When I took this photo a few years ago, I could not know how much it was going appeal to me in our current pandemic situation. I do not know whether and when I will be able to travel to another continent again. But let’s take the message from the picture. We are going up a step staircase now. Just a few more exhausting steps and ahead lies a much brighter future !
Thank you so much, Becky for another wonderful month of Squares. They often made my day and I discovered so many fellow bloggers. I am curious how you are going to challenge us in the next round in July but I am sure it will be some uplifting and fun theme again.

A specialty from Taiwan is Mango Shaved Ice. Typical ingredients are cubed mangoes, condensed milk, sugar, mango juice and ice. The bright orange color is really appealing. Eating it on a sweltering hot day cooled me down quickly. And of course, it was very tasty. Fruity and delicious !
You should eat this refreshing dessert on a really hot day.
This bird and some others I saw in London Hyde Park. As in other European cities many ring-necked parakeets live in Greater London. The number of these feral pet animals is estimated from 30. to 70.000. These parrots liked to be fed !
Becky writes: „It’s a brand new month and I am beginning to feel hopeful we might be taking more steps forward than back and that there is a brighter future ahead. There are still though lots of challenges for many of us, and life isn’t always easy with or without pandemic lock-downs, and so over the next thirty days I propose we support each other by brightening our lives with squares…“
Immediately after reading the theme, I remembered the time we took a taxi in Malta. It had been raining heavily all day, but the female driver said merrily: „It’s brrrightening up.“ And in fact it did, the next day. Look at the colorful boats in bright sunshine!
Later when traveling in persistently rainy weather, we often joked repeating what the taxi driver had told us. But the slogan might also be helpful to lift your mood in the current situation 😊.
Thank you, Becky for this new and fantastic challenge !
