I’m skipping my regular post this week because I’ve been busy, and ill, and busy again:
‘Research Thursdays’ will resume next month.
In the meantime, here are some pretty pictures of our seafront, beach, and my garden!
The Fruit trees:
When we moved in we were delighted to discover we had three fruit trees: Plum, Pear and Apple. We bought a cherry tree this year to add to the collection.
I hope we get apples this year. Last year the tree was leaning over the fence into the alley behind the house and some unknown rapscallions took them. This year we’ve attached a rock to the tree to weight it back over our side of the fence. I really want my home made apple pie to have home grown apples, so here’s hoping!
A rickety bridge in our local park:
Doesn’t this inspire a lot of stories about trolls under the bridge? I wish I grew up near this park, because it would have been an awesome place to play.
Sunrise over the sea, and a seafront statue:
This was taken along our promenade, very early one winters morning. The sun rises in the east, and where I live? It’s the most easterly point in the UK!
They don’t look like much yet, but I’m hoping they’ll grow! Last year I grew some great cucumbers. I’m hoping this year they’ll be just as good.
The cat hidey hole:
When we replaced our old gate in February we left the old one on the dirt at the edge of the garden with the intention of dumping it. It’s still there, settled at an incline and now overgrown. I’ve seen cats hiding under it!
We’re not amazing at keeping our garden tidy. We’re more researchers, writers, and gamers. The grass is pretty long, and it’s going to be a project to sort this mess out in time for summer!
The most beautiful picture of the sun over the sea:
I have a ton of pictures like this from early morning bike rides, but I think the one above is my favourite because it captured the waves just as they broke near the rocks.
The dilapidated shed:
Our shed’s needed knocking down since we moved in 4 years ago, and it’s a project we’re tackling at the end of May. It’s not going to be fun. The previous owners left a ton of junk in there, and it’s very damp and full of spiders!
The sea shore:
There’s something beautiful about the water sparkling in the sun light. I took this picture standing in the sea looking along the shore. The sun may have been warm, but the water was still cold!
Thanks for reading!
I hope you enjoyed my little photo montage. What’s the most beautiful location where you live? How does your garden look? Do chores and maintenance tasks fall by the wayside because of other hobbies and interests? Let me know in the comments!
