Photo a Day in May, back in the swing

Life has been a little topsy turvy of late as we navigate through the motions of moving 
home to Australia and getting out to make the most of our time left in Europe.
I gave up my photo a day for a while there as I got quotes, organised schools
and acted as our family travel agent amongst other things.

I got back in the swing with a photo a day group in May, here is my month.
The daily prompt is in red, the photo and description is my take on the prompt.
