How about . . .

. . . taking a walk with us along a section of the Kennet and Avon Canal. We'll start at Bradford-on-Avon and walk as far as the aqueduct at Avoncliff, at which point we'll rest a while with an ice cream, and then walk back again. Enjoy.

2015 Summer Photography Scavenger Hunt

The Final round-up

I managed to post most of my offerings for the Scavenger Hunt after my holiday in late June, but there were just a few that I still needed to find, so here they are:

No. 7 A turtle, well several actually


I wasn't able to find No. 4 people playing a board or card game, or No. 18 an overloaded truck, car, bicycle or other vehicle, so instead here is:

Alternative B. Someone holding an umbrella


and Alternative C. A rocking chair (shamelessly copied from Facebook!)


and lastly No. 21 A photograph of me with a sign reading 2015 Summertime Scavenger Hunt.



The hunt closes on 21st September, so I've only just scraped in with these. You can view all the other entries here

My tree this month

Not a great deal of change, the little plum tree is settling in quite happily after its relocation to the front garden.

Week thirty seven

Day 253


Almost there, just need to rework those clouds, again.


Day 254


Went for a walk, up Arn Hill and round the golf course, now heading back towards town.


Day 255



Another beautiful sunrise (disappointingly lightened up by blogger, yet again!)


Day 256


GD2 and GD4 called in again with their mum and dad, so I took them to the park to feed the ducks (not sure that GD4 is very impressed!)


Day 257


My new work area, well worth the wait, though it's not fully laden yet - this is far too tidy for me!


Day 258


The one and only flower on my little hydrangea this year - hoping for great things next year,


Day 259


It's starting to look almost autumnal in the park already
