Sometimes, there are things that strike you as so beautiful you just want to keep them to yourself.
Yesterday I met a good friend and we strolled amongst the colours
Some of them were a bit bizarre
But some of them I just wanted to ‘hold’ on to for ‘ever’
But as you aren’t reading this I can!
It’s been a while since I posted one of these little self-challenges. I have photographed several, but somehow forgotten to put them online. They will appear at some point, but today I’m doing something slightly different.
I’ve had ‘flu! Thankfully I didn’t have it very badly, but at the same time my DH had a dose as well. Now I want to assure you that this was NOT manflu. It was the genuine article, and he was really poorly. I don’t want him to know that there were times when I was really worried about him – but I know that I can rely on you not to say anything. Today was actually his first day out for some time. We had some packages to post, and that is usually ‘his’ task. He was determined to do it today, but I went along as well, just in case. We walked into town – a distance of just over a mile – but it took nearly twice as long as usual he is so weak. I won’t bore you with all the details of a rather boring walk, but suffice it to say that he had to sit and rest on the way home, in our local park.
Basically it’s a wide open space on which soccer is played at weekends by amateur teams, but is surrounded by trees and even has it’s own small nature reserve. Today we were only using it as a short cut – and this was part of our view from the ‘resting place’. I was very tempted to leave my beloved and just take those few 100 steps, but thought better of it. So, instead, I’m sharing a few shots taken from one spot.
It was a beautiful day. Blue skies and sunshine. Perfectly autumn.
And then, on arrival home, the dream was shattered
The Weekly Photo Challenge is Dreamy. I was determined not to enter this week…… so you can draw your own conclusions ;)
Why is it that other people’s cyclamen always grow better than mine?

I know that many of you are aware that I dye. In fact, here are some fabrics that I have been dyeing just this week!
There is an element of endurance involved in the dyeing, nothing is instant, taking time improves not only the colours but also the effects.
My subject of the Weekly Photo Challenge, however, is none of the above! The subject is some of the vital equipment that I cannot do without!
After many months of searching, I have finally found rubber gloves that don’t disintegrate after just two days of use! Not only do they last…… they also fit the length of my fingers which mean that I can manipulate the fabric and threads within the dye!
Well worth the enduring search………………..! ;)
