Friday photo challenge (week 40) Purple & a super-duper summer round-up!

This week’s photo challenge theme is ‘purple’, I spied this autumn crocus on my Monday morning walk up the Rock. But how about some purple stalactites? You can find them in St Michael’s Cave…

I spotted this purple Bee in Manchester, you can read all about the Bees here.

I just love a hydrangea…

And a little purple plant I painted at watercolour class…

So that’s this week’s photo challenge entry done, now to take a look back at what everyone else has been up to over the summer:

As things got a bit hectic at times during the summer I didn’t manage to do a monthly round-up, so here’s a mega round-up of some of the entries to the weekly Postcard from Gibraltar Friday photo challenge (the photos are from Instagram and were taken by other people taking part in the Postcard from Gibraltar Friday photo challenge), thank you to everyone who’s taken part!

Week 27 : Golden

Animals are always popular!

…. but if you fancy an adorable tale about a precious favourite toy, hop on over to Wild Daffodil.

Aren’t these button pictures cute? Sandra at Wild Daffodil made some beautiful crocheted buttons…

Margaret’s beautiful silk ribbon embroidery is just breathtaking in her Crafty Creek entry for stitch

And it was a scenic rather than moral viewpoint which Margaret at The Crafty Creek opted for for her entry.

    1. It’s my pleasure Sandra, I’m just sorry it took me so long to get round to the round-up, things as always have been rather busy and I didn’t have the time before now! Got there in the end though! Next week, I hope to have a monthly meet-up for you after a month and a bit missing in action!!! 😉
