Photos Scavenger Hunt


July
After seeing Home Jules post for June,
 I thought ...
What  a good Idea.

Thanks to Greenthumb of Made with Love for organising the hunt.

Scavenger Hunt
(I managed to find all these in one day and linked them to nature as much as possible, I think you can find photos over the moth though and I should have done June first..(Welcome to my scatty brain))

C is for...
Clover.
My Cardigan I lost the day before, then found it up a tree today.
Caterpillars.



9pm
The sun going down at the back of the house.





Stem
 Bamboo Stems, the birds hide in here,when the Sparrow Hawk is about,
and the Hedgehog comes into the garden through the gap in the Bamboo



Pool
 Pond at the park.


Dough
Bread dough, any left goes to the birds.




Liquid
My birdbath, the birds just love it..




Lever
I use this grabber which has a leaver to pick up Snails and Slugs..!







On the wall
At the park I found two trees and a Fern, technically I think they are in a wall as well as on !


Together 
Teenagers... now this was the first togetherness I found ! and if you think about it you don't often see one on it's own ..


In your bag (my camera bag )
There is my Camera and poo bags as well..


Your view today
Out the back door, I just love my pink wash basket !



Sweet
The Raspberries are doing well at the Park , I'll be making lots of SWEET jam.

    1. Thanks Roy, the sun going down was perfect timing, 9 pm. What's wrong with my hat !!, to be fair I wear it the other way round with the flowers on the inside.. But if I ever got lost in the middle of the country side, a helicopter would be able to spot me from miles away...flower side up :)

  2. What a great use for the'knicker picker', as we call it in this house.

    1. Thanks Jacqui, I cant't stand touching Slugs, they make me cringe and as you know I have many Slugs.. every house should have one of these grabbers, so handy..when new was used form knickers to socks after a opp.. even used for getting fruit out of trees
      ( cleaned mind you)..

  4. Love this post - scavenger hunts are fun although I have never partaken. Many times the topics are things I can't find in the middle of quiet countryside. I love your cardi stuck up a tree, how on earth did it get there?!!

    1. Thanks Mandy, you must have a go, maybe next month. It makes you look at things in a different way some times. My cardi is there because I had lost it the day before, it had got very hot so I had tied it round my waste, It was not till I had got home I realised it had dropped of. The next day I traced my steps..found it up a tree !!

  14. What a great selection of photos - glad you joined in! Hope there wasn't a collection of caterpillars in your cardi ;) I've never thought of using the long grabber to pick up snails and slugs...now I'll have to walk around the garden with mine and see what I can find! Lovely birdbath, garden, and pink laundry basket. :)

  15. Your photos are exquisite, especially that view of the pond and bamboo and I am salivating over the raspberry!!!
    Your garden is so nice and tidy!
    Am a little scared of the idea of picking up slugs and then dropping them accidently in the wrong place!x
    P.S. sorry I am so late in visiting- have been away on holiday with DREADFUL data signal!x
