Shout it from the roof tops!
It’s June, and Becky’s back again with a brand new series of squares. Knowing how much everyone enjoyed the last series, I can’t help but feel I’ll be missing out, but I’m off to Poland tomorrow. Plac Zamkowy (Castle Square) in Warsaw will be my only contribution to Roof Squares for now, but I’ll be keeping a watchful eye on those roof tops.
No Monday walk next week, but I have a post scheduled for Thursday, when I hope to be on my way to Kraków with a fistful of happy memories. Apologies if my responses are slow. Till then, have a great weekend and don’t forget to share your Six Words with Debbie.
A grey day on the Quay
On Tuesday our luck ran out on the north east coast, and grey replaced the blue. Was I down-hearted? Not at all! The Blacksmith’s Needle in forged steel still looked great, but when it started to rain I hot-footed it over the Millennium Bridge to Baltic Centre of Contemporary Art.
“Missing Time” by Serena Korda is inspired by the healing potential of sound and the Dark Skies of the Northumberland landscape. You are invited to sit on a chair and listen to ‘the sound of the stars’.
Idea of North explores the sense of community, place and collective belonging, connecting historical moments with individual stories. Partly inspired by Peter Davidson’s book, “The Idea of North”(2005), it poses some interesting questions. Debbie’s a little slow with her Six Words this week but I’m sure she’ll be along later. Meantime, enjoy her great photography and have a happy weekend!
Spinning and spinning and spinning around…
There’s always Liquid to be found when you live on the coast, but it’s not every day you find a jet ski showing off inside the lock gates.
This view is a constant, though… so long as the sky is blue! Wishing you a happy day, whether you spend it watching Harry and Meg, outstanding tennis, the FA Cup final or none of those. The one thing you must do is share Six Words with Debbie.
Still in an English country garden
The warm spell has left us for a little while, but I have the loveliest memories of my visit to Thorp Perrow Arboretum. I had too many photos to share in just one post, so I thought I’d treat my Saturday readers to some sunshine too.
The lake meanders off into a stream here, skirting a couple of islets as it goes, and creating wonderful reflections.
What do you think? I make no apologies for a second post. It was glorious! There’s some great food on offer at Debbie’s place this weekend. Pop over with your Six Words, and have a happy time!
The star of our Spring garden
She’s a beauty, isn’t she? I can’t think of a better compliment to a blue sky. It’s turned rather chilly now, but I’ve sat beneath our Amelanchier on every possible occasion this Spring. Join Debbie with a smile and Six Words this Saturday.
A hint of blue should do!
Most of the UK will have their share of blueness this weekend. I’m just contributing a little more. It was actually a cool, damp day in the Algarve when I wandered into the museum and church of Igreja da Misericordia de Tavira. I had the place entirely to myself and spent a very pleasant hour browsing. I’d say that the pretty blue ceramic tiles, azulejos, are Prolific in Portugal, wouldn’t you?
Enjoy whatever blue skies and sunshine come your way, but don’t forget to share Six Words with Debbie. You may be bamboozled!
Random images remind me of ‘home’
In the midst of packing, and abysmal English weather, I pause to look back at what I have to look forward to. One of these images might get me into trouble when I return. My very last day, when the dry river beds weren’t, but the company was good.
I hope Spring has sprung for you. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! Let’s get straight to the point with Debbie and her Six Words.
