Home

Hello there....

This week's word prompt at 
has been chosen for us by Kirsty - The word is 
Home

This is how Home for me looked yesterday... Cold wet and icy with the occasional snow fall  


Even my Christmas cactus has been fooled into blooming


Of course we don't have it as bad as some of you do ... 
Liverpool is my home, a sea port, a city with immense history
We have 2 football teams 2 cathedrals and funny accent
No, we don't have a beautiful aqua coloured river


and skies are not always blue, but we are a colourful city with a warm welcome


Dotted around this city you can see what we call the lamb bananas - so called because they were originally yellow and resembled bananas but we changed that


Mixed in with some of the most stunning architecture, my home has quirky things that make you laugh...

And amazing things that make me proud 
This is the Black Pearl - made from reclaimed and salvaged goods from the beach, built by volunteers and sitting proudly on the other side of the river from me


The evidence of our history as a sea port is everywhere and most of the old dock buildings have been refurbished and are now apartments


This is Home to me..It's where my heart is

Go visit the blog to see what my friends are sharing this week at

Have a lovey day

Awesome showcase of HOME!
RE: my OBW home post
Yes, they are tulips, I know it is crazy to even think that tulips can grow here in the dessert, we are already having weather in the 80s, but oh well, just try!
