Bad Back Stops Play
A close up of The Drinker Moth with my new super Canon camera. Do click on it if you have a moment.
Oh my back! I must have done too much gardening yesterday and today I can't actually stand up straight. If I try, my lower back goes into spasm. I'm hoping a good sleep will sort it out.
I have done a few new ATCs. OK Jason, you can skip this bit (he finds them boring).
The Puffin Series
Chocolate or Fish?
'I can Fly'
'Puff-in Boots'. Sorry, I couldn't resist!
I've gone all zentangly too, these are my early attempts:
I tend to play with these while I'm waiting for photos to upload!
Jim took these excellent photos of butterflies in the garden:
A tortoiseshell on a French Marigold.
A ringlet Butterfly.
This poor meadow butterfly has been in the wars!
This is another moth that was on our wall. I'm afraid we don't know what it is called!
Jim's Veg Patch
Doesn't that look just splendid? We are eating fresh veg almost daily and soft fruit too. It's all delicious.
A lovely cabbage
The peas have been amazing and are still coming. I love fresh peas straight from the pod.
Lough Graney with a super sky above. This view is just by our gate.
The wind machines are on the far horizon. This shot shows how good the zoom is on my new Canon PowerShot SX210. It has a 14 times zoom yet it fits in my pocket. Marvellous.
Can you Solve the Mystery?
A while ago I posted some photos of our aquilegias. One of you out there asked if you could have some seeds from the yellow one, which I duly collected today. Now I can't find the person who asked for them. Was it you? Do get in touch if it was.
Jim's sister Val, who lives in New Zealand, is coming for a few days on Sunday. I'm looking forward to it. Jim has been working hard on the kitchen/diner today and it's looking better, but it's still not finished. I'm sure there will be some photos from Val's visit.
Have a great weekend everyone.
