A Thank You and an art Winner

Thank you to everyone who sent in their favourite piece of art
The photos made for some sweet visuals in a particularly wet and grey start to the winter.
I couldn't really pick a " winner"
The entries were far too eclectic
But I will give this photo ( taken at midnight last night) an award to Mother Nature
It was stormy last night and the rain lashed the honeysuckle and climbing rose that surrounds the front door.
One long arm of rose swung in front of the button small window and the mood and light from the lane cast a delicate shadow on the wall,
As pretty and as unexpectedly sweet than any Georgian sampler.

I had a lunch date cancelled today ( par for the course) so I made a lasagne and will settle down with that and a movie in due course.
Choir and badminton later !!
The miserable postman has just delivered some very welcomed gifts
A hospice book ( thank you Cheryl) a Daryl Dixon cup ( mwah Liz) were dropped off today and a week or two ago a lovely hand thrown pot from who knows!


  1. Very pretty!
    We can find beauty anywhere, right?
    I'm kind of sad that winter is basically here and we will have to wait for at least four moths to have flowers again...


  2. And this is how fabric design begins. Glad you didn’t try to choose from all those submissions.

  3. It is now a paticularly miserable day here John and this 'gentle' design was a worthy winner. What a delightful idea to take it.

  4. thanks for doing the art contest! it was fun to see all of it.

    I really enjoyed seeing the amazing variety of interesting art that pleases each of us and appreciate your idea to have the contest.

  11. Will you see Daaave John? he's luurverly-he's just my type x

  12. Wonderful shadow photo. I can never get mine to come out as nice as yours.

  13. My postman is always happy. We are on first name terms and he puts things under cover if he can't get them through the door and I'm not here. Why do you have such miserable postmen?

    1. He has always been a grump. Ever since William tried to bite his fingers through the letter box ....
      I tried to be nice
      And laid a box out for him to put the post into , but then the postcard competition was set and he saw his arse

  14. Poor wet man to bring such nice bounty.
