The Outer Limits

There is nothing wrong with your PC. Do not attempt to adjust your screen.
We are controlling the Internet.
We will control the horizontal.
We will control the vertical.
We will control your conservatory.
clematis growing inside the conservatory

We will control the Venetian blinds.
We will even control the chandelier.
And we are taking over your house.
We can change the focus to a soft blur,
or sharpen it to crystal clarity.
For the next few minutes, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear.
You are about to participate in a great adventure.
You're about to experience the awe
fox glove mutation

and mystery
bean with an angel on it

which reaches from the inner mind to ... The Outer Limits!


Well, we could but we won't, because we're going on a holiday. Not to worry, we'll be back soon, so watch this space!

All those beautiful pictures should keep us busy for a while. Have a great fun & safe holiday!

I was a Twilight Zone person myself - the Outer Limits was always just a little bit too scarey and had me hiding behind the couch. (LOL - those were the days when I could even get down to get behind a couch!) T.

Ooo, what a lovely trip round your garden on my return from northern Spain. It was good to catch up with you - everything looks stunning and I'm envious of your gooseberries.

Have a great trip Yolanda.

I was wondering where you were going with this post. Have a great vacation and take lots of pictures

LostRoses said...

Lovely and fun composition, Yolanda Elizabeth. Have a happy vacation!

Birgit said...

Dieser Post von Dir ist ja wirklich originell, Yolanda. So viele verschiedene, aber trotzdem kreative und schöne Fotos! Der kleine Tiger zwischen den Ferkeln: Einfach zauberhaft, genau wie die 5 kleinen Kätzchen. So eine Fingerhut-Mutation habe ich neulich schon mal in unserer Heimat-Zeitung gesehen. Was für eine Laune der Natur. Und dass Du immer einen Blick für die kleinen schönen Dinge im Leben hast, zeigt das Foto mit dem Engel auf der Bohne. Einfach nur schön. Hier gießt es gerade mal wieder aus Kübeln. Ich wünsche Dir eine schöne, möglichst regenfreie Woche und schöne Tage im Garten und mit deinen Tieren. LG Birgit
