Window Gazing

I always have my camera with me when we visit new places, particularly on our holiday destinations. These 'Window' pictures came from a photo taken in Belgium some years ago. I thought it was about time I used it!!

Flower Festival

There is to be a Flower Festival at our local church in the near future. This is a crescent shape I have created in silk flowers ready for the celebration.
It's an age since I have arranged flowers and this took a while to develop but I am satisfied with the finished article.

A New Wall

This looks promising, preparations for a small wall to replace one built by a contractor which fell down through lack of sufficient cement in the mix. This was a job from our "ten year list", long overdue.

A triumph, the new wall and what a back-aching job it was for Dennis. It's well worth the long wait. I'm delighted!! He's made a super job of it.

An Experiment in Blues

I copied a photo in shades of blues some time ago and just got round to experimenting with it, using watercolour paints. I enjoyed doing it, learnt a lot and will be trying it again in the future, using a mix of richer colours together with muted shades.

A Red Letter Day

An exciting day, when playing golf with Dennis at Warley Park Golf Club I got a 'Hole in One' for the first time!!
Having started playing golf in 1980, in my opinion, it was long overdue.

For this miraculous achievement I used a five wood on the 7th hole on course two, a 167yd. par three hole. Unfortunately it won't go into the records as I wasn't playing in a competition, it was just for fun. Believe me it gave me great pleasure!
