    Good forecast for my holliday week. We’ve been to Branféré today, it’s an animal and botanic parc in Morbihan. I’m not normaly into zoos, in fact I dislike them a lot. We like this place because animals are not behind bars, and a lot of them can move where they want, included birds who don’t have their wings cut.

    It was very quiet but muddy. I took those pictures today.

    Lovely in the garden, no wind and sunshine.

    The Cock Robin is singing along

    and the deers having their lunch

    Babeth I love your photos unfortunately I don’t do instagram so I can’t follow your blog. Where did you buy your camera?

    12th February 2019 at 6:35 pm #456534

    Thank you Flowergirl. I bought it in Darty in Redon, but I suppose you can find it else where as it is a well known model LUMIX DMC TZ70. It is not cheap for a pocket camera (250€ + the protection box), but I feel it worth it for me, for all the pleasure I get out of it.

    I’ve just check on Darty, but it seems they don’t have it any more. They must sell a better one now, it a bit like everything else, out of fashion after 6 months ! But I’m sure you can find one else where.

    Here is another pic I took this afternoon, this is the Nantes/Brest Canal, in front of Saint Perreux swamp, a bit ghostly.

    Keep them coming, Babeth, they’re terrific!

    12th February 2019 at 7:49 pm #456541

    Thank you Tigre

    Gorgeous photos Babeth  :good:

    13th February 2019 at 11:00 am #456675

    Does anybody else got picture to share ? I like taking them but also like looking at others ;-)

    13th February 2019 at 1:35 pm #456681

    Took these on my walk this morning (you’ve already seen on FB Babeth, but I can share them on here)

    And one of our Daphne shrub – the scent is divine!

    13th February 2019 at 1:37 pm #456682

    You do not want to see the photo I had last night Babeth, of the lesser fractured metatarsal

    13th February 2019 at 4:56 pm #456706

    Lovely photos, Fruitcake. Our neighbour has a large Daphne shrub, as you say they smell gorgeous!

    Gleaner, what have you been up to now!!!

    13th February 2019 at 5:24 pm #456712

    Went on a trip, with unwanted consequences  :negative:

    13th February 2019 at 5:32 pm #456713

    I don’t mind seing them twice Fruitcake, they are beautiful :rose:   And why not Gleaner, your metartasal must be a peace of modern art ;-)   Hope it’s not too painfull though :cry:

    13th February 2019 at 5:36 pm #456714

    I just love the craic, never thought I’d able to get a shot of it though

    13th February 2019 at 5:48 pm #456718

    Outhch ! Sharp indeed ! Don’t forget to eat a lot of calcium. I suppose you have a plaster some sort. How long will it take with not standing on on your foot ?

    13th February 2019 at 6:00 pm #456720

    3 months so they reckon. Which is a real beeeeeach. I got logs to move, big logs. No plaster, just some hard support. Don’t want to hijack your thread babeth, so please continue to brighten my sofa bound day with fabulous shots of the incoming spring.

    13th February 2019 at 6:48 pm #456732

    You’re welcome to hijack this thread Gleaner. Here is another shot of the incoming spring. Our climbing rose wishing Bill and me Valentine day one day ahead !

    13th February 2019 at 7:17 pm #456733

    Hopefully Gleaner, it may not take quite as long to heal, try and rest it as much as possible.

    13th February 2019 at 7:27 pm #456735

    Sorry you have an injury Gleaner, painful! Three months? That’s a bummer! As tigre says if you behave you never know it might be less. You certainly can’t be shifting logs!

    13th February 2019 at 9:15 pm #456775

    Crikey Gleaner, poor you.

    Hope it heals soon for you  :rose:

    13th February 2019 at 9:17 pm #456777

    Not quite up to Gleaner’s pain I’m sure, but I crushed my thumb at work yesterday, below shows the result today next to the other one. Amazing how awkward it is to be without a working thumb.

    13th February 2019 at 9:21 pm #456779

    Hopefully, VK, you won’t lose your nail,

    13th February 2019 at 9:23 pm #456780

    Poor gleaner …ouch vegimite.

    i lost my splint yesterday…hallelujah!

    that was a long month!

    strangely we don’t really appreciate being healthy until we,re in pain.

    get better soon!

    14th February 2019 at 8:39 am #456803

    That must have hurt VK. Extremities are painful entities in their own right.

    I must admit, that mine was caused by inattention and a besotted dog. Falling off the last step coming down to return a phone call and then hitting the deck wiv me ead, didn’t really help matters. Awakening to find I only had two border collies fussing over me to provide assistance and had to physically drag this beached cetacean like mass across the expanse of living room floor to reach the phone was an added pain in the right royal ass too.  But a quick phone call to my dearest and dearest and 6 hours later all was sorted. Currently sat here awaiting  the nurse to turn up on this frosty morning.

    Happy to hear you are free and clear and devoid of encumbrances though Marmite. Enjoy your spring, it is here I am sure.

    14th February 2019 at 9:09 am #456818

    I can ignore my thumb if I don’t put any pressure on it, Gleaner, but your foot, with such an obvious break in the toe, is much more debilitating. Chances are I will lose the nail once it turns black and the new one grows underneath.

    14th February 2019 at 9:17 am #456820

    Tell me about it. I have crutches, but heaving myself around and doing the simplest task is frustrating and more often than not painful.

    The thing was, the last thing I was aware of was actually hearing my foot crack as I went down. :negative:

    14th February 2019 at 11:48 am #456878

    Oh dear Gleaner, that is a shame.  I did exactly the same bone about 6 years ago and it was blooming painful and took about 6 weeks for the swelling and pain to subside….feet up and watch the w&c  as it could cause another tumble if you have one to many.  :whistle:
    Best wishes…and get well soon.

    14th February 2019 at 11:52 am #456879

    Read that as  “feet up and watch the TV with a W&C”  :yahoo:

    14th February 2019 at 11:55 am #456880

    LOLOL at least you still have your sense of humour! :yahoo:

    14th February 2019 at 1:07 pm #456891

    This is another good sign !
