April Scavenger Hunt

I haven't managed to collect all the items in the scavenger hunt this month and so I am posting a day early. I am pleased with the ones I did get, though I blame the weather and the various hospital visits for lack of opportunity to complete it in full!
So here are the 9 out of 12 I did do.

Spring- spring flowers in town, planted out as a Union Jack in honour of the Queen's Jubilee. I love this so much I have started to use it as the wallpaper on my laptop.


Multi-coloured- multi-coloured plastic eggs hiding Easter chocolate treats.


Sticky- S had a sticky face after eating this candyfloss.


Direction- we went bowling during the school holiday back at the start of the month and so here we have the lane markings pointing in the direction of the remaining pins which will hopefully soon be in a downwards direction!


On the move- the sun was out and it was so warm when I came home from work on Friday I didn't want to waste it so S and I went down for a walk along the shore. The Queen Mary was on the move out of the docks, no doubt to somewhere an awful lot warmer.


Smile- smiles all round on Saturday afternoon when Saints were promoted to the Championship! This was hastily snapped off the TV.



Rock- half a stick of rock which was in the fridge. Part of a thank you present from our neighbours to us for feeding their cat when they went away.



In/Out- I was so pleased with this one which again I took during the school holidays. Some of the tulips are in bud and some are out in bloom, some in the sunlight and some out of it.


Tangle- this is S's hair brush, we use a tangle teeser as recommended by the hairdressers for her lovely curly hair. Apparently it was a product idea which was rejected in the Dragon's Den but which the inventor has gone on to be very successful with. Certainly works for S.


The ones I didn't get were 'amazing', 'can't live without' and 'indulgence'. All of which I could say there are plenty of on this blog already, they can be found within the hundreds of photos of my wonderful little family!

Thanks for your recent comments. I missed your posts about hospital visits, I'll have to catch up, hope everything is fine now.

You've done very considering! I love your idea for in/out and the photo is beautiful. The candyfloss one is great too! I'd have to travel a long way to find candyfloss or rock, but I did think of both of those things!

I know, but if the saints had stayed where they were, there would have been a chance of us playing them in Southampton again!!!!!!!! I love the Union Jack flowers xxxxxx

Great photo of S, and yes, candyfloss is very sticky. Lovely tulips, I'm regretting not getting round to planting any in autumn.

Paula said...

What a cool picture of the union jack in flowers I can see why it would be a favourite!

A tagle teaser sounds like something I need in my life with my youngest!

Well done on getting so many of your pictures.

The tulips are beautiful, I am also regretting not planting more in autumn. The union jack is great - the build up to the jubilee really seems to be gathering steam. It'll be a good weekend - looking forward to red/white/blue themed scavenger hunting!

Rosie said...

You are the first I've found to use sweet seaside rock for rock. I love your choices - especially in/out:)

Little Blue Mouse said...

That is a gorgeous photo for 'in/out'!

Alex said...

The tulip picture is just beautiful - I love the colour of them and the light.

Ruth Kelly said...

Yes, I agree the floral union jack was a winner. I never think of rock candy but it comes in second.

Jay said...

This is a lovely idea, and the display of flowers looks beautiful, hopefully they didn't get ruined with all this rain?!

Glo said...

What a lovely selection ~ quality makes up for quantity with your 9 super shots. Loved them all.

Simone said...

I especially like the in/out one too. Very inventive! x

What beautiful tulips, I only had 3 this year. I enjoyed looking at your photos, 9 out of 12 is good, last month I didn't manage any.
