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 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 160 – It’s A Jungle..!

A break from the almost constant rain over the last week gave me an opportunity today to check out the greenhouse. And how it’s grown! So much so that the sunflowers, which I should have planted out a couple of weeks ago, have now reached the roof. I really do need to get out there and sort things out…

Day 134 – Art & Sculpture…

One of our objectives for our trip to Cornwall was to visit St Ives – home of both Tate Modern St Ives, and the Barbara Hepworth sculpture garden. The garden was inspirational, and the gallery challenging, but this piece on display in the gallery really resonated with me…

Day 122 – Swing Low, Sweet Chariot…

Although ostensibly we installed these swings in the garden for our two granddaughters, I suspect they also fulfilled a long term ambition of my wife to have something she never had as a child… Anyway, they all get pleasure from them, so that’s the main thing I reckon.
