Sculpture Saturday #50 – March 20, 2021

Sculpture Saturday is hosted by Susan Kelly at No Fixed Plans.

Today I thought I’d post some humble garden sculptures that can be purchased at your nearby nursery or hardware store.

Even a humble flower pot can be a work of art!

Ragtag Daily Prompt: Jagged

As Princess Pirouette spent weeks organizing the outdoor concert, nothing could go wrong. The day arrived and nearly the entire court was assembled on the South Lawn of the palace. Baron von Maxwell was the conductor and the program was an eclectic mix of contemporary and ancient music. As the orchestra opened with Nos Esprits Libres et Contents. The audience was fairly buzzing with excitement.

Because of her much inferior rank, Tata Sous-sus sat in a chair far in the back. Although she was unwell and should have stayed home, she insisted on attending. Shortly after the program commenced, she began to cough and wheeze, blowing her nose loudly in her handkerchief. By the time the first song was over, the entire audience was enraged by her behavior, but what was to be done? Baron von Maxwell had tried to conduct the orchestra with restrained equanimity; however, he finally lost his composure, walked into the back of the chairs where Tata Sous-sus sat and plunged his conductor’s wand into her chest as if it were a dagger. While he cause her no bodily harm, her dress was left with a jagged tear in the bodice. She jumped from her seat and fled the scene in tears. After that, she became known as Auntie Finale.

Alive & Trekking Which Way Photo Challenge: March 19, 2021

It is always a pleasure to participate in the Which Way Challenge, hosted by Alive & Trekking.

And there are even more prohibitions!

At left is the Maryland State Seal. The colony was founded in 1632 by a wave of King Charles I (the one who got his head chopped off by the Puritans). It was a proprietary colony given to George Calvert, the first Lord Baltimore. The King graciously named the colony after his French-born wife, Henrietta Maria, known in England as Queen Mary. Lord Baltimore envisioned Maryland as a refuge for English Catholics, who faced some serious persecution in the Motherland.

Siam Café

For Fandango’s Flashback Friday: This was taken on March 19, 2014 in Lewisburg, PA at my favorite Thai restaurant. Actually it was the only Thai restaurant, and as luck would have it, the food was excellent. The music was quite good too.
