Desktop Delights – May 2021

Thank you to everyone who shared their desktop images this month.

It’s a pleasure to welcome a few newcomers and see regulars continuing to share and join the fun. As usual, I encourage you to take a look at the wonderful desktop delights on offer.

Martin was the first cab off the rank this month, or perhaps I should say the first train out of the station with a photo of a train that has just crossed the viaduct over Dollis Brook – the highest point above ground level anywhere on the London Underground network. Visit his post to read the history lesson that accompanies his image.

The next desktop belongs to Cee with a gorgeous field of Tulips and a warning sign to Keep Out! We went on to have a conversation regarding peoples inability to do that and how sad that reality is. None of this takes away from Cee’s lovely photo.

Russell joined in this month and shared both a wonderful photo of two dearly departed felines, as well as a heartwarming back story about them and the photo – thank you, Russell.

I was feeling rather jealous when I saw Aletta’s gorgeous bunch of Proteas. Somehow the words ‘stunning’ and ‘beautiful’ seem an inadequate description so make sure you follow the link and see what Aletta is viewing on her desktop.

Ladysighs shared another bright and colourful desktop. This one was created with Inkscape and contains lovely green and purple hues together with what I originally thought were butterflies but, on closer inspection, I believe they are little orchids.

Brian presented us with a gorgeous butterfly (I imagine) sipping nectar from a flower. I’ve no idea what type of butterfly, nor what type of flower, but I’m hoping Brian might enlighten us when he reads this 😊

Woolly Muses joined in this month and shared a shot taken at low tide at Curio Bay’s Griffin Gully which is in Geelong, Victoria (Australia). There is something hauntingly beautiful about the low tide and pre-dawn light in this wonderful image.

And it wouldn’t be the same without Becky joining in. She shared a shot from a collection she mulled over a couple of months ago. There’s a boat tied to the dock, the skies are a little grey (ok, quite grey) and there are lots (and lots) of gulls flying about. I told Becky it reminded me of the gulls in Finding Nemo – “Mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, mine” 😂

So, yes, there have been some terrific desktops shared this month.

Here are a few photos I mulled over. Don’t be surprised to see one (or two) featured over the coming months.

On June 15, I’ll share the new image on my desktop.

But you don’t have to wait until then.

You can join in anytime.

    1. Thanx Becky. I think it’s important to acknowledge those who take the time to join the fun, and I’m loving their comments like “So glad you encourage me to change what I’m looking at” 🤗
