This dates back to 2014 and was taken in a National Trust property near Cambridge called Anglesey Abbey. I had forgotten all about the droptes flying off the dogs wagging tail – someone was having a good time!
Once upon a time people used to write letters on paper and stick stamps on them and entrust them to the postman to deliver – which surprisingly often they did. happily we have more efficient ways to communicate today. This may end up in a museum – one of Her Majesty’s post boxes on a road corner in southern England.
In England four summers ago we visited, with friends, a small garden that was open one evening to raise money for a good cause – this is quite a thing in England. In an otherwise empty “garden room” we chanced upon this delightful seat for the weary gardener. “A large gin and tonic if you please”.
Starting to think it’s time for spring to arrive (6 weeks at least, but you can hope) and serendipitously happened upon this European Robin that was digitally collected two years ago in England … I like his facial expression. Very positive, as one needs to be at this time of a Quebec year.
The Quayside in St-Ives, Cambridgeshire on a cloudy day in May with interesting light and clouds.
The bridge from which the picture was taken is a medieval construction built in 1425, later blown up by Cromwell (a son of the town) before being rebuilt in 1716 … during the intervening years a drawbridge connected the two halves. We have morris-danced on the Quayside in years past.
