I'm joining Annie at Friday Smiles for a smile to start the weekend off right. I'm not sure how many smiles this post will bring, but I'm hoping you will at least smile at the flower bed.
The tulips are still not showing any signs of blooms,
but the hyacinths
have bloomed nicely.
However, that is not why I am posting today. Last Friday I visited Elizabeth's blog (The Silver Scrapper) where she talked about her daughter searching for a bag in her bag. According to Elizabeth:
Here in Scotland, since the bag charge was introduced in 2014, we're well practiced at carrying a stash of bags wherever we go, just in case, but it can be quite a struggle to release them from captivity :)In my comment I noted:
I've never heard of the bag charge, but I think it's probably a good idea. When I got home yesterday, I noticed a plastic bag had gotten caught in a high branch of the tree in my front yard. I commend you for carrying bags.
As of yesterday (Thursday, March 10), that plastic bag is/was still there. So while I was out admiring my blooms,
I took a few pictures of this plastic bag blowing in the wind. This is the view from my driveway
and this is the view from my front porch.
Now that I've shown you this errant bag, I hope you smile and pick up your plastic bags before they find their way to my tree, too.
And of course, I hope you visit Annie at A Stitch in Time to start your weekend off with a smile.
