My Sunday Photo – frosty but where is the snow?

We have had a lot of cold weather recently, as the temperature has dropped and it’s been very frosty as you can see from our very “furry” car this week. I am sure the neighbours thought we were nuts, being out so early (I prefer our supermarket run very early to avoid people where I […]

My Sunday Photo – Richmond Hill, Turner’s View

I am not an artist but I can appreciate art and Turner’s view, or the paintings he painted from the viewpoint of Richmond Hill in London are some of my favorites. It’s famous both in its painting form and he painted many studies of the view. I have been to see this one at the […]

My Sunday Photo – post-Christmas & New Year Blues

We have hit January and normally I would say we have a case of the New Year Blues. January is not my favorite month and I struggle hard with winter and find November to February hard physically and mentally. We are still allowed to visit Kew Gardens which is helpful as it’s a safe space […]

My Sunday Photo – Oh deer in Richmond Park.

Oh deer. Taken in Richmond Park. We needed headspace. We took an early morning walk in Richmond Park. Even in times like this, with all the challenges and strange things we face, I am grateful for spaces like this so close to us. One day we won’t live in the UK, which each day I […]

My Sunday Photo – Gecko will pose with his food

Spotty the gecko is the perfect model. There is an old saying “never work with children or animals” but he is the most cooperative creature. He’s very sociable and loves to be interacted with and will happily pose for the camera. He’s not like the children or the cats, or in fact, my husband, all […]

My Sunday Photo – finer details, look for them.

Sometimes it’s the finer details in life that you have to look for to appreciate them properly. Look harder, look closer, you might be surprised. You see a little boy’s hand, dirty, nails bitten and a scruffy flower seed, blown and battered. We call these fairies, by the way. I see a hand that has […]

My Sunday Photo – wasp up close & personal

Getting up close and personal with a wasp for the sake of a good photo. When I was about 11, at school, I was stung by a wasp. It hurt, a lot. It crawled up my leg by my skirt, I didn’t realize, brushed it and it stung me. My knee was sore and swollen […]

My Sunday Photo – happy as a busy bee in lavender

So this photo and the title are slightly cheating because you can not actually see any of the hundreds of bees that were in this lavender field. We literally were surrounded by bees who were so happy and busy and not bothered by humans and it smelled amazing and sounded just perfect with bees buzzing […]
