Great stuff for Wet Monday (probably refers to having drinks). smile
Ginnie Hart: Interestingly, Larry, it rained throughout the night, so we have awakened to a Wet Monday here in the Netherlands!

A perplexing Stii Life, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Looking down on a tombstone from above, Ray, while walking along a colonnade. Sometimes death viewed in life is perplexing?!

Hope you had a safe Easter weekend and it was filled with great memories smile
Ginnie Hart: It was indeed safe, Emily, and quiet. We did spend time with our community friends on Friday night or a nice Easter meal, as well as some nearby friends afterwards, Other than that, it was quiet...and peaceful. Thanks.
I like the photo, nice treatment, don't think that means peace in the U.K. though, Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: Astrid just did a Google on it and discovered exactly what you have said, Frank. So strange how this gesture over time has changed meaning in some places.
A wonderful image, Ginnie - just beautiful!
Ginnie Hart: Very kind of you, Elizabeth. I almost didn't post it because I didn't know if the image made sense for what it was.
Good eagle claw. But my kung fu is better.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I'd expect nothing less from you, Michael.

Ginnie Hart: I didn't either, Lisl! smile

I love this angle of the angel. Wonderful treatment. I think Wet Monday fits today....
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Astrid. And after your Google of it, I'm finding out what that gesture means elsewhere. We always learn something new! After nice gentle rain last night, Wet Monday definitely fits.

Well it's bright-ish here this morning Ginnie,it's slightly wet outside too, and I feel somewhat renewed
Ginnie Hart: We had gentle rain during the night, Chris, so all does feel renewed this morning, yes.

So many names for this day! A fascinating detail! The sun is out at the moment. I wish you another quiet, comfy day!
Ginnie Hart: So many names, indeed, Philine. I had no idea! The sun is out here, too, after a night of gentle rain. But it's quite cold for this time, at 6C.

I've never heard of Wet Monday before; I wonder if that isa corruption of Whit Monday (But that's later - June this year) I think that the symbol is the opposite of the peace symbol certainly in the UK; the peace symbol is dome with the palm facing outwards, a symbol famously used by Sir Winston Churchill.
Ginnie Hart: I'm learning so much from today's post, Alan. Leave it to SC!
It is wet Monday here at the moment Ginnie grin
Ginnie Hart: It rained during the night, Bill, so we awakened to a Wet Monday. But now the sun is shining...even though it's still cold, at 6C.
I wondered where Churchill picked up the victory salute from Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Dear me, Chad. I'm learning a lot today!
A very nice treatment, good photo, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Roland.
excellent traitement!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, JP.

In SA it is Family Day ... Seeing that they are still placing flowers, the family must have been quite indebted to this person.
Ginnie Hart: We'll have to ask Wiki to please add that category, Louis!
Ha ha... No way! Are you sure?!
This is a very naughty angel indeed.

Of course, the Natural History Museum is free. smile

Don't you have wild garlic in the NE, G? Ha ha... But you'll be visiting England soon, right? Come on why don't you move to England now before they close the Brexit deal. wink
Ginnie Hart: I'm learning by the minute how naughty this angel is, LC. HA! And believe me, I'm still grieving about the Brexit deal, knowing my/our options will soon be limited. (sigh)
Most unusual from this angle.
Ginnie Hart: That's what I'm learning, Brian!
Wet Monday works for me as it is slightly raining. I wish it would pour. it seems as though that hand should be holding something.
Ginnie Hart: We had rain last night, Mary, but today has been mostly sunny, though cold. And yes, that hand should be holding something, now that I know what this gesture means for the UKers amongst us.
Interesting! Gotta love Wiki!
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Robin. Where would we be without it?!
i love your point of view showing the flowers at the angels feet Ginnie....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter, It was a good vantage point, indeed.
Easter Monday is a holiday here in Canada as well. We had a very wet Monday.
Ginnie Hart: It was wet here, too, Michael, after a night rain, but the sun did come out in full force.

are you referring to the hand gesture of the angel, peace, victory? altho she could be calling for 2 more drinks to the table smile beautiful shot, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Yes, the hand gesture, Elaine. I've discovered it can have quite a derogatory message in some cultures (like in England).
i like your unusual point of view on this tombstone, Ginnie. i believe the v sign facing inwards and outwards have different meanings - i cannot recall which one was the rude one!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush. Based on what I have learned from the comments thus far, THIS gesture is considered the rude one! smile
