As dusk is falling I sit and watch bats flit and fly around the garden, come the morning I watch the blue tits scampering from the Magnolia tree to a currant bush and down to take a sip from the pond. Playful and watchful, flashes of yellow and blue.
I sit back and watch, I leave the camera indoors, besides I have tea to drink
On the allotment activity is slowing down, gradually less and less to pick and bring home, less to pickle and freeze.
Brown seed heads bob in the breeze as spiders weave their webs
Life close up shows me the detail, the leaf formations, the patterns, the grooves, the inner workings of plant life.
Hard to imagine in a few months time that all this big-bang of colour will be gone, a memory.
It feels like there are some final swansongs going on – big bursts of colour and activity before the cooler days come
Wherever I go there is colour, be it the sky, the grass, the trees, the flowers and insects, or the sea
The colours will change with the seasons
There is plenty of colour in life to share if you look for it.
A question and a request
In a few weeks time I’m going on a wee holiday, a little breakie. I’m unsure about internet connections where I’m going and to be honest I think I fancy a wee break from blogging, A piece of time to put my feet up and have a snooze. I may be able to keep up with your blogs while I’m away and respond to comments, but probably not to write and photograph. So I thought I’d ask you if you if fancy dropping in, literally dropping a few words and photos in while I’m away.
Do you fancy being a guest blogger here on the Promenade? You could tell us a story, a bit about your garden, your pot plant or your world, maybe cook something up for us while I’m away. It doesn’t have to be an epic tale or a long and winding tale, it could be a few words, a poem a beautiful image that you have captured or created.
Just a suggestion, an idea – a bit of fun to share. I follow lots of amazing blogs and there are plenty of fantastic friends who drop by to read and like and comment. It would be wonderful to see more of you here and you might meet a few new faces and make some new friends!
If you have an idea and want to play drop me a line, we can have a chat. I’ve no idea how Guest Blogging really works but we could find out together couldn’t we
Or of course I could just go on holiday and shut up, and you could all have a break too
