Monday Musing’s 16th May 2022…

Welcome to Monday Musings where I share some things that have thrilled me, made me think or smile or even have a mini-rant although that didn’t happen often during the last week…May is in full swing now we are flying through the months…

This week is Mental Health Week and Clive has highlighted how important mental health is…please head over and have a read and if you are not already please be mindful…just a smile, a nod can make someone’s day its true what they say “Smile and the World Smiles Back”

I don’t about you but life seems to take over at times…not enough hours in the day…that is why I love a weekly roundup of blogs, and news it’s a time where I can “Take 5” and just relax and catch up…

I have long been an admirer of Cindy’s photography and I especially love plants and trees…this beautiful Joshua tree has been captured by Cindy in bloom...the story behind it is a fascinating one…in the past, they were pollinated by Giant Sloths It always amazes me how plants and animals coexist to survive…

Standing straight and proud against a desert background the blooms must have been magnificent to see…please head over to Cindy’s blog to see the blooms in all their glory…

The Eurovision Song Contest…

I still remember when Sandi Shaw won, Lulu, Brotherhood of Man, Bucks Fizz, Katrina and the Waves then it got political …It has been many years since I watched it or even showed any interest in it…I am pleased that Ukraine won it though and amazed that the Uk came second..wow that’s not happened for many a year…in case you missed it…(like me)

That’s all for today I hope you all have a glorious week…our rainy season is upon us the grass and my trees are definitely lapping it up…I love a good tropical storm… but I am hoping when I go to the UK I get some sun as I remember the cold biting rains there…and those I can do without…I have no shoes only flip flops…

Thank you for joining me today I look forward as always to your comments… tomorrow it’s chicken  ..chicken is so very versatile…one of my favourite proteins quick and easy to cook!

    Those Joshua tree blooms were amazing. I have cacti in my garden that have stunning flowers, but nothing that big and architectural!
    I haven’t watched Eurovision for years either so it was interesting to watch the video. I actually rather like the song even though I don’t like rap. Kind of reminded me of Linkin Park back in the day.

    I have been wondering all day how big giant sloths were and how they did the pollinating! I follow Cindy’s blog and love seeing pictures of places I am not likely to find myself in!
    I usually avoid the Eurovision, though my daughter always has a little Eurovision party. I watched it this year to support Ukraine, my late father-in-law was Ukrainian, also quite excited at the prospect we might do well! I enjoyed quite a few of the songs and the voting turned out to be exciting.

      I, unfortunately, didn’t get to see it, Janet only saw the news but I did get the impression it was a better than normal Eurovision maybe it has turned a corner for the better…I agree about Cindy’s blog she takes us to some amazing places 🙂 x

    Thank you for the link to my post, Carol, it is much appreciated. I’m with you on the Eurovision too, not because of the political voting but because most of the songs are absolute rubbish and I can think of much better ways to spend a Saturday evening! Hopefully you will get good weather when you are here, though you may need to swap those flip flops for wellies 😉 x

      I hope so Darlene but come rain or shine my main purpose is to see my mum and my daughter as she is not coping too well with the cancer treatment now so I feel it is time mum went to see her and spend time with her I am hoping to surprise her 🙂 xoxo
