Windows are delightful things and I have to confess to collecting more than my fair share on my travels. Looking out or looking in, I’m equally happy. You never know what you might find, do you?
On my visit to Shropshire this week I stayed in a wonderful old Arts and Crafts property, Arden House, in Church Stretton. Looking out of the windows I could hardly wait to get started on another adventure.
It has the nicest of country pubs, even if a malevolent wasp might be hiding beneath the plate, ready to pounce. What’s this chap doing up there, you might wonder? Trimming back the wisteria, I believe, in rather precarious fashion.
I don’t mind scaling the heights now and again myself, in search of a good view. Stokesay Castle was a prime example.
There will be more, of course, but for now let me reassure you that the swelling from the sting has stopped. I hope to have matching hands again in the near future. Meantime you are free to go and look at Paula’s unusual Windows, because Thursday’s Special. And maybe spare a thought for Dawn? I haven’t lingered at her monthly challenge in the longest time.
