This week for Friday’s Hunt and Weekend Reflections, the letter is D, your favourite and my choice.  I start with my FAVOURITE and really it is my CHOICE as well and that are the 2 shots below.  However why I like  the shots so much of this beautiful young lady, srniling while, standing in front of DAFFODILS, (who is someone's DAUGHTER) in a pretty DRESS, is because it was raining and she had an umbrella up but on seeing me taking her photograph, she lowered it so I could take the image.  
Isn’t she very pretty?

For the letter D I am showing you DOGS.  Firstly the DOG statue was at the Zoo.  It was life size.

They say, ‘Let sleeping DOGS lie’ and certainly that would be good advice about these Wild DOGS at the Zoo.

Recently I was waiting for my bird group to arrive at Ballyholme beach and was photographing the DOGS with their owners and these are most of the ones I saw in 10 minutes.  

That DOG has 8 legs!!!  Oops it is my REFLECTION image and there is another one in the electric car’s windows below.

I finish with this electric DRIVE car. 
A lot of Taxi's in Amsterdam were Electric.  We travelled in one from the Airport and it was so quiet.  I think this is the way forward. My son in law has just brought an electric motorcar.

Many thanks for visiting and also for leaving comments.

GOOD FENCES - Mount Stewart Lake

Today I am linking with GOOD FENCES and although there is not much of a fence here with these ducklings below, I thought I would show you the female Swan with her three cygnets who were in the lake at Mount Stewart House and Gardens near Newtownards.  The lake certainly had me 'fenced' in!  

On the other side of the lake I found the male Swan sleeping on the old nest having a well-earned rest.

Many thanks for your visit and also your comments.

Flowers at Mount Stewart Gardens

While photographing at Mount Stewart, near Newtownards last week, after I stopped for some lunch with the Robin and Great Tit (Yesterday’s post),
 I walked round the beautiful lake and these are the flowers 
I saw and photographed.

I hope these flowers brought you pleasure.

THROUGH MY LENS - Mount Stewart House

I have never shown you the Salon in the National Trust Property of Mount Stewart near Newtownards so here are some images of this beautiful comfy room.  I am linking it with THROUGH MY LENS.  

 This is a shot of the garden through one of the the Salon's windows.

This is a shot taken from the main Entrance Hall through the Salon
 into the garden.
