a wee stroll in the sun

Off out wi’ the camera since it was nice ‘n’ sunny this forenoon. I had intended heading for a beautiful garden (didn’t snap as it was being worked on at the time) but got distracted by these on the way. They are connected to my previous post As I Walked Out… since it is more or less the same area just shifted forward four months. Spot the differences?

  1. wonderful wildflower end of the Millenium Field… super
  2. closeup of a cornflower, my first
  3. medium sized gowan – big daisy
  4. the brightest yellow – black eyed susan/rudbekia
  5. fluffy thistle heads
  6. fat glossy rosehips
  7. broom pods ready to pop
  8. popped! (sound backdrop of pops, crackles, buzzing bees and thrumming crickets)
  9. bramble view – taste good too!

Books

A Good Haul

booksMy local library has just has another sale of withdrawn books, Hooray! and this time I knew about it in advance. The booty today was 9 books for a total price of… £1.60!

two to give to friends, probably: H.P. Lovecraft “The Dreams in the Witch House” and John Updike “Villages”

two Scottish writers: Christopher Brookmyre “A Big Boy Did It And Ran Away” and Quintin Jardine “Dead and Buried” (reading the Bob Skinner novels in sequence but encountered a bit of a gap)

two American writers: James Lee Burke “To the Bright and Shining Sun” and Patricia Highsmith “The Blunderer”
a funny one?: Matthew Baylis “The Last Ealing Comedy”

improvement?: Classic fm “One Hundred Favourite Poems”

artistic: Maria Constantino “Klimt”

So that’s me sorted for the next few months. More shelves  probably required tho’ as the  backlog is growing . Good thing I was given a wee portable reading light as a present so I can work through them even in the gloaming of 3:00 and 5:00 ish on dull afternoons.

Personal, Photys

holiday photys

OK, I know I’ve been quiet for a few weeks. Nothing much happening I suppose but I was away for a few days. You may be able to work out where from the pics below? The bumble bee is probably shown a wee bit smaller than life size, he was impressive.
But now it’s back to the usual daily slippers and dressing gown, getting up at 3 in the afternoon, eating crisps and watching Murder She Wrote everyday… 😉

MOO minicards, Personal, Photys

photos = MOO minicards

Finally decided to make Moo minicards using my own photys. The package arrived today and I just had to  lay them all out. Showing 49 cards and missing out the one unsuccessful design I managed to take this, squint, I know. And I could’na resist stickers too. Now I know which are better long or square for the next time.MyMooCards
