FRIDAY'S HUNT and WEEKEND REFLECTIONS -Gobbins (Part 5)

It is time for Weekend Reflections and Friday’s Hunt again.  The word prompts are - the letter V, Favourite and Sunshine.  When I went down to my old caravan recently to cut my grass, I spied this one VERY small VUNERABLE VIOLA and took 3 shots of it, then I did a little playing with the images and the results are seen below.  Perhaps YOU have a favourite? Please VOTE! Of course V is also for VIDEO so I will show you that at the end of this post to brighten up your day.





Nearing the end of our Gobbins walk that I have been sharing with you this week, this VERY VERTICAL wind vane came into VIEW with its reflection being VISIBLE in this small pond.

Now this VIDEO shows a VARIETY of wonderful coloured Tulips and on any dull day (and we have had many this week) will bring a splash of SUNSHINE to your day. Photographed in Ward Park which is 2 minutes walk away from my home.  CLICK HERE if it does not appear below.



I am linking this post with WEEKEND REFLECTIONS and FRIDAY'S HUNT.

Many thanks for your visit today and also to all your comments.

  1. The video of all the flowers is wonderful! Here, we would call it a botanical garden! My favorite shot of the sweet little blue flower is the very first one!

  4. Yes it was so special and it was the only one. In over 30 years of having my caravan in this field I have never had one so I had to be careful not to mow over it! Glad to hear you liked my voice on the video.

  5. Thanks for this. I thought it was a Dog Violet. I was close it's the right colour.

    1. I was using the Genus name on the post. Viola is a genus of flowering plants in the violet family Violaceae. It is the largest genus in the family, containing between 525 and 600 species. Dog-violet - Viola riviniana is probably what this one is.

  11. These are very beautiful Margaret, great photos and video of the tulips. Thank you for your comments too. I did get your other one but as I moderate them and I am in a busy spell, I have not had time to go through them all. I have a family member who is very ill and also a friend who is in hospital, so though I have put posts on the blog ahead of time, I am still very slow reading comments. Sorry about that.

  16. Hi Margaret. That is a pretty picture of the vane with its reflection and all. We were in Banger back in 1980 as a refueling stopover on our way to Athens. We also stopped at Frankfort. Since then we've been in Ireland three times. Then one more as a Customs and Immigration entry point into the U.S.
    My vote is for the first picture. I wish it were taken a little closeup.
