  16. They remind me of a raindrop. What wonderful pod-like hammocks. These are a great place to rest after, or getting ready to, climb those stairs.

  40. I was very confused with the collage because I thought the lion was in switzerland and then thought I must have been wrong. Ha! I love the swings - where is the park? We call the Ibis a Bin Chicken because in the city they hang out near bins to eat the rubbish....

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love those hammocks. I want one for the garden. That sunset is wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Those swing hammocks are cool. You have the most unusual birds in your area. I enjoy seeing them all. The pie tees look scrumptious. And the pink flowers are so pretty. They look like tiny stars. What a gorgeous sky.

    Have a wonderful week.

  50. Another lovely collection of photos, Veronica. I visited the Lion of Lucerne a number of years ago. Such a sad tale. The hammock chairs would be fun to relax in after a walk. I love the look of the Pie Tees and plan to watch the video later. Have a great day!

    ReplyDelete

  57. Those vegetable tarts (Pie Tee) are so interesting ; I'm going to look at that video. Anything that makes vegetables more interesting is worth knowing about! Beautiful flowers -- and we have a stork here in Florida that I am pretty sure is exactly the same as yours.

  58. It was nice to "see" you in that swing hammock, Veronica Lee, and I would also have taken a selfie 😀. THanks for the link to the story of the sleeping lion. And, could you please send some of Peranakan Dinner, as all the food looked do good.

  63. Interesting photos. I saw a flock of those white birds in Florida last year in a nearby intracoastal pond- I looked them up and thought they were storks.. However, they looked exactly like your photo.. hmmm do Australian Ibis' visit Florida?? Just curious now.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Delicious food, nice post, have a nice day!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Your sky pictures are always stunning, dear Veronica! The black and white ibis is also very pretty. Pie tea looks delicious and your plant photos are beautiful. You on the swing - :-) - I can never resist when I see one either. (Do you still have to wear masks outside? Or do you do it for yourself out of caution?)
    All the best in June,
