Five on Friday

I ran out of Friday here in Australia (it's a few hours into Saturday) but it is still Friday afternoon in the UK and that is where Amy is so hey, Five on Friday (on Saturday) it is. I'm extra to be joining Amy and the other bloggers who are posting this week as it is a special first anniversary Five on Friday (there's a giveaway too if you are interested in those kinds of things).

My five this week are five new to me websites I've visited during the week.

This my favourite. The blog for the garden at Prieure d'Orsan. I looked them up after catching a short snippet of Monty Don's program about the spectacular garden there. Oh how I want to visit that garden (and restaurant) and moreover make use of some of their ideas in my own garden.

Not my favourite but a good way to get lost and go off on a reading odyssey, Quackwatch.

Ummm. I have tinnitus so I spent a couple of minutes here reading whilst listening to the ever-present buzz in my left ear.

Let's be Vegan. I used one of the recipes as inspiration for Thursday's dinner- a cauliflower stir fry with a sticky orange sauce. Yum! Not a bad place if you are interested in finding some different recipes to try.

And lastly, I visited the blog page of my penpal, Cathy.

Thank you Amy for hosting Five on Friday and for just being such a sweet person.

Bye for now,

I love this idea of posting 5 sites you have visited this week. I'm always up for discovering new blogs. Lovely to visit you here today via 5 on Friday :)

Hi Tracy! Nice to meet you. I'm so sorry about your tinnitus. And our Friday is still morning here in the Pacific Northwest. Hope you can visit that garden and get good inspirations!

Thanks for the links to the other blogs, I'll go and visit them! Have a great weekend - you are already there :) x

The quackwatch one sounds intriguing, I will go and investigate! It is a good job that you didn't say vegan to the person you visited recently, can you imagine their reaction that! Thank you so much for joining in the anniversary of Five On Friday, I really do appreciate it so much! Have a good weekend! xx

This is such a nice take on Five on Friday to share some wonderful websites. I'm going to have some fun reading them. I had to smile about it being Saturday in Australia as when Five on Friday is posted, it's still Thursday evening here in California! Have a wonderful weekend, Pat :)

I have tinnitus too, but have to accept nothing will ever change it (but chocolate makes it worse! :( This is a great idea to share interesting blogs and I'll check out a few of them too. I'd say have a great weekend, but I think you're already at 5:30 a.m. there!

I like the idea of five sites you've visited, I took a quick run to a couple of them.
