On the Hook, 22/8/20

This week I’ve mainly been working on secret things, but I did finish off my cushion. I’m very happy with it 🙂 It looks good from either side and goes well with my blanket and the other cushion I made. In the last picture you can see me comparing the tulips on the cushion withContinue reading “On the Hook, 22/8/20”

Good Morning Damsels

If I’m lucky, in a couple of weeks, I may have the joy of watching Damselflies emerge from my pond in the morning before starting work (from home), or while I’m having a morning tea break. The end of April / beginning of May seems to be the time for it, looking back through myContinue reading “Good Morning Damsels”

Easter Photo Marathon

Over the long Easter weekend, I took part in a local photo marathon: Ffoto Marathon Pasg (that’s Easter Photo Marathon in Welsh). As we’re all on lock-down, the idea was to take photos on various topics while staying at home. On each of the days of the 4-day weekend, a new topic was given outContinue reading “Easter Photo Marathon”

Carpet of Flowers

When I went for a walk yesterday, the Celandines were really putting on a good show. The woodland path was surrounded by them. So bright and cheerful 🙂 And of course, I couldn’t just leave it there, I have to get closer 🙂 I didn’t notice at the time, but the central flower in theContinue reading “Carpet of Flowers”

Last Snake of 2020

Yesterday I celebrated the first butterfly photo of 2020. Today I’m celebrating the last of my snakes … Snake’s Head Fritillaries of course, not actual snakes. I had six flowers this year and here’s how the sixth flower has been getting on. This is flower number 6 as it was on March 22nd: By AprilContinue reading “Last Snake of 2020”

Keeping it Simple

For a lot of people at the moment, life is strange, complex and worrying. We don’t know what will happen, we don’t know how long we’ll be in lock-down, we don’t know whether the world will ever be the same again. Some people have time on their hands, looking for things to occupy themselves. Some,Continue reading “Keeping it Simple”

On the Hook, 4/4/20

Another peculiar week of working from home and online meetings. Not as stressful as last week, thankfully, but still very odd at times. I will have to venture out later to pick up prescriptions. It’s so weird that something that I used to consider perfectly normally now seems scary and strange. So anyway, back toContinue reading “On the Hook, 4/4/20”
