I was very enthusiastic, when I saw this meme the first time at my friend Thom's Place 4 Well Whatever.... These are the words of Jientje, the host at Heaven is in Belgium:
As long as people have been around, they have tried to communicate with each other. As a means of getting the message across as clearly as possible, idioms and sayings have found their way into our language. Now, because "a picture paints a thousand words", I thought it would be nice to make this a new photo challenge. The idea is to choose an idiom, or a saying, (even slang is allowed) and illustrate it with a picture. Each week we'll cover two letters of the alphabet, okay? The very first edition is here if you need some inspiration.
The meme turned out quite challenging, since I wasn't familiar with English Idioms. I tried to look around the Web and got to the A-Z list of free English idioms. If you know another site, please let me know. Thank you :).
E is for "The apple of your eye"
If somebody is the apple of your eye, this means that you like them very much : "My grandson is the apple of my eye". (Well, in this case they are my children)
