Here is another book I bought for the cover! I did read this when I was a child though. Isn't it just a lovely illustration? I love the muted colours with just the touch of red.
This is from our holiday last year-in Dumfries and Galloway. We saw some pretty gardens and some remote castles-the best one on a small island that we were rowed to by a retired man with lots of stories to tell! I like the way the red just leaps out from amongst the softer pinks and violets.
Sugary prettiness! When I was thinking about red yesterday I thought about common and familiar things and postboxes came to mind. I did not go to take a photo though but found this from Scotland last year too. This is in Dumfries. Looking at it I realise it does not have a mark to indicate who was King or Queen. Unusual-maybe that was why I took the photo!
My knitting wool from the scarf I am making. It is paired with blue and will feature stripes! Yes, I know it is the summer, but I watched a programme about home crafts the other day that heavily featured knitting and I just wanted to do some. I do about four rows a night! I am making a scarf, the extent of the evolution of my knitting skills, despite the best efforts of both of my Nans and My Great Aunty Peggy! I can do squares too!
