I've been AWOL for about 3 months, but am finally back with a selection of photos for November's Scavenger Hunt, hosted by Kathy from Postcards from the PP.
A poppy (a real one) taken in Spring near to Ingleby in Derbyshire.
The gates of the Memorial Gardens in Ashbourne, with the display of poppy wreaths, laid to remember those who fell in the wars.
Branches silhouetted against the sunrise.
Something I have made; sloe gin. It's ready for drinking but I don't want to decant it until just before Christmas.
Something purple. These are the front and back views of my Stewarding Team - Control Office T shirt from the New Wine Conference this summer.
Warmth - the sun; still giving warmth even on a November morning.
Polka dots on a towel.
I had difficulty with 'A lucky charm' because I don't have any. I do however, tend to pick things up and hang onto them. This wizened conker has been in my fleece pocket for at least two years. (I do take it out when I wash the fleece :) )
Something which lights up.
These candles sit on my hearth and add a lovely glow on a dark winter evening.
The staircase is from the top floor of the Lakeland Climbing Centre in Kendal. The bouldering room is on the top floor.
This mince pie is waiting to comfort me as I struggle to fend off a cold on this November afternoon.
Finally - I hate having my photo taken!
