(2nd) Happy Days Project :)

I adore the ease and instant gratification of Instagram - I just have my phone near me all the time away and the camera on it is great and can capture a wee image at any time. Then of course there are the digital filters to play around with = fun :)

Here is the second installation of my series of 100 happy days - really rather varied - click to enlarge.

21-Whitehead's Victorian Train Station;  22-The famous Albert clock in Belfast;  23-Daffodil farm in Scotland;  24-Us at the Glenfiddich Whisky Distillery;  25-Locally brewed pint in the Loch Ness Inn

26- Castle Urquhart;  27- Lovely Glencoe;  28-Spring has arrived in the garden;  29-Simple rice, peas, beans and chilli sauce - yummy;  30- My love bird salt and pepper

31- Maggie enjoying the sunshine and those tulips;  32-Dunluce Castle;  33-Lunch of melon, natural yoghurt and dried fruit outside!  34-My gnomes on the plot :)  35-Back into yoga properly and first mandala coloured in a while

36- Rhubarb and Ginger compote;  37-Sweetcorn coming along nicely;  38-Fabulous abandoned door in Bushmills;  39-My two favourites at Springhill;  40-Maggie kills her nemesis (everyday)
Just love all these reminders of good days, or even just one good moment in a bad day (eg. rice and chilli sauce photo). Still continuing with it... http://instagram.com/chrryblossomtat2

We haven't been at the allotment for a little well now due to weather and Andrew's job (working a whole Saturday at Dunluce!) I have some lovely photos to share of Dunluce and 2 National Trust properties we've visited (we're now members!!) Today is the Giro d'Italia in our area and the whole place is on lock down, haha. So much PINK! xxx

Love and hugs

  5. We have Le Tour starting in Yorkshire but it shouldn't be coming our way unless it heads down the motorway.

  7. As always, I love your pictures. I clicked on these and they're even better bigger. You are a very talented photographer. I still say you could easily become a food photographer as your food shots and garden shots are always amazing. You get the right light, placement and angle of the shot in food photographers. It's not easy to do this. I've tried and mine come out lousy.

    Instagram looks interesting. I'll have to check it out. Although I haven't been taking pictures lately.

    You sound good:~)

    1. I have been a photographer in the past, selling works of all kinds. Being a professional food photographer would be so cool! But with my poor health it would be hard to meet deadlines. BUT thank you for the compliment Sara xxx
      Instagram is so fun - if you do join, let me know!

I love to have visitors but LOVE it even more when they leave a little nugget of happiness behind in the form of a comment. I thank you for taking the time to send a little joy my way xx
