Last Sunday I met a couple of friends for a bluebell extravaganza of a walk!
The path took us through deep dark woods
Joining Cee’s Which Way Challenge
and lighter glades where the light was stunningly, beautifully, softly, frothily romantic
I took so many photographs, it has taken me all week to choose which ones to share( they certainly won’t all fit in one post).
We stopped at Down House Farm
and sat out in the garden
for a delicious lunch of Bubble and Squeak, eggs and bacon, all local produce and drank apple and ginger fruit punch
after that we headed out to the cliffs and wide open views towards Portland
Oh what a joyful day, the sun shone, the air was sweet, the sky was blue, our batteries were well and truly recharged …..

caught my eye
in the fading light
Our ‘One-a-Week’ Photo Challenge Prompt this week is FENCE
Ronovan’s Haiku Prompts are EYE and FADE
The mitten on the post must have been there a while as it was green with algae. Since starting to do beach cleans, I see all litter and dropped items in a new light. They are all potential art materials with a human back story. It did feel slightly weird taking it from it’s post, but I am pretty certain it’s owner is not likely to return for it. It will go with other found clothing I have and see what art work it might inspire.
The top of the fence post is a little world of its own
The photos were taken on a walk from Nine Wells towards Solva (Pembrokeshire) along the coastal path.
I was walking from the treehouse as the sun was going down.
There was no wind and I stood to watch the sunset before returning
to the cosiness of my nest in the trees.
What fences have you found this week? Leave a link in the comments below, we’d love to see them.
