Another of my photos to remind us that it won’t rain/snow/blow a gale (add appropriate weather condition) forever. I think the camera might have blown out of my hands if I’d tried taking a photo today.
Taken in summer last year at my in-laws. Pa-in-law had built a swing for Ma-in-law that hangs from one of the big trees in their garden, and because of the length of the ropes, the ride you get on it is slow and gentle. Even if two cheeky girls are aboard.
I’ve had this boot (and a matching one, of course) for over twenty years. I bought them when I was at university, when I went on one of my first holidays with friends, rather than family. We hiked in the Lake District, a beautiful national park in Cumbria.
It’s been a while since I’ve spent a holiday walking, but my boots do me great service at the allotment.
This is the most fun I’ve had with chocolate – without eating it! I did eat some after taking these photos and then sort of regretted spoiling it as a photographic subject.
Taken when we were at the allotment yesterday. There’s not much growing on our plot at the moment, but we’ve left this swiss chard/leaf beet in.
My reflection can be spotted somewhere in the shininess of Jenny’s helmet.
She wanted to scoot up and down the road, and I thought I’d use the opportunity to whip out my camera.
I took a couple of these too.
Rather delightedly, I discovered my reflection in one of the berries too (third from the left in the main/front bunch).
Sometimes, my friend K doesn’t hear the doorbell. I usually have to call her on her mobile to get her to answer the door.
I may have to start paying royalties on my neighbour’s hydrangea. The weather was sunny today, so I was able to capture the lovely colours. I love the new growth coming through. Mind you, our weather is so unpredictable these days, it might well be covered with a layer of snow next week. In which case, I’ll definitely be out with the camera.
A review earlier this month of what I’ve been eating – why? because I just need to do something differently – revealed that I need to improve my intake of fruit.
Fortunately, I know the girls will help eat it.
