seeing them turning in the wind.

  33. Lovely colourful photos.I am getting the same problems with comments going into spam. I get the notifications but they don't appear on my blog. They weren't waiting to be moderated either so I went hunting for them and found about 15 stuck in spam. I have found in quite a few blogs I comment on that the comment disappears instead of publishing. Very annoying!!

  34. Thank you for showing me such a wonderful place

    ReplyDelete
  35. The hibiscus is so pretty after the rain. Love the wind spinners, too. They would add a lot of life to a garden and the little ones would enjoy them, too. Delicious looking food! Have a good week, Veronica.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Your photos are gorgeous today! Especially the Eifel Tower ones! I love the wind spinners and the meaning of the elephant with the upturned trunk.

    Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  44. Dear Veronica,
    I think the comment function is currently "work in progress", so there are a few stupid things happening. One of my long-time blog friends also ended up in the spam folder, while real spam was not recognized ;-) I hope they can fix this soon. Very nice your photos again - I love flowers after the rain and parrots and hope to visit the Eiffel Tower one day, too. Your food photos are another attack on my resilience ;-DD
    Hugs from Austria,

  45. That Khimchi soup looks inviting.

  46. Those steamed eggs and bbq looked really good, Veronica Lee, as does all the food you show in these posts. I know not to look before having eaten!

    As for blogger comments, I have read that many people are having issues in not being able to post comments. I have not noticed any problems in either doing so or receiving comments on my posts.

  47. Hello Veronica, What a lovely mosaic and beautiful images. I love the cute parrot. Love the view of the Eiffel Tower. The food all looks delicious. Take care, have a great day and a happy weekend!

  48. Hello,
    I am not sure what is happening with the comments, some times I try to comment and they disappear? This is my second try. I enjoyed your mosaic and wonderful photos. The Parrot is beautiful and I love the view of the Eiffel Tower. Beautiful flowers! The Mother's Day feast looks delicious. Take care, have a great day and a happy weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Oh I do love that parrot guy! Too fun!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I love your posts with the variety of images. I'm working on a very difficult (to me) jigsaw puzzle on my ipad that features the Eiffel tower. I've been working two weeks on it!

  53. Love the Eiffel tower pics! We didn't get a chance to spend time sightseeing when we were in Paris in 2019, we really went just to go to Disney for the kids, haha! I'd love to go back one day though!

    Hope you are having a good weekend. It's another rainy day here!

  54. I love how flowers look after the rain! They're quite so lovely.
    And once again, the food made me crave.. I love the Kimchi soup, it is something I miss!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Oh my gosh, I think I'm going to have to come back another time to look more carefully. I am trying to catch up a bit before I make some dinner and your scrumptious food is making me so hungry I believe I will have to go and start cooking (and tasting as I go)!! Thanks for the lovely pics.
