My Sunday Photo – September 23rd, 2018.

It’s been a bit of a dreary (not to mention windy) week in Norfolk and Freya and I got soaked for the first time this term walking home from school on Friday. As a result I thought I’d share some sunshine in the form of these sunflowers.

Mark came home from work with them, which was a lovely surprise. It just happened to be a night when there was a beautiful sunset too and I couldn’t resist getting them together.

They lasted a good while but as they were getting past their best, I decided to have a play with them. I’m always admiring flatlays on Instagram. How hard can it be, I wondered? Actually quite hard indeed when you don’t know what you’re doing.

The only one I like is this one.

I’d quite like to work it into my blog header, some how.

I hope you’ve had a sunny week.

A Happy Day At Pensthorpe in Norfolk.

My poor blog, it’s feeling very neglected at the moment.

It can’t be helped, sadly. I’ve been using all of my words (and time) to frantically try and finish my submission for the RNA New Writers’ Scheme before Freya finishes school for the summer on Tuesday.

To make up for lack of words, I’m sharing some pictures instead. We had a lovely day at Pensthorpe yesterday, including seeing their new Wetland Discovery area. It is always hard to convince Freya to leave the amazing play areas but even she couldn’t resist the beautiful flowers (and a butterfly or 50).

I hope you’re all keeping well.

I’ll be back!

 

A Celebration Of Colour At The Plantation Garden In Norwich.

IMG_5104 2With grey sky for the last few days, I felt a bit delirious to find myself not only under a brilliant blue sky but surrounded by colour on a visit to the Plantation Garden in Norwich – and I just had to share.

You can find out more about this hidden gem in the heart of the city in my previous posts here and here but I thought for this one I’d just share some photos. Hope you enjoy them.

If you happen to be in Norwich, the Plantation Garden, in Earlham Road, is well worth a visit (as is the cathedral next door). They are bringing back the outdoor cinema on certain dates in July and August (full info here) which I imagine would be a glorious experience.

I hope you’re having a colourful day too.
