This week in pictures



Near where I live, The Roaches taken from Morridge Top.



The view out of my therapy room at work.



The tree in next doors garden that I watch whilst eating breakfast in my kitchen.



Consall Gardens in Staffordshire which I went round on Wednesday, the last day they are open ever.



Another view in these spectacular gardens

Oh these are beautiful. It makes me breathe easier just looking at them!

What beautiful views you have! I am so glad you left the photos big, so when we click on them we can see all the lovely details.

Are the gardens really closing permanently? I love the juxtaposition of old crumbling brick, rock or wood next to the natural world growing with reckless abandon.

These are terrific, Mandy, I really enjoyed seeing what you see.

I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Hugs,

How beautiful! It looks like the sun is out a lot, I imagine these pictures look entirely different in rain, but so pretty as well.

Paula said...

Love those pix. Particularly the one with crumbling arch - its nature claiming back what once belonged to nature ;-)

It's wonderful to see someone who lives somewhere so beautiful take the time to enjoy it. Gorgeous photos.

Beautiful pictures. I am quite jealous of the blue sky. We've had rain all week. when we don't it's absolutely gorgerous. A bit like your views. :)

Minnie said...

Beautiful pix, Mandy - thank you. It's a gorgeous area you live in, that's for sure. Am woefully ignorant of whole tracts of England, and sure there are many hidden delights in the landscapes.

Hi Mandy. I had fun enlarging these. I liked the chimney pots in the view from your therapy room at work.If you visited the beautiful gardens recently, does this mean your foot is feeling better? Hope so!

kj said...

Great photos! what is the story about Consall Gardens, last day they are open ever??

Catching up, and loved your post about Ypres, your dad and all those lost young soldiers. Very moving, and a good reminder to us all indeed.

What fabulous views you have Mandy. I have just visited the web site for Consall Gardens, it is very sad that it will be closed to the public now. The ground are breaktaking.

*sigh* What lovely things to capture. And what great captures!

I tote my camera around because it forces me to look at things I might otherwise miss.
Oh, I wouldn't have wanted to miss any of these views. *happy sigh*
