An owl underway. Now complete and handed over for the craft stall at the nursery Christmas fair.
The Kelpies. Taken from the car, we've yet to visit them properly.
These are two lino prints by Barbara Robertson. They are shown in the condition they arrived - ie not great, and I can't believe they were just displayed by the previous owner in clip frames. Anyway, I've taken them in to a local gallery to get them framed properly - which will cost more than the prints did themselves, eek! However, I think they're worth it. I love them! They were a lucky on-line find. I have a greeting card print of the top picture which I've had in a frame and on display for about twenty years so I was quite excited to find the original. The second picture features an umbellifer so of course I like it!
Huge cocktail from yesterday afternoon, consumed during a small get-together of last years PGDE students.
The Duke of Wellington, still sporting his hat.
Sunrise this morning.
Now we're going back a couple of weeks to a Sunday afternoon walk round a nearby beauty spot. We went further than we'd intended and hadn't realised how large the site was - I did start to get a little concerned we wouldn't get back to the car while daylight lasted, but we did, phew.
Now for some sunset shots from the garden:-
And lastly... I remembered sorting out some butterfly photos in August but never getting round to posting them at the time. Here they are now - a little pop of late summer colour to brighten your day:-
