All my family are coming round my house for a BBQ. As a result, my mother told me to make one of my famous salads for the occasion. You see, I do a pretty incredible salad. I never want anyone to eat it because it always looks to pretty too eat…
Anyway, I kinda got a little carried away as you can see. The problem was I didn’t really have a photograph for this weeks photo challenge. So I made my own masterpiece of the fruit and vegetables available in my fridge and fruit bowl at the time.
My mum asked for a salad… she got this.

Flowers to me, appear to make people feel better. I know that whenever my Dad comes home with flowers, it always makes my mum happily smile.
Flowers are an expression of care. You give flowers to someone to show that you have thought of them. Whether they are going through a tough time or simply just because.
Once when I was little, I was always jealous of my mum because my dad would always bring her flowers and never me. One day he came home, I ran to the door to greet him like usual, and he had flowers in his hand. He knelt on his knee he told me he loved me and gave me the flowers instead of giving them to my mum. I was really shocked and beamed a smile. I gave him a giant hug and I ran into the kitchen and shoved them into a vase and ran upstairs. An hour later my mum came upstairs to see what I have been doing for the last hour or so, because she became suspicious of my quietness. she entered my room laughing, because I had spent ages trying to find the perfect place to put them. But I couldn’t find that perfect place. So my mum just found me sitting in the middle of my bed crying. My mum, gave me a hug and held my hand leading me over to the window sill and took the flower vase out of my hand and placed the on the window sill.
She said ” Now they can see their friends in the garden.”
Flowers are like sunshine, happiness, medicine for your heart.
I challenge you to give someone a flower(s) for no reason. Just because you care about them. I bet it will make them smile.

My brother reminds me of a superhero, strangely, in this photograph. This was after my parents, brother and I climbed up this hill while on a family walk. My brother literally flew up the hill without a single sweat. Unlike me. He was so determined to get to the top. He kept calling rest of us to hurry up as we were too slow; apparently. This was once he got to the top. His face just lit up. He was so pleased with himself. It was worth the struggle and hard work to get the top in the end.
My dog, Sandy, loved it! she just ran in circles with excitement. She’s a strange animal.
