When we were at the Malvern Spring Garden Festival in May we ordered a new greenhouse. It had to come from Norfolk and when we got the letter advising us of delivery, they also informed us that it would be delivered in a lorry, 36 feet long, 11 feet wide 14 + feet high and not articulated, was ther...

365 Day 195 - Waiting for Mum

I had to pop into town this morning and on my way back to the car park I spotted this little dog tied to a post. Mum was just inside a shop door keeping and eye on him so he was absolutely fine. I couldn't resist taking his photo though.

Iain and Isla watching cricket on TV. It was a T20 match so not as boring as some but Isla obviously didn't think so. I keep telling both of them that Isla is a dog but they don't seem to listen!

Today was granddaughter, Sophie's first school concert. For weeks now, Mum and Dad have been listening to choir and recorded practice. She did really well and looks as though she knows it!

365 Day 192 - Day Lily

Anybody following this blog will be sick of flowers but I'm not going to apologise, at the end of the day it is my blog and I like my flowers! These day lilies last such a short time, just a day, hence their name and as I said in an earlier post, even when we have had some quite breezy days, some o...

On May 4th 1471, the battle of Tewkesbury took place between the Lancastrians and Yorkists. This was apparently one of the most decisive battles of the wars of the roses with the Yorks under King Edward IV not only beating the Lancastrian but killing both the Lancastrian heir to the throne and many...

365 Day 190 - More flowers

The last few evenings have been quite still which is lovely after having a bit of breeze in the day and I have taken advantage by going out in the garden with my camera. Today it was the clematis. I can't remember what this one is called, it is not a huge flower but a really intense magenta colour ...

365 Day 188 - Another beastie

I have a huge pot of lilies on the patio which are at their best just now and the plan today was to photograph them with my macro lens, which I did and this is the result. Then just as I was thinking of packing everything away I spotted this creature on the ground. It is quite big, thou...

365 Day 187 - Beasties

When I took Isla for her walk today there seemed to be lots more butterflies than I had seen for a while, mostly small tortoishelles feeding on thistles. It was quite windy though and even with quite a fast shutter speed it wasn't easy to get them sharp as the thistles were swaying in the wind. T...

365 Day 186 - Red sky at night

Tuesday is my day for golf, at least one of them. The ladies play 9 holes in the afternoon then club night starts at 6 o'clock and I play another 9 holes then and although I could probably take my little camera with me I somehow don't like to and I always end up struggling for a photograph on Tuesd...

I'm determined to see this project through but am really struggling to keep it going at the moment. I'm taking the photographs, though as I have said before, some days inspiration seems to be lacking too but just lately it has been several days and sometimes a week before I manage to upload them, s...

365 Day 184 - Incy wincy spider

We had a horrendous thunder storm this afternoon with hail, lightning and then suddenly it cleared up again. I like to take a walk around the garden after the rain to try to catch some raindrops on the flowers. That didn't work too well today, either the drops had gone or the background was too me...

I'm working on part 2 of my OCA People and Place course at the moment and the exercises I am doing involve photographing people without them being aware of it. My current exercises involve using a wide angle lens and a standard local length lens so that I get the people and the environment to a les...

365 Day 182 - Potatoes!!!

Today was 'Founders' Day' at the school at which I am a governor. It is a Church of England aided school attached to St John the Baptist, Huntley and although strictly speaking, St John the Baptist day is 24th June, we usually hold our 'Founders Day' events on a Friday, two weeks before the end of ...

This time last year we went for a walk in the Forest of Dean, had lunch on the way home and vowed to set a week aside every month in which we would choose a day and repeat the experience. Ever since, in my diary the first week of every month has been 'walk week' although until this week we have not...
