One of the things I enjoy each summer is taking part in Rinda's Summer Scavenger Hunt and I decided it is about time I share some of my photos. Some of the things on this years list seemed quite simple, birds on a wire for example... until you need a photo that is!! Birds on wires have been elusive, or seen when I am driving, and after a while I began scratching my head. Then I remembered this bird in our garden. It is suspended on a wire and I have more than one, so that counts. No. 3 ticked!
No. 18 - A waterfall was less difficult as we have a pond in our garden so I didn't have to go too far for this one.
No. 13 - A sunrise. In my former life I used to get up at 5am for work and frequently saw the sun rise. It would always give my day a good start and put a bit smile on my face. As I no longer have this routine it meant setting the alarm and first day it was too cloudy. Luckily my next attempt was more successful and this is the view from my bedroom window:
No.2 A garden gnome. This was another on the list that was initially elusive, and even my husband was on the look out for me. Finally I found some in a small supermarket and took a photo but better still, I came across these cheerful chappies at a local garden centre. Success!!
And I also got a second chance of taking birds on a wire too because while out on a local walk I came across this sign. Perfect!! I didn't know that this area had been the inspiration of Alfred Hitchcock's film, and since we discovered a lovely new walk along the river we will be going back. We might even get to take a photo, so if we are in time I'll share my third photo of birds on a wire!
I am enjoying seeing other Summer Scavenger Hunt photos and thank you Rinda for organising this again!! It's not too late for you to take part if you you're not already, and you can find out more here.
I have more photos to post and meanwhile here is the complete list.
