Labyrinthine curves

On a clear morning which was chilly enough for frost on rooves, I suddenly remembered where I could find some curves for the rounded photo challenge from the Daily Post. I took two photos – an overview and a close-up.

The subject is a labyrinth, which was constructed in a park as a millennium project.

A blogging friend at Wordsworth House and Garden

It was a wet Wednesday when hubby and I visited a childhood home of William and other young Wordsworths. We ate lunch in the tearoom, looked round the latest exhibition (about a famous Lake District landmark – the Bowder stone) and braved the damp to visit the garden.

The autumn flowers had vibrant colours, which contrasted with the grey day. We were delighted to see that Fletch the Perchcrow, who was the first blogger I met in “real life”, was keeping a watchful eye on the garden. It was good to see the head gardener, Amanda, as well. (My first meeting with these two was described on Sue’s Trifles.)

Wordsworth House and Garden is open until 29 October 2017 Saturday to Thursday. There is a programme of talks. Reopens March 2018.

Window to water

Recently I have become fascinated by the effects of light and weather on the view of the beck near home. I took a snap to record the level of the water following some heavy rain. Then I took one at a different angle to see how they compared. It was spitting with rain at the time.

On a sunny morning I took a photo, which was clearer.

Then on a sunny afternoon there was the glare of the sun’s reflection. I took two more photos.

The bridge makes a window to the beck. The Daily Post’s photo challenge is Window.
