This week K’Lee of K’Lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge has chosen the prompt. What is it I hear you ask, well it is: Unexpected Beauty. #CosPhoChal
Rules and Pingback here
And also here
This weekend Hubby and I went to a Birthday Tea Party for a neighbour. We arrived at an unassuming Village Hall not far from where we live. Inside we found unexpected beauty.
The on the way home, when the sky looked it’s darkest suddenly Nature showed us some unexpected beauty.
That’s all folks have a great day. 💜
Female, wife, full time mother and Grandmother. I am not as happy go lucky as I used to be but I am still bubbling along on simmer! I have three handsome sons all grown and flown.The youngest married with a beautiful wife and two sons of his own. Eleven years ago I was working, running a home, driving and socializing then bang in a split second all that was gone. I had an accident at home. I broke my back, not for the first time, I had broken it 10 years previously as well. Unfortunately this time I had broken it really badly and it was truly messed up so I had to have two operations. I was told before each operation that the outcome could mean I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. Still as some guy once wrote "I am still standing " yes "better than I ever was " not quite but with the help of a walking stick and as long as I do not stand or sit in one position for too long, I am still standing! Update I no longer use the walking stick . I had lots of friends before the accident but when things like this happen, you loose most of them. Their lives move on and mine stood still and so they left me behind ...I know that is just the way life is but it hurt and always will. Then I looked around and saw those who were still there for me, these friends are the roses in my garden they need to be tended well. They are the diamonds in the dust, I will of been married 50yrs plus this year . Pain and boredom are my enemies now, I have to find different ways to approach life, use my pain befriend it almost...yer right , well that is what they tell me at the pain clinic ROFLMAO ...... if only I could! I have found an outlet for my fears, frustrations and night terrors . I have started writing poetry if that name can be applied to my writing. I hope I do not come over as a moaning winger. I hope I am past all that. I also hope that you might see how the poetry is moving from very dark through the grey and
hopefully in to light ??
I need to update this a little here. I have worked very hard over the years since my accident, I go to the gym regularly, I have a Pilates class and a core class once a week . The guys at the gym and my Pilates teacher cajoled, teased, bullied and encouraged me to abandon my walking stick! :) My back is no longer straight it is C shaped because of the injury and I have lost two and a half inches in height but my Pilates and Core teachers have helped me to stand up as straight and as strongly as possible. Pain and depression are still hanging on my arm but I have weapons to use against them and if I say so myself I cope well.
I have made lots of new friends, real diamonds. I am also very grateful for all the support and help I have encountered here on Wordpress. Hugs and welcome to everyone who visits.

Fun to see photos of the beautiful teacups, teapots, etc. – an authentic English tea party that we sometimes try to imitate over here. Lovely! And those rainbows – wow! Have a good day, Willow. Just going to bed here. 💕💕
It was a lovely little tea room and a fun afternoon. The Rainbows were Beautiful too. Sleep well Betty I am starting another day 💜💜
Love those teapots sis! And the rainbow!
They were gorgeous, so very pretty and the Rainbow was an unexpected added bonus! 🌹💜
Wow, you had a bumper crop of perfect photo opportunities this week. An excellent selection, thank you.
Yes and all in one afternoon 💜💝💖 mind your photo was a brilliant spot!
I especially liked the knitted hat (or whatever it is called) over the teapot.
It’s called a Tea Cosy! Thank you 💜🌹
Wow! The tea settings caught me off guard in the best way possible… unexpectedly! The rainbow shots, especially the one showing reflections on the road’s surface… unexpected beauty indeed… well done!
