Change of scene

Having changed my background and heading on here I thought it was about time I posted again.
Two days ago, the weather being good, I thought I would go for a walk/cycle. Someone had told me that there were some pretty gardens to see and photograph so taking my camera, as usual, and getting on my bike I went exploring. I never found the gardens but I found something probably much better, butterflies. In Severn Fields the grass was high and in flower also wild flowers abound perfect for the flutterers and perfect for me if I had patience to wait. Unfortunately I shouldn't have had my bicycle as there was no where I could prop it up so had to lay it down on the ground. Still I did manage to get these photos

Hi Mary I thought your ginger cat photo and caption were really funny!
By the way.... how do you put a photo into the comment section on Shimelle's blog? I've tried everything to post my photos directly to her comment box but no joy! If you wouldn't mind telling me I'd appreciate it!

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
