I almost walked over this poor little hedgehog this morning! In November – fancy that! The fact that it went totally still and pretended to be part of the background didn’t help at all..
This dream-like scene seen at the National Trust Anglesey Abbey property using an iPhone. To me, everything in here symbolises spring. Daffodils, Hyacinths, Cherry Blossoms and the brilliant hues of a Japanese maple tree.
If you came looking for Fred or Wilma Flintstone, then you’ve come to the wrong place :)!
East Anglia and Norfolk in England have many flint stones that can be found littering the countryside. Flints have been used since the stone-age to make sharp-edged weapons like axes and arrow-heads, as well as in the creation of sparks to produce a fire. The flints found in our local area take on peculiar shapes, like the one below which looks like a horseshoe.
Maybe it is post-christmas blues, or that we’ve all had to come back to work after a long break! The dried teasel below mirrors my feelings exactly!!
Photographed on 7th January, 2014 using an iPhone and processed in Adobe Lightroom with Photomatix Pro.
Photographed on one of my usual lunch time walks. The teasel (Dipsacus) has dry spiny inflorescence head that make lovely additions to floral arrangements!
