On the first Tuesday of each month we meet here to share photos of windows we have spotted. There have been some fascinating entries, I’m really enjoying seeing them. Recent or archive posts are all welcome, just leave a link in the comments.
On a recent walk to the tiny wooden St Catherine’s Chapel, Holworth:
The graveyard looks out to sea
as we sat on the grass we were serenaded by what I think was a Goldfinch in the weather-beaten trees. We couldn’t see the bird well enough to identify it, but I have a wonderful free App called ‘Chirp’ that has taught me to identify birdsong and I checked it with that – what do you think? Song of a Goldfinch?
On the path down to the beach we noticed that this little cottage had been spruced up with new windows and a new thatched roof, shame they haven’t removed the horrid pebbledash on the walls.
I’m looking forward to seeing a window on your piece of the world. 🙂
Glimpses from my walk yesterday evening.
Turn the sound right up to hear the birds and the bees.
The birds sound so happy this evening.
I just love seeing how this border is developing.
You can read more about what it used to be like here.
Oooh – edit – I’ve just looked back at how the border was on 8th May – so good to see how everything has grown.
We had a magical family day out yesterday at Abbotsbury Swannery.
Feeding time for swans is at 12 noon and 4pm
Children are able to go and feed them too.
There were masses of breeding pairs to see
and cygnets – awwww!
There are Go Karts, a Maze, a Quiz, a Playground and a very good restaurant, which all makes for a very good day out.
And – Little Miss M and I added 3.2 miles to our total – 75.2miles completed – target 500 miles
………Continuing to share our lovely bright Winter’s walk around the Bishop’s Palace, Wells, Somerset, England.
There is a smaller wings sculpture in the South Garden.
here, viewed from the ramparts
from where one also gets this glorious view across the Somerset countryside
Peeping through the ramparts
you can see the moat below
There are some videos of the gardens and last year’s cignets here.
Like us, the swans were basking in the sun
(Noelle and Alison in the Whispering Gallery)
And so was a cheeky little robin
sitting on his favourite posing post
All of us glorying in that clear blue sky and the warmth the sun gave us
Noelle suggested this photo of me trying out the wings, it was such a fabulous day our spirits were certainly soaring
and I must show you Noelle’s marvellous hand-knitted hat and scarf/shawl, which looks like wings to me
more to come …..
