Mystified why I should be talking about my workspace? Pop along to Julia – our hostess – at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/ and see how it all works.
Hello my friends. My workdesk this week has been the driving wheel of the car. John has felt well enough to be out and about – so… out and about we have been. Sunday, he managed to get to church for only the fourth time this year, and then we headed off to Anglesey in the most wonderful, warm, sunshine. A meal out was a real treat for me, the views of the mountains were tremendous, and the drive home awesome as we hit the mist roaring down from the tops.
So, having had such a great time out, we decided to repeat it on Monday. The weather forecast was great, John was able to get up fairly early, so we set off to go to Martin Mere. For those from other lands, Martin Mere is a wetland conservation site, where otters, beavers, birds of all varieties from sparrows to swans live, nest, and overwinter. Some of the migrating birds were there as they travelled south for the winter. But, oh, what a contrast from the day before. The fog and mist never really lifted, and the air smelled of Autumn. But the colours were still there. We had a good day out despite the change in the weather.
So, some proof of our time… a lot of fun with the camera. I love to take photos – especially (in good weather!) to have the macro lens on and be grovelling around trying to get inside a flower. Monday, though, was more of a “stand at a distance and use the zoom” type of a day!
A huge fungus growth on this tree stump. It was about 35cm across – incredible.
This tree was covered with these gorgeous shaped cones – a real sign of Autumn.
By one of the ponds were these lovely rushes.
These berries were about the brightest thing we saw all day.
And finally – an attempt at a little arty type of photo!!
So that has been my workspace this week – a few more boxes made, a lot of knitting – I’m making John an Arran cardigan – lots of homemade soups are now in the freezer to have a go at when we fancy soup for lunch, and great fun with the camera.
Take care, my friends. I’ll do my best to visit folks.God bless you.
