June alphabet Letter I or eye

I took my photos for this CMMC (Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge) almost as soon as it was added to the upcoming topics.

It was a little tricky to catch a sheep’s eye, but at last I found a co-operative sheep.

So here is a sheep’s eye and the context in a separate picture.

March pick a topic CMMC

Cee Neuner’s midweek madness challenge (CMMC) this week is Pick a topic from my photo.

Cee’s photo (linked above) is of a cityscape with a large building.

One of the large buildings near home is the parish church which is about 900 years old. (It has had much maintenance work done on it inside and outside over the centuries!)  There are trees as in Cee’s photo and blue sky. Mine is a rural landscape.

A walk from Wray Castle NT

Our first outing after lockdown relaxed was to Wray Castle near Ambleside in the Lake District. The castle itself was still closed, but the car park had some space (although it is rather pricey for non-members of the National Trust) and there are plenty of walks to choose from. It was a fine day. We took a picnic and met a member of our family, suitably socially-distanced, of course. It is advisable to check online for how busy car parks in the Lake District are, before setting out.

The circular walk we did took us to the lake (Windermere), along a path, up a hill and back through a village. We saw lots of wild flowers and some birds.

A photo of sheep I took has already appeared on Sue’s Trifles Paint Chip Poetry challenge 28.
