The weather hasn’t been favourable for long walks along green lanes. But I found this lurking nearby…
Cranesbill-geranium and possibly narcissus: 14th Feb 2020
Greenery, another title achieved in Maria’s Antonia’s #2020picoftheweek
The greenery is fitting, but I am more enthralled by the sea smoothed stones and the single snail shell lurking in the distance….

You spotted the snail, well done. It’s not native; it’s of the French edible variety is the reason I no longer attempt to grow flowers. We have a heavy infestation, and they munch their way through every petal and leaf. Legacy of living in a medieval trading port!
As to the stones, they probably come from a nearby quarry, and their sea-tumble would date to pre-the last Ice Age.
That’s gorgeous Crispina! Thanks for sharing again! 😀 ❤
Well, I didn’t think I was going to manage it this week. At least, not without recourse to last year’s photos. But then inspiration hit.
It doesn’t look too overcast at least. (Which cannot be said of what I can currently see from my window.
No, yesterday wasn’t so overcast. In fact, it was quite sunny. And very cold. And very windy. But not as windy as later today is forecast to be. But since the storm last weekend, we’ve have gloomy skies and high winds every day. It’s like the storm doesn’t want to go away!
On my walls I recently discovered Marijuana growing wildly.☺️
Wow! Although with the amount that’s smoked in this town, I wouldn’t be too surprised to find it growing here too
Green! A reminder that spring is on its way! 🙂
That’s what I thought. It was worth hunting for some green close to home.
I think the contractors threw seeds and hey now a bush.
Nice thought. 🙂
Lovely… won’t be seeing that anytime soon in my neck of the woods… We are under two feet of snow at this time.
Great catch on the snail by Violet. Had me searching ’til I found it!
As I’ve said before, we don’t often get snow on the coastal strip (makes up for the year-round mists!) And I was going to challenge folks to find the snail, but I doubted any would be able to; it’s very well disguised. BTW, I think it’s just the shell, one of last year’s invaders.
I know you don’t… dunno how I’d feel about year-round mists, though.
And I had to search for it after Violet’s comment! Probably.
Well, not all-day ay every-day mists. But they tend to sweep in even in mid-summer if the day has started gloriously warm. It rolls in like smoke from a fire, only intensely cold. It scatters the sunbathers from the beach. No chance of over-exposure here 🙂
Must be something to see (for one such as me who doesn’t on a regular basis). And Mother Nature is much more caring over there, then!!
God’s own land. The question is, which god. It has been said we Brits are a godless lot who have shoved organised religion where the sun don’t shine… however, the recent influx of Muslims have yet to follow suit. They seem to have dug in their heels and become quite devout.
We Quebecers are also an ungodly lot… religion was so shoved down our throats that many have turned their back. Muslims… that is another story – especially in some regions. Not good that they have emigrated to various countries and brought with them the ugly part of their religion.
I remember someone saying… and it was probably Steven Pinker, cos I hang on his every word, and his background suits the tale, that in emigrating, the immigrant clings tighter to their religion, becomes more orthodox as a means of remaining *pure* amongst the non-believers.
I believe it. But, what bugs me, is oft times they leave their country with oppressive religious practices and bring the damn things with them!
This is so true. Fine. Keep them to their own little enclave. It’s when it spills over.
Exactly. I never used to think like this but when you read stories of people who live in areas of Paris who can no longer walk in certain districts… it just makes me boil over.
It’s the same in London. And we now how gangs of *groomers* who rape the girls, all underage, and then put them out as prostitutes. And what does our government do? In fairness, they are now beginning to look at it. After 20 long years of it. But everyone’s so scared to say the obvious, despite the mountain of undeniable evidence. Cos that is racism. Oh, I forgot to say, the girls are white. Stomach turning.
Awful. Just awful.
Happening… or discovered, now come to light, in something like 15 cities. Right, let’s set that subject aside.
Yep… before we get ourselves all up in a tizzy!
Nothing we can do, i don’t suppose. Just… be aware
Yes, this is true.
Such a crisp, well-taken photo. Also, interesting pottery position!
Thank you. Confession… this is my garden. Okay, amend that. It is a shared courtyard. When I first moved in I was all enthusiastic about growing flowers in pots. Until I realised what an infestation of snails we had. So I am the one who has abandoned the pots. And the wind has done the rest.
Well, excellent accidental landscaping!
