My son-in-law was helping with a house clearance this week and he rescued this vase for me, isn’t that lovely of him!!! And my daughter said – “a Vase for Monday!”
I immediately thought the vase had a Kahloesque look about it. You might already know I am a big fan of Frida!
An opportunity to get those candles out again.
Does anyone know what the mauve flowers are – they seed themselves freely around the garden?
I am thoroughy enjoying the heady scented mix of honeysuckle and philadelphus.
And philadelphus is my entry for Cee’s Flower of the Day.
There is a Frida Kahlo exhibition on at the V and A at the moment – I hope to go and see it, but it is hard to think of getting on a train and travelling to London whilst we are enjoying such glorious sunny weather.
Do you have anything to pop in a vase this Monday – if so do join in with Cathy over at Rambling in the Garden – such a fun gathering of gardeners.
I must just share another beauty of a sunset we had last night
I’ve had a lovely time this month noticing how the sunlight catches and enhances things.
The prompt for this month’s photographic meet-up is SUNLIGHT.
We meet up on the first Tuesday of each month. You are very welcome to join in anytime. For future prompts go to the Photo Challenge Page.
Next month’s prompt is Sculpture.
To join us, leave links to your Sunshine photos, either current or archive, in the comments – “Bring me Sunshine!”
Adding ‘Walking on Sunshine’ after seeing it mentioned in Crafty Creeks’s post
Don’ it feel good!!!!! ❤
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.
My friend and I walked from Bere Regis car park, through woods,
up to and along Black Hill
past sun-shiny gorse bushes with dense spiders’ nests
down into deep dark sunken lanes
and leafy paths thick with leaf mould underfoot and dappled light ahead
through the village of Shitterton.
(Joining in with Cee’s Which Way Challenge)
The footpath goes between those two cottages.
and into the Drax Arms for my birthday treat, a scrummy Sunday Roast – Thank you lovely walking friend! ❤ (my birthday is on Friday, 11th)
Rounding off the excursion with the obligatory visit to the church, which is huge and full of amazing wooden carvings and this rather sweet sign by a gravestone
A boy named Joy! How delightful.
….. time to light the fire.
Wishing you all a snug evening. ❤
