Recently we visited the City of Canterbury in Kent. We stayed in a nearby Caravan and Camping Club site and walked in to the City each day to explore the ancient streets with beautiful old buildings, including Canterbury Cathedral. However the Cathedral didn’t allow dog owners and was also being renovated so that’ll be for another day. I always do a sketchbook log of our motorhome trips but decided this time to make up a handmade sketchbook zine of our trip complete with collaged found objects made into little Canterbury houses and shops as bookmarks. A little different, I know!

Between weary evergreens
And lean stretching trees.
A golden brook of
Daffodils lyrically babbles
And violets hide in every nook,
Adorning the woodland floor.
Spring’s door has gently opened,
Surprising us and giving
Yesterday, even though the sunshine didn’t manage to peep through the clouds, spring’s door had opened with its perfumed breath. Joyously, we walked through an old Victorian park in Bedford, chatting and taking in the splashes of emerging colourful buds and flowers. It was a beautiful day. Thank you nature and thank you friends for putting up with me diving about taking photos. 🙂
Celebrating Midsummer 2015
Walking in a midsummer meadow with bare feet…
Having fun feeling the grass tickling our noses….
Love summer…love nature…love life!
Everywhere we’ve been this summer for our walks have inspired me to celebrate nature with my camera. Many thanks to my beautiful border collies for their company and putting up with me spending time taking photos when they wanted to play ball. 🙂
Masquerading Veiled Fairies
Masquerading veiled fairies
Dance in a cascading
As radiant stamens
Parade their flames.
The dogs and I love to walk in our local nature reserve; I call it the Fairy Woodland because it really is a special place to sit and enjoy magical moments such as the delicate scent of mingled blossom from a dew drop, a tiny Blue butterfly sunning its wings on a buttercup, a cuckoo and at dusk the eerie cry of a barn owl.
Happy first day of June everyone. 🙂
Weekly photo challenge: refraction-autumnal refractions
After heavy rainfall, stalking a shot, I found myself in the protection of this great tree, where light refraction was magically happening as the autumn sunshine filtered through the canopy.So beautiful.

What could be better than watching my dog weaving through the meadow! A beautiful breezy day with a few menacing clouds to complete the scene.
Here’s the other one cooling down. Oh what fun we’re having today.
I’ve also added my post to Michelle’s weekly pet challenge. You can see the other entries below.

Serene Saturday: Cerulean Cornflowers
Sedately soaring like
An old Egyptian legend tells us that tourmaline, on its way up from the centre of the earth, passed over a rainbow. So that’s why it is still referred to as the ‘gemstone of the rainbow’.
Toumaline in crystal therapy is known to heal the mind.
