Les cinq sens


Hier, en papillonnant de blog en blog, je suis tombée par hasard sur un défi lancé par kjsutcliffe artist(ici) et qui consiste en la publication de photos suivant un thème donné par une liste de 5 mots plus une photo au choix. 
Ce challenge se nomme Scavenger Hunt (La chasse au trésor) et j’ai été attirée par la liste du mois de février faisant référence aux cinq sens.   
J’ai donc parcouru mes dossiers photo et voici ce que je vous propose: 

Yesterday, I discovered a challenge by chance as I was browsing through different blogs. 
It was launched by  kjsutcliffe artist(here) and consists in posting a number of pictures following 5 words plus one of your own choice. It is called Scavenger Hunt and I most particularly liked the list of words referring to the 5 senses. 
So I searched my photo files and here is what I suggest:


Le goût / Taste 
Un goût virtuel puisque ces jolies pâtisseries resteront brodées et accrochées sur le mur de ma cuisine et ne descendront pas jusqu’à nos estomacs !  
Virtual taste since these mouth-watering cakes will remain embroidered and hung on my kitchen wall and will never go down into any stomach !



La vue / Sight
Vue sur un champ de jacinthes photographié lors d’un voyage aux Pays-Bas.  
A picture of hyacinth fields that I took on a trip to the Netherlands.




 L’ouïe / Sound 
Le son des vagues rugissantes contre les brise-lames de Saint-Malo.  

The roaring sound of the waves against the break-waters of Saint-Malo.





L’odorat / Smell
La truffe infaillible de mon épagneul Breton Pudding.  
The infallible nose of my Brittany spaniel Pudding.



Le toucher / Touch 
La légèreté d’un papillon sur mes doigts. 
The light touch of a butterfly on my fingers. 



Mon choix / My own choice 
Mon jardin, un endroit qui stimule tous les sens à la fois par le goût de ses fruits, le parfum de ses fleurs, la vue de ses couleurs, le son des insectes et des oiseaux, le toucher des plantes ou de la terre et la caresse de l’air.  
My garden, a place that awakens all the senses by the taste of its fruit, the scent of its flowers, the sight of its colours, the sound of insects and birds, the touch of plants, earth and the caress of the breeze. 

 
 Thank you for your visit and have a nice weekend!

  1. What a wonderful series of images. I especially like the one from St. Malo. Your garden looks like a haven of serenity where you can comtemplate nature, and enjoy it all around you, and recharge your batteries.

    1. Thank you, David. Saint Malo and Brittany are very beautiful places and I am sure you would observe very interesting birds over there. As for my new garden, the former owner had neglected it but it has an interesting potential.

  2. Lovely photos. The embroidered cakes and pastries are wonderful! No putting weight on looking at them. I agree with David, the St Malo photo is my favourite; I can hear and smell the crashing waves.

    1. Thank you very much. Saint Malo is a place I really love and when the sea is rough as it is on the picture, it becomes magnificent!

  9. Bonjour, Ta couture est belle et l'image de "Pudding" c'est tres magnifique et me fait pleurer. Mon petit amour, Daisy, est mort cette semaine.
    pardon, mon français est extrêmement "rouillé "

    1. Thank you, Jayne! Don't worry for your French, it is very good. I had unfortunately guessed when I visited your blog that you had lost your poor Daisy very recently. Pudding also departed this world last autumn, followed by Biscotte, her fellow cat, 4 months later, and it hurt terribly. I share your grief and send you all my sympathies, Jayne.

    2. Merci mon aimie. I am so sorry that you lost two babies so close together. That must hurt very much.

  10. What a beautiful post. All the pictures are amazing. I love that non fattening embroidery, the field of hyacinths and I too thought of using Roxy's or our cat's nose pictures, but my favourite is of the waves crashing at St Malo. It is a powerful photograph showing the crashing waves and sculptural tree trunks.

    1. Thank you very much. All the conditions were gathered on that day in Saint Malo for a beautiful picture.

  11. What a wonderful set of photos, it's hard to pick a favourite as they are all so good :) Your garden looks and sounds to be a lovely peaceful place - I love the butterfly, and the shot of the hyacinth fields would look great as modern art. It reminds me of one of those pictures that were all the rage years ago where if you 'looked through' the picture you could see another image within it. They never worked for me though!

    1. Thank you very much for your visit on my blog! It is true that the flower field stripes almost make an abstract picture and it is hard to imagine the topic of the photo at first glance. Wishing you a nice Sunday!

    1. Thank you, Julie, for your kind comment and for visiting my blog. The butterfly had been accidentally trapped in my veranda and I just had the time to make a few pictures before letting it fly away.

  17. What a beautiful set of pictures. I particularly like the one of the nose of your Spaniel "Pudding" how still it must have been.
    Saint-Malo looks very lovely but that was a fierce swell in the harbour.
    And the Dutch Hyacinth Fields in the colours of the Dutch Flag but upside down! I know it would have been the French flag from another side.
    It's a joy to see your photos on the Scavenger Hunt or the rather more beautiful Chasse au Trésors (Hunt for Treasures?) You certainly have some Treasures.

    1. Thank you for your kind comment, John. Yes, "scavenger hunt" is "chasse au trésor" or "rallye" in French. I don't know if I still have treasures to post but I am looking forward to discovering March's list of words and we will see... Have a nice week. Sandrine

  18. What a fabulous series of photos, Sandrine! Your embroidery never ceases to amaze me. The first image is clearly my favourite. The little boulangerie is simply perfect.
    The photo of the hyacinths is wonderful too. Thank you for sharing this beauty!
    Bisous!

    1. Thank you, April! The cross stitch is nice in the kitchen, I love embroidering all sorts of cakes for their colours. As for Pudding's nose, she was sleeping when I took the picture, I loved this little nose that detected all the smells around. Wishing you a nice day! Sandrine

    1. Yes, Sheryl, you could join the scavenger hunt. I find it amusing to see how people give a different interpretation to the 5 words.
