Back in the darker January days when frost dusted everything with magic, Miss E and I went walking with our cameras. Version 2Miss E was given a camera for Christmas and she was keen to get some frosty shots. We went to Thorncombe Woods and headed for the pond.



chagrin felt at school

healed with home education,

love, joy and freedom


Joining in with Ronovan’s weekly Haiku Challenge, prompt words:



Do you recognise the bobble hat? – I made one for each grandchild last year, but trying to get a decent photo of all of them was like herding cats


Cute though!

I’ll be away from the computer for a couple of weeks. Cathy will be holding the Photo fort over at Nanacathy, leave a link on her One-a-Week Photo Challenge posts and I will include them in the April Round-Up. Thank you Cathy and as Cathy says:

“Happy Snapping”

Week 3 of the 52 week photo challenge hosted by BlueDaisyz                                I’m enjoying this! – I know it is still only week 3, but so far …… a joy!                 And now I’m noticing a few other regular themes on other blogs: Five on Friday, Fashion Friday, Paint Party Friday hmmm something about Fridays …… …. ..  Ah! here’s a Tuesday challenge: Stick it Down Tuesday

The picture above, my ‘Light’ picture, was taken on a walk in the woods with my daughter and her 3 littlies. We were all looking down at tree stumps,  ferns and the signs of squirrel activity and we noticed Little Miss M, aged 2, sitting astride a log, looking up transfixed, smiling at the sunlight on the branches and the patterns against the sky. Choosing this picture for the 52 week challenge, has made me think …..

What about: Walk on Wednesday, Wednesday Walks, Wandering Wednesday, A Wednesday Walk, We walk on Wednesday – what to name it?

I’ve gone for Wednesday Walks, but please let me know if you think of another better, more inviting title. I will post walks from the past and present – no rules. And it might give me that extra little push I need some days to get out there for a walk, after cosy hours with the crochet hook.

It would be great if you would like to join me in posting pictures of your favourite walks and we can link up in blogland.                                                                           I’d love to hear what you think of the idea. . . . .
