PhotoHunter: messy

I didn't expect to enter this week's Photo Hunt because we have only just arrived in France.

Sadly though, we found that person we had hoped would pop into the house and keep an eye on things didn't. As a result things are rather neglected, and I can offer you a selection of messy looking plants :(



Unfotunately there are more, but I will leave it at these two, and instead cheer myself up by showing an example of a wall that is very messy on close inspection, but I like the overall effect of age. It runs along the alley that leads down to the river.

A happy and peaceful New Year to everyone!

  18. The poor plants ! Next time stick a small bottle filled with water upside down in the plant then it can take the water it needs. A friend of mine always does it and it works perfectly. The wall looks rather romantic !

    Poor plants! But now you are at home. Perhaps all will come in order for them and they will be saved. Thanks for your visit A. and I hope you will have a beautiful sunday whereas I will in Avignon to discover again the Palace of the Popes and the areas.

  23. Sorry to hear about your poor plants. Make that person buy you some new ones - I would! I really like old walls - so much more attractive than modern brickwork, messy or not. Happy New Year!

  26. Happy New Year. I thought I would drop by after you visited me and I find once again that it is a small world - or blogosphere as I recognize many others who visit you too.
    I have enjoyed reading your blog and your wonderful photos.
