Thanks again for putting my Honesty picture at the top. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw it yesterday.
Here is the Market Street in the local town of Solothurn on a market day which takes place twice a week, Saturday and Wednesday morning.
Our village of Feldbrunnen, just down the main road from Solothurn, is actually split into two parts. The bottom part, South, where we live that borders onto the River Aar and the top part, North, know as St. Niklaus, that lays at the foot of the Jura mountains. Here is a view of St. Niklaus, a conglomeration of farms and country houses.
Here is part of the agricultural zone that surrounds our little village just after the harvest.
Hi all sorry I did not get back to everybodys contribution last week had a crazy busy time, I love the theme this week Benni and here are my three images. Everybody have a wonderful weekend;) City Lights - Down Town Detroit, Michigan, USA

Hi, this is Benni and I will be your host this week. I just returned from a visit to my brother in Chicago and was inspired while there. But I am mostly a country mouse, not a city mouse, and tend to enjoy smaller towns and the countryside as well.
So the theme for this week is a mix-or-match theme: 3 shots in any combination of a city, town or the countryside. All 3 can be of the city, or 2 of one and one of another and so forth.
I hope you have fun taking or finding pictures. Congratulations to Pat on her lovely green Honesty plants which serve as this week's banner.
Chicago's busy O'Hare airport.
Formally named "Cloud Gate", this stainless steel structure is universally known in Chicago as "The Bean".
North of Chicago, on Lake Michigan, sit these summer houses in the village of Holland.
Ok, down to the wire again. LOL. What is happening with me and the time line? I have been checking in after work, just thinking 'where this theme will take me?' but as of today, I have been really way out on a green limb of sorts. Well time to get off the pot, so here is what I have for this weeks theme. A really good theme it is too. Kind of pushes the mind to come up with something new, but alas new is not in the cards this time. So from my eyes and the files taken before, here is a real bugger for me. Green dragonfly.
Or here we have some new green life unfolding before my eyes. A fern is born.
Ok last, and still keeping it small. A green back drop for a butterfly, with a splash of color in between. Have fun and always carry the camera. When you don't have it with you the moments always show them selves. Sheesh, I need to live by my own words here. LOL.
Hi Mitch and everyone else still around this Tuesday into a Green week.
Not my favourite colour either, though I love the green countryside after a spring rain. That is not going to happen here as we are in the middle of winter. Spring Day is way on, 1st September and the first rains only expected about October, November.
Got some greens for you anyway *smile*

Loves and Hugs. "I wonder what this darling granddaughter of ours is going to grow up to be.........." My husband asked me:- Will she be pretty? Will she be rich?" Here's what I said to him ....................... "Que, sera, sera, whatever will be will be, the future not ours to see ......." .............. "As long as she is happy, healthy and safe.......... "
I wonder ............... "can he sell this old kettle or use it himself?"
I wonder ............. "what song did the old gramophone play last?"
