Last photo of April

Happy May 1st, happy birthday to my other uncle Rajko, happy end of April, happy new moon, and happy beginning of the second round of the NBA playoffs!

Today I spent with my visitors from Slovenia, who are travelling around Tuscany, and it felt really good. I can still feel the sun on my face.

We went to the beach and to Capalbio on the hill and I called my uncle from there for his birthday, and then we stopped next to some poppies and olive trees and it was beautiful, and then there was thunder and we returned home since I knew that bestia was trying to climb furniture. He hates thunder.

Throughout I’ve been getting lovely messages about my last April poem, yesterday’s April Magic cento made up with verses from 24 fellow contributors to NaPoWriMo, and I thank you all. It gave me much pleasure to do it.

More about my uncle and his previous birthdays in my blogging memories below, where you can also found the very first Thursday Door I ever posted and it was seven years ago.

As for the the last photo in April, it was this one, untouched:

Bushboy’s rules are simple:

1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for the 30th April.
2. No editing – who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like or the subject matter didn’t cooperate.
3. You don’t have to have any explanations, just the photo will do.
4. Create a Pingback to this post or link in the comments.
5. Tag “The Last Photo”.

A Slovenian in Italy for love. Blogger, photographer, translator and would-be writer who would be a writer if she wrote. Plus reluctant but emerging poet. Beware.

  1. Look at that beautiful golden light on the birds in your last photo for April. Lovely, Manja! Happy Birthday to your uncle! He is your father’s brother? Goodness, they favor!

      1. Yes, it does mean they look alike–they favor each other. Probably a US expression. And now you can get a twangy US accent and say it to your dad! 😆

    1. Ahh, Selma, this is a gorgeous poem and I didn’t know it yet. Thank you so much! You are kind to call me a poet but the fact is that we were in the sun most of the day and I felt just a tinge of sunburn on my face when I was writing my post. 😀 It is more that they came here for some Tuscan sun. In Slovenia it was raining. As for the sun, tonight Luka and his Mavericks play the first game against the team called the (Phoenix) Suns. How to defeat the Suns? We need to wait and see.

  2. A very warm post, Manja. It reminded me of my uncle- the one I was very close to.
    The door on you first ‘Thursday doors’ post is magnificent. I also liked your photograph in your Uncle’s city. A lovely collage of memories.
