May Photo Scavenger Hunt

Here is my selection for May.

Good things
There's always lots of good things going on at Covent Garden

Small packages

Reminds me of my favourite film "The Sound of Music"
...brown paper packages tied up with string...


The mere whiff of this bottle of Youth Dew by Estee Lauder always takes me
straight back to my wedding day - even now just taking this photo

This is the little station half way along Southend Pier


I just love the nose on my lion bookend which so reminds me of
Charlie one of our lovely, sadly departed cats

Congratulations Ma'am

Keeping to the 'Jubilee'  theme

A lovely refreshing cup of Earl Grey

Does this Monopoly money count?
This is from the original box that we used to play with as children - many years ago!

Where else but Windsor Castle?

The gorgeous Broom bush in my garden

Do you see what I see?
Fishing with eldest grandson - the one that 'didn't' get away!!

I hope you've enjoyed my selection and many thanks again to Kathy for arranging this challenge.

Bye for now x


  1. Great selection Patricia, and I remember the smell of youth dew very well! My mum used to wear it, such a gorgeous fragrance!

  2. Great photos, Patricia! Love yellow, historic and nose! I too remember the smell of Youth Dew:)

  3. Great photos. I really like yellow, nose and your Sound of Music moment for small packages.

  4. A really good collection! Love the little packages and the jubilee feel to 9.
    The monopoly money was a great idea.

  5. What a great set of photos - I like 'do you see what i see' and 'currency'.

  6. What a great group of photos, I like your yellow.

  7. Ha ha, that fish one is brilliant! Very clever with thecard and monopoly money! I enjoyed this hunt!

  8. Lovely photos - I like that you used so many along the jubilee theme, very clever! I'm with you on Covent Garden - love it there; love your lion and good thought with the monopoly money :-)

  9. I love your selection of photos especially the monopoly money, the card and the one that got away!

  10. I like your lion and I'm sure Monopoly money is fine for currency. Shame we can't use it in real life.

  11. I see that so many bloggers do the Scavenger Hunt and am amazed at some of the wonderful photos generated to fulfill the challenge! The monopoly money was clever as well as the playing card! Good luck with the next Hunt!

  12. I love the photo of Windsor Castle.

  13. Hi, I just found your warm and friendly blog. I too am a wife, mother and grandmother. I recently retired and started blogging about my many interests. The thing that I enjoy the most is meeting new people and making friends with other like minded women from around the world. Thank you for sharing your little adventure. Blogging may be the only way I will ever travel abroad. I am your newest follower. Please accept my warm invitation to visit and hopefully to decide to follow me, too. Connie :)

  14. Covent Garden used to be one of my favourite places when I lived in London, I immediately thought of the song from Sound of Music when I saw your little packages, they so cute.


I love comments! Thank you for taking the time to pop by and let me know what you think.
