Building Blocks of History – 19th July

Things happen every day, big and small. Together they make our family history, our local history, our country’s history and sometimes they become part of global history.

All of these things happened on 19th July in years gone by.

In 1545 Henry VIII’s Mary Rose sank in the Solent.

1n 1553 Lady Jane Grey was deposed as Queen.

In 1799 the Rosetta Stone was discovered.

In 2013 I was a very proud mum at my daughter’s graduation.


Good education

Unravelling history

Key to the future.

Welcome to Haiga Heaven Weekly Challenge!

Regular visitors know, I love Haigas.

Traditionally, Japanese Haigas are a complimentary combination of a haiku and simple painting. Modern Haiga writers embrace a range of visual media including photography and graphics.

Join me, having fun, creating new Haigas, using your favourite medium.

If you want to join in,  you’ll find a new prompt to inspire your  Haiga  every Sunday.  Add a link in the comments box to share your Haiga.

I look forward to seeing your take on this week prompt – Fairest.

The bravest knights and
fairest ladies in the land
playing courtly games.

Navigation perilous
conspiracies and crusades.
