I took this last week a few hours after I posted my blog with the Gazania in lieu of a sunset. Nature excelled herself, for a little while, the rain came back the following morning.
A view of the ruins at Furness Abbey, Cumbria UK taken in 2002. They are situated a couple of miles from where I lived as a child and were a great place to play. The Abbey was destroyed in the reign of King Henry the VIII in the Dissolution of the Monasteries. Read all about it here,
A view from inside through the arches.
A beautiful example of an English country garden, on Abbey Road.
I apologise for the condition of the photograph, I took it on an old 126 Kodak camera. What I wanted to show was how prolific nature can be. this is an Ivory Curl tree that grew in the garden of a house I lived in. The flowers are the size of bananas and were always covered in bees.
More ruins, this time a settler’s cottage near Quorn in South Australia.
I can only describe it as a Mack truck threesome in the car-park at Wal-Mart, San Antonio, Texas, 2002.
Bottle Brush shrub in the back yard, the rain certainly gave it a welcome boost.
That’s it for this week, I still have a limited internet connection and hope to be up and running next week. Thanks for dropping by and looking at my pictures. Laurie.
