WordPress Challenge : Lines

Lines

We were getting near to the end of a long walk and the light was starting to fade when I took this photograph.  Along the south west coast path near a place called Hartland Quay are some incredible rock formations, some in the cliff face and some below the cliffs like these.

Only when the tide goes out are these appreciated.  In this remote spot we were lucky enough to be passing at the right time!

Lines of rock – 300 million years old.

WordPress Challenge : Awakening

Awakening

Well it’s taking a long time. Warm spring sunshine has been delayed for a few weeks by fog, mist and rain this year.  Here on the east coast of the U.K. it seems to have lingered on and on.  Or, has it been the same in other parts of the country? Oh how we love to talk about the weather…..

So, this has been a bit of a challenge – to find something that seems to be waking up.  However, we have an old Rhodededrum in our garden that flowers early (for Rhodededrums) in a beautiful deep red.  It’s display is big and flamboyant.  Here there are buds that are preparing to open….

And here is one that seems to be just ahead of all the rest….it seems to have timed it to perfection with the sun finally making an appearance this afternoon.
