Sunday Selections was originally brought to us by Kim, of Frogpondsrock, as an ongoing meme where participants could post previously unused photos languishing in their files.
Huge thanks to Cie who gave me this wonderful Sunday Selections image.
The meme was then continued by River at Drifting through life. Sadly she has now stepped aside (though she will join us some weeks), and I have accepted the mantle.
The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent. Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to me. Clicking on any of the photos will make them embiggen.
I usually run with a theme. This week, like most of the world, I am still at home. I can get into the garden, and I can go for walks in the neighbourhood. And I do.
I first heard of the 'Teddy bear Hunt' on line. People are encouraged to put bears in their windows to brighten the days of children who are limited by the lockdown protocols. My inner child is alive and well so I had to hunt in my own street.
There is limited pickings in my street - and most of the 'bears' seem to be dogs. So I wondered what I could put up.
My bears have left the building leaving me only 'pink puppy' who is small and can no longer stand up.
Why 'pink' puppy I hear you ask? I chose pink puppy myself, before I was two. My parents lined up a selection of stuffed toys and let me take my pick. I chose pink puppy - who wasn't either of my parents first choice. They shuffled the toys and let me choose again. And repeated the process. When I still chose pink puppy he came home with us. And went everywhere with me for a number of years. Everywhere included a hospital trip. When I was vilely sick on him (coming round from an anaesthetic) the nurses sterilised him and his colour faded. He was still much loved and has lived in every house I have.
Teddy bear pickings are fairly limited in my street so far, so I will continue the hunt.
And of course I have been revelling in the sky. In all her moods.
The garden has claimed a lot of my time too (and will get even more this week since as I was preparing this post 500 mixed daffodil and jonquil bulbs were delivered).
As you can see from the last photograph, autumn is here. In the next little while I will wander around and take photos of the aboreal fireworks on display.
Stay safe, stay well.
