Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge – Pairs, Two’s, etc


A Pair of Beach Huts

I guess two Beach Huts on a Norfolk beach is a suitable subject for this weeks B&W Photo Challenge.

And Brock turned up in our Garden….


Brock….The Badger

We have never had a Badger in our garden…but this young one turned up on Sunday!

He is a bit of a poser and  stands quite ‘statuesque’ hiding behind the herbs.   Buster had a sniff, turned his nose up and has ignored Brock eversince.

Ok he ain’t real…… but a quirky Fathers Day gift, and those are perhaps the best gifts to receive.

But an extra Gift from Nature was the blooming of our first Day Lily of the Season..

Monday….. Back to work (again)

Blacksmiths Bench

The Blacksmiths Bench

Monday…..  so back to work again.  Rather glad it is not at the Blacksmiths bench, it would always have been HOT hard work but in our current mini heatwave it could be unbearable.

Enjoy your Monday….

Don’t Rock the Boat….


Don’t Rock the Boat….

None of us want to end up “in the drink” as the saying goes…..but the way our Political (so called) Leaders are going on we could all end up in the proverbial drink.

If only the Politicians  would listen to what the electorate was saying….just for once, please.

I guess the fisherman above has the right idea…getting away from all the media and political hype…. for some very welcome peace and quiet
