Wet and damp

Today has been wet and damp, but with loads of photo opportunities.

I love to see the pigeons on the roof opposite and today there were more there than usual.


The camera always comes out when I see the trees on the shore opposite look like this.


The sun came out for short periods now and then and showed the patchwork of fields on the hills.


You could almost see the trees changing colour. I hope the wind forecast in the next few days does not blow all the leaves away before they change colour.


More rain on the way!


I did get time to use my embellisher and below is a digital image. Ths is my way of relaxing.

I already knew it but what a beautiful part of the world you live in Margaret. I've just been catching up with your blog and have been enjoying your exploits with the catalogue, your distinguished DH and all your lovely work, not least the shell embroideries. I'm thinking this must be the lady who had an article in Stitch some time ago?

It brings back happy memories, seeing that view again! Lovely, whatever the weather.

Jackie said...

Good job you got to the soggy catalogue before those pigeons!

Thanks for your comments Julie, Sue and Jackie. My Virgin email is not working at all just now. Very frustrating. I hope it will solve itself.
Julie, this is not the lady who wrote in stitch magazine, Rosemary is one of the SerenTex crowd, a very clever lady, but she may have seen the article.

The birds all lined up are great. I can just imagine them chatting to each other.

I always love your pictures.

The embellisher piece looks like the rainbow after all that rain!

Lovely colours on your embellished piece and a beautiful capital M - I love Celtic script designs. More gorgeous photos where you can really stretch your eyes. I love where I live but we are a bit hemmed in with trees and other houses and have to travel a bit to get to really open countryside.

I'm hoping for a serendipitous find in the catalogue department myself. It's drier than a bone here and so windy that nothing will lay around the yard (what you call the garden) for long. I thought that being in the sprinkler would help but it seems that the dogs like it there so nothing has a hope of surviving! So good for you in capturing one in a suitable state of decay!

Thanks for all the comments, I still can't use my email to reply to you all.
I'm not sure if my catalogue is going to be of any use Wabbit! It seems to have become stuck together, hard as a board. But maybe that's what Maggie wants. We will all have to wait and see (BG)

What a view!

Stunning photos

Your pictures really are quite nice. I love your wet and damp part of the world.

Heather said...

I think all the catalogues will end up hard as boards and with the pages stuck together. The one my daughter gave me was like that already, and the ones in the garden are going that way. Hope your computer soon recovers - I miss your blogs. I am being assisted by a very large cat who keeps putting his paws on the key board. Perhaps I should allow him to post his own comment?!

I have been away too long. We have been so busy since the hurricane. First one thing then another.
Beautiful work and love the photos some of which look like painting1
