So many white objects I could have chosen (snow, frost etc etc) but I thought out of the box
and decided to use the white head of a coot. I had to wait ages for it to swim close enough!
This metal object (near to where I live) is undergoing renovation work.
It is for men only! Yes it is a pissoir. Click here to read more about them.
Rather than just take a photo I walked across the road (when there was a lull
in the traffic) and called out Hello! A chap came out, paint brush in hand
and I asked if I could take a photo, explaining why.
He disappeared inside and I went back to the other side of the road and
took my photo! I will have to return when the renovations are complete.
Years ago it used to look very smart but it then went into decline.
Now this was difficult.... but I think I've managed a include the following photo provided I interpret camouflage as DISGUISE and not as CONCEALMENT. So what did I find?
At first glance I thought frog spawn but then it is barely mid-February, far too early I think.
On closer inspection it is lots of bubbles, stuck next to a piece of dried stem and stones.
The water was gently flowing down a footpath as we walked up to our local trig point.

A sheep considering JUMPING off this wall.
Thankfully she decided to turn round and
drop back into the field.
Top part of this collage shows buds of Rheum palmatum.
They generally appear at the end of February/early March.
Then all of a sudden it is at least 2 metres tall and of a
similar width. I love it!
When we were about to move, Beloved muttered
about it not moving with us... I managed to sneak
7 pieces into the garden... I've no idea how
many will re-appear this year but I can still go
back to the old house and get more if I have to!
6 Own Choice
Back in August 2014 I decided to make a fabric picture to embellish the front of this notebook.
Somehow I never got on with it but back in October 2017 I suddenly felt I had to finish it.
I'd only just finished it when she said she was thinking of retiring....
Gosh, I'd made it just in time as my original plan was for it to be a retirement planning
notebook for her but I thought I had a few more years.
I made the blue cord using Kumihimo technique. Click here to read about this.
Finally I added a bead that a mutual friend had given me when she was
moving house and had to de-clutter
Did she like it? Oh yes she did. The picture is a loose representation of her garden.
Well, thanks for stopping and having a look. Don't forget to look at Hawthorn's photos by clicking here.
