Scavenger Hunt for May

I'm showing these in order of the list, except for my favourite, which I have saved for last.

1. A bicycle (Ben's transport to and from college)

2. A rather pretty butterfly.

3. A cartoon character

4. A red door. (What a lovely entrance to a home!)

5. A sign of the zodiac (Aries the ram) which happens to be the logo of my local city council.

6. A street light (or three).

7. An emergency vehicle

8. An interesting local building. (Loads to choose from here, but I had to select Derby Cathedral)

9. Something blue (It's a very long time since my boys would get excited over riding on something like this!)

10. Texture (Smell that coffee!!)

11. Think vintage
This twenty four hour grandfather clock was inherited by my uncle from his parents who received it as a wedding present in 1926. The clock was given by Mr and Mrs Harry Taylor (my uncle's mum's sister and brother-in-law). Harry Taylor was the brother of Derbyshire born children's author Alison Uttley and this clock is the one which is mentioned in many of her books.

And finally...

12. A portrait in black and white of the most photogenic member of our family.
