Trio lurking in an archway at Fisherman’s Bastion in Budapest.
The theme for this week’s photo challenge was set before the events of Friday night. The strapline “Forget the sad times. This week, it’s all about revelling in a win.” rings hollow now. And yet. The victory is not in the forgetting. Or the revelling. But in the hanging in there, keeping going, in life continuing and new shoots appearing despite everything.
As with these plants in the colours of the Tricolore.
What a wonderful treat it was earlier this year when I was able to arrive a day before the start of a conference, and so have time to explore beautiful Malta a bit! I loved wandering the streets of Valletta. No particular plan, just wandering down little alleys, enjoying the views, the beauty, the sun, the warmth. Perfect!
Careful – not all these beautiful berries are safe to eat! If any – I really don’t have a clue ;-)
