There are plenty of olive trees in Ta Qali Park and I’ve seen how they’ve grown since last spring.Now they are ripe and ready to pick.This morning my dear husband came home with a whole bag of olives, at least several kilos.
Soon he realized that the best thing is to remove the pits before they are soaked and went to buy a olive pitter. He spent quite a long time with each olive but within a month they will be ready to eat. Lucky me…
“My life is part humor, part roses, part thorns.”

I have a dear friend that I have known ever since I started blogging year 2011. Every Sunday she post different kinds of signs and there are many others that follow. I haven’t participated since I can’t remember when but now I feel it is time to join again. Here we go…Great Sales in Sicily.

It’s not often that I visit Valletta but a few days ago I took the ferry to Malta’s capital. Here, most of the side streets are narrow and some also very steep. The best way to get around is on foot, which I did.The entire city of Valletta has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1980 and selected as the European Capital of Culture year 2018. The city became the capital on 18 March 1571.Valletta has many titles, all recalling its rich historical past. It’s the “modern” city built by the Knights of St John, a masterpiece of the Baroque. It’s also one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world.
More to come….

This is a very small flower that I found in Ta Qali National Park.
Perhaps someone know what kind of flower it is.

Sunday night we spent at the Mediterranean Conference Center in Valletta, to listen to……Ben Portsmouth, “The World’s Number One Elvis Tribute Artist” who for the first time visited Malta. Above, some images from the intro of the show. Below, the artist himself.I usually never shoot under these lighting conditions, thus the quality is not the best.
But most important, it was a great night, taking a walk down memory lane. Good old tunes and also a bit challenging to try to take pictures of the artist and his band on the stage. Click on an images to enlarge.
In August 2012, Ben Portsmouth made history when he won the Elvis Presley Enterprises ‘Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest’ which took place in Memphis, crowning Ben as the ‘Worldwide Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist’, the only artist from outside the USA to ever win this prestigious title.
There was only one Elvis but Ben is the closest you will ever get in terms of Elvis’s looks, his singing voice and on stage charisma. Hope you enjoyed!
She loves to play hide and seek in the hight grass.Exhausted after running very fast. She needs to run a lot to feel happy and satisfied, like all hunting dogs.Although she turns two in July she still acts like a puppy.
She knows that chewing on a slipper is totally forbidden!
Looks like Fanny whispers a secret in the other dog’s ear and then sniffs where there is nothing to find.Do not disturb me when I play with my best friend Kimbo. We are both of the same breed originally bred in Africa. We are very intelligent and tough dogs and are often nicknamed the “barkless dog”. Guess why…? …because we belong to the very few breeds in the whole world that do not bark.
Other basenji may yodel or howl when they are excited but I’m very quiet.
Besides that I’m also playful, cuddly and I needs a lot of love, which I also give back.
They are now seen growing everywhere on the small island of Malta.Cee’s Photo Challenge
