Six Word Saturday ~~ Oh Dear, Oh Dear

my Six Words:
Rabbits ate my pansies ~~ Any Suggestions? 

We've only seen one rabbit, he is a pretty little fellow.  Although he doesn't seem to grow much maybe eating so good in our back yard/garden he just might grow some more.

We call it "He" and "Him" when talking about it.  But since he respects the flower diet so much I'm thinking that he might be a girl. 


Top is a close up of the bottom one.  Evidently he likes the blooms and the buds best, then the tender leaves up on the tops. [You can click on a picture to see it bigger.]
Middle picture is a front bed.  He didn't eat these so close, some in the back he didn't touch.  Perhaps he is thinking that the LSU guy is a scare crow.

Warm Heart Wednesday ~~ No. 004 ~~ We Travel, # 001

When we travel, some things make my heart warm.  Generally I take a picture on the spot, some I will review, blog, and Warm My Heart again.

In 200 Mrs. Jim and I visited England.  Our kids, Karen, KP, and Bill lived there in London then, for five years.  We stayed with them for quite a while but would travel on side trips while we were on the Continent. 
We visited our friends, Graham and Marian who live in Northamptonshire.  That involved a short train ride up to Milton Keynes from London, where our friends picked us up. 
One of the things we did there was to visit the Spencer mansion at Althorp. (link)  Althorp is where Princess Diana of Wales grew up.  Now, after her death in 1997, Princes Diana is buried in a small lake in the top picture.  [You may click on any picture to make it larger.  The back button will return you here.]

Pictures taken on our Princess cruise from Venus to Istanbul, 
over to the Black Sea, and back past Istanbul over to Athens, Greece
Top row: Three generation picture.  KP and Karen came with us, BP in the picture taken before we left was already starting school.  She graduated last spring and now is in college. 
KP loved the ship and the ship activities.  Food too, pizza was her favorite.  Even for breakfast.  KP single photo, left, was taken in The Ukraine at the mansion where the Yalta Conference (link) was held in 1945.
Dogs were everywhere, especially in Istanbul.  Mark Twain remarked about them in his letters back to California while on his European cruise, from New York city and back (my prior blog).  Back then it was Constantinople.
Monks still live in these mountain top monasteries.  We visited two of them on our way back to Athens.


Cars, three in the U.K.
Top: Left, a part of a boutique display in a London Market.  Right, this little car was parked on the street near Paul McCartney's home. I don't know its make. Other London cars appearing on my blog (link).
Bottom: This old Morgan belonged to some visitors at Althorp (above).  We parked near it when we came but it was gone when we left.
Warm Heart Wednesday for the week of December 11 through December 18. Click here, for links of others or for directions to join with a post of your own. Ms. Jenny there is our teacher.
