Yaletown Vancouver is where I stayed a few years back with my old school friend. My friend lives on Granville Island, but we stayed in Yaletown for part of my visit which is just a short ferry ride across the way. Some days I was left to explore on my own, but always managed (surprisingly) …
A triple post today : 'W' Sculpture Saturday and Six Word Saturday: Another dive into the library - today looking for W - and who knew Yorkshire Sculpture Park is located in Bretton Country Park in West Bretton. ( Not me-as Geography is not my forté ) As it's also a good post for Sculpture Saturday it had to be!
Raindrops are welcome but I hope that's not the end of the fabulous weather 😦

Howard believed that such Garden Cities were the perfect blend of city and nature. After a city reaches its target population, new interconnected nodes can be developed.

Cloudless Sky March challenge and Wordless Wednesday.
in my garden I spent the day in my garden yesterday: clearing winter leaves, mowed the lawn, trimmed, and pruned some overhanging branches, uncovered some new growth, and generally tidied up. The garden is renewing as it does every year hopefully everything has survived the winter. Mr Robin followed me around to keep my company, …

Speciality: The Sea :More of a passion than a speciality, but all things seem to link to the sea in my everyday and my art practice.
In My Garden Pair In My Garden always lots going on. My cats at different times have had friendly confrontations with various wildlife. Cleo with a deer and a fox- the fox backed off. Rex also with a fox. I've had no problems with foxes apart from their deposits on the lawn, I expect marking …

Decided to compile my own collage and play with the individual images before I take the plunge and order a more professional printed collage. Very time consuming capturing these stills from the time lapse but good thinking time too.......... this is …
