Friday My Town Shoot Out: Yellow!

Friday My Town Shoot comes from Liverpool! No yellow Sub though, that would have been good wouldn't it!

This week the task is to photograph the colour yellow!
Here goes!
I loved this yellow sky, letting people on the plane to the beautiful city of Liverpool through a golden light reflecting off the Mersy River!
This golden statue in the Metropolitan Cathedral always catches my eye and I loved the way the yellow light shone on it!
Every time I see a daffodil for the first Spring I sing Kermit the Frog's "Happy Feet" in my head! Accent and everything!
I love the yellow pollen that invites the Spring Bees to rest in the pristine white flowers!
and today I glimpse at this yellow sunset that reminded me to be so thankful for every day life!
Have a lovely mellow yellow weekend!

Friday My Town Shoot Out: Green!!

Hello there and it is a green theme for St Patricks day and wouldn't ya now, I forgot about it! Yes, me, the Irish woman! It was not until I got 4am phone calls from all my loved ones back home, drooling down the line a Happy St patricks day, of how much they "miff me" (Miss me. I think.)

I must be getting old! So I took a walk today out and about for something green to catch my eye! This green tree stands tall in the sunlight
I love the way the moss trails leads down the path, like a luscious green carpet for the wee creatures!
I always walk past this aqua green fence wondering about secret gardens and what hides behind it. I love the building at the back with the green moss hanging down from it!
I spotted these beautiful green flowers growing. Does any one know its name?
then their is the lovely tennis courts with the light green floor, it looks so big!

I saw this piece of ivy growing through the brown fence, just pushing its way through!

I love the different shades of green in this picture with the dark leaves of the tree on the right to my favourite tree, the wonderful Willow!

I could not leave without a picture of my green bamboo plant! It grows so quickly and has brought much luck to us!
Have a lovely weekend!

My Town Shoot Out: The Letter S!

Hello there, is it Friday again? It must mean a Friday Shoot out! This weeks topic is the letter S and comes to you from the fabulous city, Liverpool!

Suitcases in Hope Street
Spooky ghost story concerning this crypt in a graveyard on Rodney Street of a gambling man who played with the devil in exchange for his soul. The devil said "When you are buried in the ground, I will come for you" so the man made arrangements to be buried in this crypt sitting at a table with a suit of cards in his hand. He would not be buried under the ground so the devil could not claim him.

Who knows? But folklore states that the ghost of the man named James McKenzie still haunts the street in the early hours of the morning.

This is the Metropolitan cathedral, known affectionately as Paddy's wigwag. I love the spires at the top and it reminds me of a queens crown.
Font size I love to gaze at the boats sailing up and down the river Mersey!

See you soon!
