Photos Scavenger Hunt



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

O is for ?

Orange...
the Amanita Muscaria mushroom and Japanese lantern plants (Physalis alkekengi), I have got to find this plant for my garden next year..






6pm

It's now dark at 6pm and the lamps are on....









Morning

There's nothing like a good scratch and clean before breakfast ......






Something you bought


I came across this book when reading through Tims blog "Notes of nature" (see his review)
 by  Francesca Greenoak, its the most wonderful book about nature found in Churchyards across Britain, with beautiful illustration on every page.  





Light

Because the light is so low, it casts shadows...









Close up

If I had the space I would have a pet sheep called Doris , and a photo of a snail on a seed head.




Favourite

Trees are my favourite thing at the moment, in the wood near our house, some of the trees have faces.






Lunch

Has to be cheese on toast...







Childhood

Jigsaws were a big part of our childhood, even mum and dad loved doing them, once they did a million piece jigsaw that filled the front room floor, no fancy computers then. As I have been of with my hand I have had time to do this jigsaw my sister bought me last Christmas. 







Your Sky

From fluffy clouds to the red of sunsets....








Colour








Your shoes

I am not a shoe person, I have one pair I use till they fall of my feet........




Happy Hunting

  12. Your terrific photos are so clear! Love 'Doris' and the snail; enjoyed your sky photos ~ brilliant sunset; the photos of the light playing with the shadows was ingenious! Enjoyed reading about your parents' creation of that unbelievable jigsaw that filled the floor, and no wonder they played such a memorable part of your childhood. The bird jigsaw is so pretty ~ do you frame them after doing all that work, or take them apart again?

  13. Thanks Glo, I once covered a wall at the top of the stairs by gluing jigsaws to the wall, it did look good ( decorated so took them down) so the last few I have done I just take apart, seems a shame in a way.
