May CMMC colour purple

The theme this week for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge (CMMC) is the colour purple.

The photo I have picked is perhaps at the blue end of the purple part of the spectrum. This month we had some very cold weather for the time of year and snow fell on high ground. My photo is of some of the Cumbrian Mountains taken from high ground near the coast using the Zoom facility on my camera.

May Macro CMMC Photo Challenge

Cee Neuner’s Midweek Madness Challenge this week is for a macro or close up. Until this week all my photos have been taken using a phone. Now I have decided I have the patience to use the small camera hubby bought for me a couple of years ago. It is more versatile than a phone’s camera.

My photo for this week is a camellia in our garden. It has survived the driest and frostiest spring with some extra watering and produced three flowers.


I am delighted that my post last week was featured by Cee.

April Alphabet CMMC Challenge – Letter E at the beginning or end of the word

Living in a county where there are more sheep than people I often walk along footpaths inside or adjacent to sheep fields. A female sheep is a ewe. Most of them have lambs at this time of year. Last week a ewe and a lamb posed for their photo. (It is cropped to remove the foreground – I didn’t want to frighten them away!)

Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge is for a word with e at the beginning or end. Ewe has both!

We know we look cute!
