Day 168 – A Little Apiarist…

This is Daisy, aged 10, kitted out for her first lesson in beekeeping from our friend Andrew. I think she found it a little intimidating…

Day 167 – Lazy Sunday Afternoon…

Driving through Eccleshall this afternoon I noticed that with a little welcome sunshine, there were lots of folks around. This group were enjoying a drink at one of the many pubs and bars in town…

Day 166 – Duck or Grouse…

I love great food, and tonight’s dinner at The Hinds Head was no exception. A small family run pub/restaurant where everything is cooked to order – no pre-prepared catering here! And a bonus – there’s been a Gin Festival on in the village, and the pub has a better than usual range available, with special prices for doubles. What’s not to like!

Day 165 – Open Gate…

Sometimes when I see an open gate I wonder where it leads to, and what it is intended to keep in (or out). This gate however is directly in front of our house, and leads into the farmer’s fields. It’s normally left closed to discourage casual walkers, but has been left open by a neighbour taking their dog for a walk…

Day 164 – On The Move…

A ‘wrinklies’ day out – off to the Good Food Show in Birmingham, so a good excuse to go by train. Makes a change from using the car, even if it does take longer, and we had to stand part of the way back as the train was over-full… Still, a great day out overall, and here is the obligatory railway photo.

Day 162 – Another Rainy Day…

So I didn’t really want to go out, but had some chores to do, and we needed food! I pass this barn quite often, and have photographed it in different weather conditions, but never as wet as this… It was always going to have to be a mono shot.
