Hi Freda, I heard my first cuckoo yesterday morning too! Lovely pictures, especially the seed heads with shadows (alliums?) and those beautiful perfectly matching blues. Been enjoying catching up with your posts. x
Been missing yours but hope you had a lovely time away!
Love the shadows created by those plants on the white surface. Enjoy blogfree time. Take good care of yourself.
Don't stay away too long.
Just needed to retreat for a few days..
Thank you for that wonderful performance. I couldn't even read the music fast enough let alone imagine playing it. I'll look forward to your first day back!
Stephen Hough is brilliant!
You have such a gift for colour, Freda, the pictures in this post are such a joy. Thank you. Penny xxx
I have such fun taking them Penny so am glad you enjoy them too.
Lovely pictures. The first three ones and the two last ones would make a great set of postcards! Maybe they could be the SET FIVE?
Enjoy your pause, I'll be waiting for your return!
Thanks for that suggestion....!
Thanks for sharing the recording Freda, I enjoyed it immensely. I was lucky enough to hear Stephen Hough when he performed in my town a few years ago - I think he's one of the greatest living pianists we have.
I heard him once in Glasgow - astonishing and life-affirming!
'This story is about a bowl.
A bowl - waiting to be filled.
If what I have just written makes no sense to you,
I am not surprised.
If I had known in the beginning what I was looking for,
I would not have written this story.
I had to trust there was a reason I had to write,
and I didn't have to have it all figured out in order to begin.
I would find what I was looking for
along the way.
This is how 'Every Day Sacred' by Sue Bender begins. A story
about a bowl. A bowl like yours in that beautiful photograph. Every day sacred.
I love this Cath! It really resonates.
(I love when you talk to each other here...)
I have this book too Cath! You inspired me to get it out and have another read - thank you.
Al lovely post, the colours in the pictures are so fresh and vibrant! I also love allium seed heads they are so pretty and always look wonderful creating shadows on the wall. Take care on your blog break. Sarah x
Thank you Sarah.
